Fortune Tellers, Cootie Catchers, or Salt Cellars?
Did you ever make paper fortune tellers (sometimes called cootie catchers or salt cellars) as a child? I remember making the fun folded paper game in elementary school
My friends and I would fold and decorate sheets of notebook paper into fortune tellers to “predict” our adult lives. We would fill the flaps of the games with answers to silly questions about who we would marry or our future careers.
It was the perfect entertainment for snowy indoor recess days!
I was reintroduced to fortune tellers when my kids hit elementary school and was amazed at their continued popularity.
I mean, really…. how can a sheet of paper compete with high-tech toys?
Silly Jokes for Kids
When my kids were in elementary school they could not get enough of silly joke telling. They loved entertaining their grandparents with new jokes and groaned with laughter whenever they heard a terrible punchline.
The memories of those silly evenings full of laughter still bring a smile to my face!
This winter I decided to combine my love of goofy jokes and fortune tellers to bring you holiday joke tellers! This simple Hanukkah craft is filled with eight (8) silly Hanukkah jokes that kids love:
- What’s the difference between Hanukkah and a dragon? One lasts for eight nights the other sometimes ate knights
- Why was the broom late for work after the Hanukkah party? It over-swept.
- How much Hanukkah gelt did the little skunk get? One scent.
- What do you call the speck that falls into the latke pan? An unidentified frying object.
- What’s the best thing to put into sufganiyot? Your teeth!
- What did the cook say when he was asked if the latkes would be long? No, they’ll be round.
- What did the car say to the dreidel? Want to go for a spin?
