Paper Friendship Fortune Cookies
Kids love to pass notes and share fun sentiments with friends. Friendship pens and friendship bracelets are a great way to share a special bond, so how about combining the two with these friendship fortune cookies? They are easy to make, you can use any colors you like, and they are great for both boys and girls. But remember, no passing notes in class!
You will need:
Patterned card stock or sturdy scrapbook paper
Cut paper into circles about 3 1/2″ in diameter.
Use a software program, such as Word, to print out fun phrases for your kids notes. If you prefer, have them handwrite them to make them even more personal.
Cut your notes into strips.
Place a glue dot at the top of the circle.
Fold the circle and secure with the glue dot.
Slip your note inside the folded circle. Don’t glue it in, just tuck it inside, far enough that the end of the note passes the middle of the circle.
Insert your thumb and forefinger into the ends of the folded circle and bring your fingers together to fold it into a fortune cookie shape. Secure with a glue dot.
There, wasn’t that fun? 🙂
