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!
