I always thought cootie catcher's looked like clovers, so what more perfect craft to make with kids for St Paddy's Day then a fun Cootie Catcher?! 

We include dares like "Dance Like a Leprechaun", "Kiss Me, I'm Irish" and "Tell a Limerick or Irish Joke" for clean family fun, but I guess you could totally make them into more 'adult' versions with 'Guinness drinking' dares perhaps?! ;)

I remember these when I was a kid and the amount of fun that could be had with a piece of paper! Well, let me tell you, the appeal of cootie catchers transcends time - My kids gave up computer games for an afternoon to play with these! :)

When making them I also wondered why the call it Cootie Catcher, so good old Wikipedia provided the answer: "...being used to tell fortunes, these shapes may be used as a pincer to play-act catching insects such as lice, hence the "cootie catcher" name." :)
