Spring is almost here, so I created this Free Printable Spring Joke Cootie Catcher for everyone to enjoy while being home during this quarantine! Not only do we have a ton of fun with this at home, but my husband loves taking these kinds of activities to school to entertain the students and to keep them busy. Who wouldn't love this perfect mix of an old-school cootie catcher fun and funny spring jokes?

Work your thumbs and pointer fingers into the four pockets (with the spring character images). Practice moving the cootie catcher back and forth to loosen the paper up a little.

How to play:
  1. Ask a friend to choose a spring image (bird, plant/sprout, flower, rain/cloud).
  2. Moving the flaps in and out and side to side in time with the letters, spell out the word of the image, the background color, or just spell “spring”.
  3. Open the Cootie Catcher to reveal the numbers and ask the friend to pick one. Count out the number they have chosen by moving the flaps in and out and side to side.
  4. Now they choose another number and you can share the joke under that number’s flap.
