A printable paper fortune teller is a fun and creative way to show that special someone how you feel on Valentine’s Day.

Third grade hasn’t changed much in the 30-some years since I was a grade schooler. Kids still laugh at the same silly jokes and play the same little games we used to play during recess.

For example, my son and his friends are obsessed with making paper fortune tellers — what we used to call cootie catchers.

So, I thought it would be fun to make some printable versions for Valentine’s Day.

These free printable Valentine cards can be folded into a cootie catcher paper fortune teller. Your Valentine will enjoy reading all the sweet messages inside the cootie catcher card.

In fact, there’s not a mention of Valentine’s Day at all on the boy version. Just lots of “punny” punchlines to the joke, “I really mustache you a question.”
