Remember making these in school? Now you can teach your child how to fold a classic cootie catcher! Print out these instructions and the templates, grab some scissors, and you’re ready to go!

Master Cootie Catchers can use any piece of square paper to make their own. Fold it first, then challenge your child to come up with labels for each of the sections. Open-ended creativity like this will challenge them to make choices and think sequentially as one flap needs to lead to the next.
