Thanks to Brett Carter for this lovely friendship cootie catcher design.
Teacher Lisa Emrich has created this eyecatching design to help her class with their vocabulary review and has kindly agreed to share it with you.
Here’s my take on a popular cootie catcher theme – the wedding. I’m imagining guests whiling away the time between the buffet and the first dance with these, hence the challenges inside! You can either download a copy to print as it is, or download the Powerpoint version and personalise and edit it to your heart’s content.
Don’t forget you can create your own cootie catchers from scratch by using my blank PowerPoint template.
Tracy Bednarick, a 6th Grade Teacher, used my blank cootie catcher template to make this impressive maths teaching aid, and has kindly agreed to share it on the site.
Thanks very much to Marcie for sending in an example of how she’s been using the blank cootie catcher template and adapting it to teach children about Passover.
Marcie says, “We used it as a craft in a Saturday morning service. It’s a great craft for the Sabbath because you’re not suppposed to cut or color. We cut them out before we went and everybody just had to fold them and play. They’re a fun way to get a discussion going about Passover, as you’ll see by the questions I wrote.”
It’s been a long while since I’ve added anything new, so I thought it was time I did something I’d been thinking of for a while – a cootie catcher with a party theme. Forfeits can be added if anyone chickens out! Don’t forget you can create your own cootie catchers by using my PowerPoint template. Or download this one and enjoy the party!
How to play Party Challenge
Ask the guest to choose hat, balloon, present or cake. Spell out the word with the cootie catcher, then ask them to pick a number. Count out the number and ask them to pick again. Read out the first part of the challenge which is on the number, then unfold to reveal the second part of the challenge.
