When I grow up... Fortune Teller Fun with Preschoolers! (And a book list)

Did you ever fold fortune tellers as a kid?  With no set nap times and a new baby, I've been trying to find easy ways to have fun with my older son.  Recently I introduced him to fortune tellers and he totally dug them!  We made them to predict what he would be when he grew up.   He doodled the different jobs that he'd like to do and then we colored and folded the fortune tellers together!

As with most of our preschool crafts, my son and I started out by reading picture books.  This time we looked through books that talked about different occupations that adults can have.   Some of our favorite books are below:

Then, I doodled him a fortune teller.  (You could fold one first and then have your child draw in the different occupations.  But if you wanted to print out the fortune teller that we used, click here!)

Here are some of the jobs that my son wanted to have.... (my favorite is elf... how cute is that?)

We folded and tore the paper so that it would become a square.

Then, we opened up the paper.  Then, we folded in all the corners so they met in the middle.

Then, we flipped it around.  Then, we folded all the corners to the center again.
