Mother's Day Cootie Catcher


Raise your hand if you have made a cootie catcher when you were a kid. Well, I have! 🙋. They go by multiple names like a paper fortune teller or chatterbox and a couple more.

If you don't know, a cootie catcher is a form of origami paper folding game. Parts of the cootie catcher are labelled with colors or numbers for players to choose from and the inside has a message or action item for the players. Based on the number or color the player chooses, the cootie catcher needs to be adjusted.

If you're looking for a fun preschool activity for mother's day, this cootie catcher is just a perfect mothers day ideas for kids.


What I love about this activity is that kids can spell each word out loud as they open and close the cootie catch. so LOVE would mean open and close 4 times. Also, older kids can spell the color out too. There are some really sweet activities that kids can do for their mothers as they play the game.

Isn't it a wonderful way to wish Happy Mother's Day?


If you're wondering, when is mothers day, it varies by the country. In most of the countries including the United States, it is celebrated on the second Sunday of May. So, this year, mother's day is on May 12th, 2019.
