So one of my 6 year old classmates had this little square of paper that had answers/colors to questions he asked to his friends in the playground. I don't know how else to describe it, but apparently it's traditional and lots of people used to play it. Does anyone has any idea of the name of the game that I'm trying to describe? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: If I'm able to find the name of the game, I'll be able to google it and maybe get instructions.<br><br>
It's basically finding out how to fold paper to form that game? A little square that you're able to unfold partly to find out different answers. Do I make any sense? My DH has made hats, airplanes, little boats out of a piece of paper, and he says he played the game I'm describing as a child, but he doens't know how to fold the paper into that game, and doesn't know the name of the game either. Any help??? My 6 yr old is dying to play with us <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
TIA!!<br><br>

Same here, and they'd have the names of boys in our class under the flaps. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
