Do you remember taking out a piece of notebook paper back when you were in school and folding it into a fortune-teller? We had so much fun making them and coming up with fortunes and misfortunes. So many hours of laughter!
How many times did the teacher take them away? Did your parents get called?
I have created three camping-themed origami tellers that can be printed for your next camping trip. One is blank for fortunes to be written on. The other ones are camping joke tellers.
