The origami fortune teller is popular among children because they get to write in their own creative fortunes. This is how you play. Have a friend pick a number from one to ten, then (horizontally, then vertically) open and close the fortune teller as you count to the number. Stop when you reach the number. Now ask your friend to pick a color. Then open the flap of that color and read the fortune underneath..
