Fortune Cookie Birthday Gift

My son's kindergarten teacher, Karen's birthday was this past week.
(At my kid's school the kids and parents call their teachers by their first name)
 I was given the task to come up with an idea. I wanted to do something fun for her but also something from the kids. I heard she liked Mikuni, which is a Japanese Restaurant here in my town. I decided to do "chinese food" take out boxes, chop sticks and home made felt fortune cookies. (I realize this is chinese food, not Japanese creativity only goes so far!)
I thought it would be fun if each child in the class told Karen what they thought her future held. I got some fantastic fortunes! These kids are hilarious. I thought I would post their fortunes along with some pictures from the day as well as instructions on how to make these super easy fortune cookies!
Here are the fortunes:

You will play outside making silly faces

It will be sunny on your birthday and it will always be fun

You are going to be the best teacher ever

You will have a habitat of butterflies that live forever

You will teach forever and never retire and never get older

I wish you could fly like a fairy and have a magic wand so you can have more wishes!

You will be happy traveling with your family to places you have never been to see new things

    I found the tutorial for these fortune cookies here - They were actually pretty easy to make. A little time consuming when you make 50+ but luckily my mom was here visiting so I put her to work! Here what they look like before you fold them
Here is the finished product! So fun and easy!
Give them a try! You could use them for so many different things!! Enjoy!
