We think cootie catchers are about 100 times better than birthday cards. See the “Next Better Thing to a Birthday Card” paper fortune teller for exhibit one.

Wouldn’t you feel special if someone folded up a cootie catcher and gave it to you on your birthday? It’s the perfect way to mark a milestone birthday like the big 3-0 with something a little out of the ordinary.

Here at The Daily Cootie Catcher, we could only wish to be so young (and thin!) again. But perhaps you’re not quite there yet. Or maybe a friend or family member is about to hit 30.

If so, have some fun with this “So You’re Turning 30″ paper fortune teller.

Download this PDF, print, fold and skip the boring birthday card.
