Shark & Owl "Cootie Catchers"/"Fortune Telers"

These are the 
#5 & 6 Vidcasts of the Shark & Owl "Cootie Catcher"/"Fortune Teler"
(in the UK & USA)


A 2019 Catch-up post



Thursday 21st February 2019


"I hope you find the Step-by-Step useful and that your Children and/or Grandchildren find it enjoyable to create."


If you're having problems viewing try this link - 

Step 1 : I started by making a "Shark!" - you can make these "Cootie Catchers"/"Fortune Telers", with any kind of paper but, I found using the "Square Origami Paper" produced a "Shark that was a TAD-Small. I'd suggest a square, cut from an A4 Sheet of paper 

Step 2 : Create the "Shark Template" Based on the same pattern as the template to create a "Tigger" 

TEMPLATE IMAGE




Step 3 : Colour the template and once done, cut out the square with the shark design, as well as the fins that come with it.

Step 4 : Fold the Template

a) Once printed cut out the square with the shark design, as well as the fins that come with it.

b) First fold the square paper in half to make a crease. Make sure the fold is crisp – & neat, it will make it easier to fold this origami. Unfold.

c) Rotate the paper and fold again across the middle. Crease and unfold.
Flip the paper so that the white side is facing you (the design should be facing the table)

d) Fold all 4 corners towards the middle

e) Flip the paper again – have the white side facing you again and the design facing the table.

f) Fold the 4 corners towards the middle again. Again, make sure the folds are crisp

g) Fold the square shape in half to get the long rectangle (the side with the teeth will stay inside).

h) Push your fingers into the pockets (square pockets) and push the flaps up to open up the "Cootie Catchers"/"Fortune Teler".

NOTE: "You might need to wiggle your fingers a little bit to make the "Cootie Catchers"/"Fortune Teler" form"

i) When you’ve folded your adorable, snappy shark, all there’s left to do is to add the fins. Users can, if they wish, glue together the head and body so that only the shark’s mouth opens.



If you have a go at creating your own Shark "Cootie Catcher"/"Fortune Teler", do share your feedback, positive and/or negative, in the comments. 

It would also be nice to see what your children and/or Grandchildren thought about creating their own Shark "Cootie Catcher"/"Fortune Teler"

SECOND Option - an "OWL Cootie Catcher"/"Fortune Teler" (or any other Bird)

The instructions for the "OWL Cootie Catcher"/"Fortune Teler" is exactly the same as for the Tigger and/or Shark. The only difference, the initial template.



ENJOY!

Thank You!

I hope you like the Nursery Rhyme  and your Children and/or Grandchildren find it enjoyable to colour their drawings using "Pigment" - http://pixiteapps.com/pigment/apple-ipad-pro-pencil.html -  on their iPad or iPhone.

"Pigment" App

Step 2 : Upload the picture(s) you want to colour

Step 3 : Colour the pictures

Step 4 : Save the coloured Pictures

Step 5 : Optional: Create a Vidcast using the coloured pictures... I use the "Clips App" on my iPad - https://www.apple.com/uk/clips/ - it's a nice easy tool to create vidcasts 

Step 6 : Watch Apple's Clips app: a step-by-step guide at https://www.youtube.com/embed/lI8SWCUWMDY to find out how to create a vidcast.

Obviously you can do whatever you wish with the coloured pictures.

I hope you like the egg and your Children and/or Grandchildren find it enjoyable to create.

Step 1 : Make the egg with folds at the top and bottom. Make sure you leave an open space for the "lolly stock" to pass through in the bottom of the egg.

Step 2 : Colour the egg

Step 3 : Draw/colour/cut out the baby dinosaur (or what ever you want in the egg).

Step 4 : Stick the baby dinosaur (or what ever you've made) on the stick

Step 5 : Insert the stick through the gap you left in Step 1 and that's it.

Obviously the baby dinosaur (or what ever you've made) on the stick can be played with separately 

If you have a go at creating your own Dinosaur Egg, do share your feedback, positive and/or negative, in the comments. 

It would also be nice to see what your children and/or Grandchildren thought about creating a Dinosaur Egg as well!

Thank You!
