AND WHEN I SAY PAPER FINGER GAME, I MEAN...

You remember them. You know you do. Those games that you'd make by folding and refolding and refolding a square piece of paper, and then numbering the tabs and writing on the other side all sorts of silly answers or people's names or how many kisses you were gonna get under the bleachers.


They must have a name. Please, something better than "paper finger game," which is what I labeled the video, and am now all self-conscious that I may have revealed just a little too much about my personal life.

Hunh, good question. Got me googling:

"fortune teller, (cootie catcher, scrunchie, chatterbox)"

What do I win?

Good question. All I know is that I am supposed to marry Ben Soto and have 4 babies. I'm still waiting...

@sonia BWAHHAHAHA, "cootie catcher"!!! Reminds me of the "lint licker" commercial.

We play this all the time. I love it! We play with fortunes, though. You can use it for MATH also! Do you do the chin with face upside down singing too? I can send you to a video of that - your kids would dig it.

Oh, oh, oh, totally forgot about the upside down face on the chin!! That's a really good one. They're gonna love it. Thx, Barb!!
