Chatterbox

by Vanessa M (follow)
WARNING: these chatterboxes can become an obsession.

To play, one person offers another the closed chatterbox. The second person chooses a colour, and the first person opens up alternating options (numbers and then words) for each letter in the colour. The other person makes a choice from what it lands on and the process is repeated.

This time when the options are offered up, the flap of the number/word selected is lifted up and what's below is read out. This is where you'll have written jokes, predictions, dares or anything else you can come up with.

Time: 7 minutes
Age: 5-10's, Over 10's
Level: Easy

Materials
Paper
Pencils
Scissors



Method
If you're not using a square piece of paper fold one corner across to the other side to create a large triangle.



Trim the excess paper and open it up again so that you now have a square.

Fold one of the other corners diagonally like the first, so that the square ends up with two creases forming a cross when it's opened again.



Fold all corners in towards the middle so that the tips meet in the centre.



Turn the square over, so that the flaps you just created are facing down, and fold the corners inwards again.





Colour the four square flaps you have now created on the other side.



Turn the square over and write numbers or words on the triangle on triangles, with opposite flaps matching.

Beneath each flap, write your final jokes, dares or whatever else you have chosen. I chose to write answers similar to the Magic 8 Ball (so the person choosing has to ask a yes/no question before you begin).



Insert your fingers into the flaps under the coloured squares so that the other side closes up.
