Some fun printable cootie catchers include a version with silly dares, a fortune teller with a Dr. Seuss theme and Prunella's cootie catcher, which is based on the PBS cartoon, "Arthur." A cootie catcher, or fortune teller, is a childhood game that is made by folding a piece of paper and labeling it with colors, numbers, words or images. Game play varies depending on the cootie catcher and the individuals playing with it.
About Home offers several printable cootie catchers, including one that is labeled with colored starbursts, numbers and funny dares. Players perform silly actions, such as acting like a monkey or drawing a picture with their eyes closed, making it a fun game for parties and sleepovers. The printable is available in JPG format.
The Dr. Seuss cootie catcher by the Country Chic Cottage is available as a PowerPoint file through Google Slides. This fortune teller features choices such as one fish, two fish, red fish or blue fish, and it opens to reveal quotes from notable Dr. Seuss titles. Folding instructions are included at the bottom of the page.
