Fortune Teller Craft Activity! #StreamTeam @Netflix #Ad



    Although my family and I definitely agree on the fact that we all love Netflix, we sometimes cannot agree on what we should watch next as a family.  We love each other dearly but we have huge differences when it comes to our taste in movies and shows.  Our weekly debates can go from pleasant disagreements to heated debates so we have been looking to find ways to compromise so we can all enjoy what we like to watch.

    Since they know getting a collective answer can be easier said than done, Netflix has created an iconic fortune teller to help your family decide what to watch next. Even better, create your own!

Fortune Teller Craft Activity

How to play:

  1. Print out the Fortune Teller and cut (with help!) along the dotted line.
  2. Label the outermost triangles 1-8 and add in different genres for each.
  3. Then on the inner triangles, fill in your favorite show or movie currently streaming on Netflix that corresponds to each genre.
  4. Fold & play!

  1. This is such a fun way to choose what movie/show you’re gonna watch next. I’m sure the kids will love it too since its sort of a game for them 🙂

  2. It’s been a while since we’ve watched Netflix. Lately I’ve been wondering why I’m still paying for it but my daughter said she still watches so we’re keeping it. I will have to tell my youngest that Danger Mouse is available. I don’t think he knows.

  3. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says

    We used to make those when we were kids. We called it MASH and it stood for mansion, apartment, shack or house 🙂

  4. Such a darling idea and how fun! There’s just the two of us now, so this isn’t an issue. I might use your idea for another thought…I’ll be sure to link back to you if I do!

  5. We all have similar tastes, so picking something is usually rather easy. Well, unless they pick a kid’s show, then I leave the room.

  6. We are Netflix fans over here! Love this clever idea to keep the peace between my 4 kiddos!

  7. This is too fun! I’m going to make this for my kids to use when they can’t agree on what to watch. And I’m going to send it to my sister as well 😉

  8. Yes! The never-ending battle on what are we watching on Netflix tonight? Does this mean it’s over? LOL! You mean I don’t have to hear whining from the kiddos and the crybaby hubby? Seriously though, I’m really excited about the Fortune Teller! Thanks so much for the free cutout! 🙂

  9. I would never have thought to do this, but how fun! I remember making these all the time as a kid 🙂

  10. Since my kids have gotten older, I now often make fortune-tellers for kids on planes, trains, etc. who are making their mommies crazy. I almost always have a pad of paper in my purse when I travel, so I pull out a sheet, square it up, and fold one quick. Then I fill it in age-appropriately and hand it off. It takes me less than five minutes, and usually kids are so surprised by a stranger giving them a gift (with mom or dad’s permission of course) that it keeps them busy for at least 10 minutes, which is enough to get a breather for a parent. It’s a good trick to have up your sleeve.

  11. That looks so fun! We always have such a hard time deciding what to watch.

  12. This is a fun way to pick something. Our daughter always picks the movie on movie night… my husband and I would just argue about it. Lol. I remember playing with these in like middle school!

  13. What a great way to make the decision about which movie. I used to love these things when I was a girl in school, we called them cootie catchers. Ha.

  14. The fortune teller brings back so many memories from childhood. Luckily I have control over my own Netflix decisions so I can pick what I want to watch. Otherwise, the fortune teller would be needed.

  15. My kids would have an absolute blast with this. Hey, it might solve some of those fights about what they are going to watch!

  16. We usually just take turns, it has been ongoing for a few years now and so far so good.

  17. This is a great idea! Sometimes its so hard to pick between all my favorite shows. Plus, I totally remember using those fortune tellers in grade school. 🙂 So fun!

  18. My 4 year old would love this! I’m going to print it out for them to use next time we go out to eat! Great idea!

  19. I used to fold that before but I didn’t know the right term for it was ‘fortune teller’. How cool! Thanks for rekindling my memory with your post!

  20. This is a fun way for the family to pick what movie to watch. We are always split on an action movie and the girls want a romantic comedy. Netflix is awesome too!

  21. What a fun idea. I think this was called a cootie (sp?) catcher when I was young. haha

  22. I used to make those growing up! SO much fun! I am trying to catch up on some shows that I missed the last season of and just came onto Netflix – mainly Lost Girl.

  23. Oh this is so fun! Now I know how to make family movie night work without the whole “but I want to watch this!” argument, lol!

  24. Luckily I don’t have to share my Netflix but using a fortune teller is a great way of being fair when it comes to choosing something to watch! I love to watch comedy on Netflix.

  25. This is such a cute idea! I love how something so simple can make choosing a movie or show to watch fun.

  26. CourtneyLynne says

    Omg what a cute and fun idea!!!! My daughter would love this!!

  27. I haven’t seen one of those fortune tellers in I don’t want to tell you how long! They were so much fun!! What a great idea to decide in which Netflix show–or at least the genre to watch when no one can agree.
