Treats Without the Sweets {FREEBIE}

Hey Friends! It's Theresa from True Life I'm a Teacher!

If you're joining us for the first time...WELCOME! For the month of February we are sharing "Sweet Treats" which involve lots of freebies just for YOU!

Now that we have the pleasantries out of the way...let's get on with the good stuff!!!

Since Valentine's Day falls on a Sunday this year, many classes are exchanging Valentines on Friday, which is just two days away! Yikes! If you haven't made it to the store (#targetrun), I've got you covered. All you need is your printer!

My sweet seconds will be trading cards, goodies, treats, and sweets, but I'm taking a different approach. That is, I'm NOT giving my kiddos candy, but they are going to LOVE {pun intended} the treat I have for them.
Lately, my darlings have been OBSESSED with "fortune tellers" - although, when I was in school we called them "cootie catchers." Regardless of what you call them, they are apparently all the rage right now, and my May drawer - you MAY get it back, you MAY NOT - is filling up with confiscated fortune tellers to prove it.

So, I'm actually going to GIVE my students EACH a fortune teller themed with hearts, flowers, and sweet sentiments.
Fortune tellers are super easy to fold together, and honestly, the folding is part of what makes them so fun! In case you've never made one, or your kiddos have never made one, start by cutting around the edge of fortune need to start with a square.
Once you've have a square, here's how your fold it:

First, place the square face up, and fold in half. Unfold. Then fold in half again, so that you have created an X.
Next, with the printed side still face down, fold the corners to the center of the paper.
Next, flip the paper over so that the folds/flaps you just made are face down. Now, fold in the corners again, just like you did in picture 4.
Once again, flip the paper over so that the folds/flaps are face down. Fold the paper in half (both vertically and horizontally). 
Slide your thumbs and index fingers under the flaps. Voila...Fortune Teller!
You can grab your Valentine's Day fortune teller freebie HERE (or by clicking the picture below)! I included the fortune teller you see in the pictures, as well as one in which you could personalize with your own sweet sentiments.
Be sure to check back each day of February for other sweet treats!
