Paper Fortune Cookies

What You Need:

  • Origami paper
  • Circle template (or small lid, 4" circumference)
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun
  • White paper (cut in strips to 2.5" x .25")
  • Pen

What You Do:

  1. Have your child draw a circle on a sheet of origami paper and cut it out.
  2. Then, have him curve the top of the circle to touch the bottom of the circle, without folding the circle in half. Gently press the middle of the circle to make a small crease.
  3. Holding where the edges of the circle meets, use the other hand to press and indentation while folding the edges of the paper towards one another.
  4. Put a dot of hot glue on the inside of one side of the folded edge, close to the small crease. Then press the two sides together to form a cookie shape.
  5. Have him write a fortune on a sheet of paper and gently slide it into the folded cookie.

Helpful Hint: Practice makes perfect. This is a challenging fold and may take a few tries to get the paper folds to cooperate. Once your kid gets the hang of it, make a bunch of them to give to friends and family!
