When I Grow Up... Fortune Teller Fun with Preschoolers!

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:
Fun Picture Books About Jobs and Occupations!
- What do People Do All Day?
- Jobs People Do
- The Berenstain Bears: When I grow Up
- LMNO Peas
- Clothesline Clues to Jobs People Do
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 folded the paper in half.
And then we folded it in half again.
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.
Then, we folded it in half.
And put out fingers inside to make our fortune teller!
Choose a number...
and then choose another number...
and then choose another number to reveal what you'll be when you grow up.
(I got to be a dad. Hmm... close enough, I suppose.)
Oh! And if you like making fortune tellers, you could also try this Origami Fortune Tellers Book or Mini Fortune Tellers Tin!
