During my daughter’s Harry Potter Birthday Party, activities took place during four Hogwarts classes – Divinations, Charms, Herbology and Potions. For Divinations, I created a Harry Potter Fortune Teller printable. Also known as a cootie catcher, this origami paper craft use spells and movie quotes to help partygoers “predict the future.” It was a hit with 10-year-old girls, and now I am sharing the free printable for your party.
More information about the other Hogwarts classes to come.
Harry Potter Fortune Teller
Do you remember making fortune-tellers like this in school? I do, and the tradition lives on because my daughter already makes them in school too. For those who haven’t made these before I made it easier to fold by leaving fold lines on the Harry Potter fortune tellers.
I wasn’t sure how to describe each of the folds in text, so I made a quick video tutorial to show you how to fold these. The video also describes how to play.
You can either watch this before the party and then teach the partygoers or you could play the video during the party and let everyone follow along. Either way, I hope the video makes it easy – and fun – for you.
How To Play With The Harry Potter Fortune Teller
After cutting out and folding the Harry Potter fortune teller, you can play by yourself or with a partner. Someone asks a yes or no question and chooses one of the Hogwarts Houses — Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw. Then giving the House crest a tap with a wand, you open and close the fortune teller while spelling the name of the House.
Four spells will be revealed, and the person who asked the question should choose a spell. You can either spell out the spell or, for simplicity, spell the color text the spell is written in. The next time four spells are revealed the questioner chooses a spell and the answer under is revealed.
The answers loosely answer yes or no questions with a movie quote.
To see this in action, watch the video above.
Harry Potter Fortune Teller Printable
I printed the Harry Potter fortune tellers on brown paper that looks like parchment paper to give it the right look for Harry Potter. You can use the same paper for party invitations and party signs too. It comes in very handy for a party like this.
Printable is for PERSONAL USE ONLY – not for resale.

Hello, my daughter is having a party this week and I’ve requested your adorable downloadable link, but haven’t seen it in my email, can you try to send it again?
This is all so amazing!! Most impressed with your décor and party planning. Kudos and Thanks for sharing!
Thank you so much!
thanks for sharing but there is no link that takes you to a drop box to download it nor a place tp put my email address. Please help.
Hi – I am sorry you had trouble, thank you for letting me know. It appears that all of my forms went down for a short time today. Everything appears to be back up and running now. Please try again.
I love the Harry Potter fortune teller! Do you do any others as I am looking to put a variety of them in wedding activity packs for kids?
Hi Becky – I have two others on my site. I have a Christmas-themed one (probably not what you need for a wedding) and a school-themed one (that might work). Here are the links:
Hooe the kids have fun!
Instead of getting people to click on the ADS just share a link to download. This greed is crazy I will never be back on this website as you are trying to fool people
Look at all the comments asking where do I click? Your correct answer should be on the ads! Cause thats where I want you to.
When you look around and go, what is wrong with this world, its partly you!
I NEVER tell anyone to click on the ads. In fact, my ads aren’t pay-per-click, so I don’t get more money when you click on them. I get paid just when you visit the page. The ONLY place people need to click is the box that says “GET The Harry Potter Fortune Teller.” Put your email address in that box, click “Send my Freebie” and the printable will be sent directly to your inbox.
There is nothing to download, nothing else to click on. There is no greed, however, this is my full-time business. I get paid to have people see the ads on my site – not to click. Visitors get a free printable that they love, I earn money that puts keeps my family going. I get thank yous from people DAILY. It is a win-win.
I am sorry you had trouble, I hope the rest of your day is better.
Thank you so much , you’re the best !💖💖💖😁

What kinds of questions did the kids ask to start? 🙂
They get to use their imaginations! They can ask anything they want! Typically, my kids stay in the Harry Potter theme, but really anything works. For example, Question: “Will I get an A on my test like Hermione?” Answer “Yer a Wizard.” As long as it is a Yes or No question, it works! Have fun.

Hello!! Thank you!! I’ve put my email address but didn’t receive anything. Do I need to do anything else?
Hi, sorry for the delayed response, but it looks like you found it after this comment and got the printable. Hope you enjoyed it!
I signed up to receive the email and I still have not received anything. It has been 3 days. Should have done something else?
Hi – I am sorry you had trouble. Emails are sent almost right away, sometimes up to 15 minutes depending on servers. But sometimes they end up in spam or “other folder.” I see that you did finally find the email and open it, so I think you are set now. Hope you enjoyed it!
Hey, I can’t find the click here part – Just the ads.. I even searched it directly?
Hi – You need to signup in the box that says, “Get The Harry Potter Fortune Teller.” It will be emailed directly to you. Have fun with it!
