Barb Kish, an AOL Den Leader from Pack 6410 in Woodstock, GA sent in this template and instructions for making a cootie catcher to help Cub Scouts learn the history of the US flag:
I wanted a fun way to teach my AOL scouts Building a Better World #1 ( Explain the history of the United States flag.) by having them play with a Cootie Catcher, but all I could find were ones you had to pay for. As you know we have very little money in scouts so I made my own.
A cootie catcher, also called a fortune teller, is an orgami construct which can be used to ask and answer questions. Barb sent me the template and instructions below for making the cootie catcher. Just print it out and follow the directions she provided. Thanks Barb!
