The paper fortune teller was like secret female knowledge at school when I was a kid, a closely guarded secret the the boys must never learn. So a few weeks ago I decided to free that knowledge for boys everywhere, go boys!
My version is slightly different, rather than telling your fortune it suggests new skills, activities or experiences you might like. I present: The Experi-o-matic™. Download it below, it comes with full instructions and if you're still confused there's a video below showing how to construct it.
To make it:
- Cut along the black borders so that it makes a square.
- Fold the square in half both ways to crease it.
- Place it with the print side down and fold all four corners in to the middle. The squares with the four colour words should be touching.
- Turn it over and fold all four corners in again, to make a smaller square. You should have all eight number squares visible.
- Fold it in half both ways to crease it.
- Turn it over again and put your fingers under the flaps with the colour words on them.
- Choose a colour. Spell out this colour while moving your fingers back and forth to open it in each direction.
- Choose a number that’s visible. Count to that number moving your fingers back and forth again.
- Choose another number that’s visible, then count to that number too.
- Choose a question and say the answer out loud.
- Open the flap to reveal your new experience!

What's this about?
Hi I'm Mat and I'm addicted to new hobbies. I used to think this was a bad thing but now I'm embracing it.
Writing them all up in this blog encourages me to finish projects, and helps me keep track of which ones I've tried.
