Beware of the wand!

At my daughter's Halloween Ball I will be dressing up as a fortune teller and I'm stuck on ideas for fortunes. These girls will be in the 8-11 age range, so I need fortunes that are age appropriate. I thought of predictions ivolving their "secret crush" or making an "A" on a test in the near future, etc., but I'm stumped on what else to "predict". Any suggestions? I even thought of cheating a bit and getting a smidgeon of insider scoop from the girl's parents to make the fortunes really hit home. What sorts of things do your kiddos find important?

I needed a bunch of fortunes once, too. I went through a free online horoscope (the one I used was on yahoo, but I'm sure there's plenty more out there.) Basically for each zodiac sign I could click through about a month and got a ton of "fortunes". Then I weeded out ones I didn't like and changed some stuff to make them more appropriate for my venue.

If you are writing them down:

you can always do a scavenger hunt, and give each child clues to finding their fortune

you can write the fortunes down backwards so children have to use a mirror to read them,

you can use disappearing ink

you can write the fortunes in code, and create a code key that kids can use to decode them

you can play a game by placing the fortunes in boxes and giving each child an opportunity to select a box from the pile, or steal someone elses fortune.

Don't forget to take pics of kids reading their fortunes, or a large group pic of the kids holding their fortunes

Also get some magic 8 balls so kids can ask some yes or no questions too.

Good Luck!

Here are a few I came up with. I hope they help. Sounds like a fun time.

Someone special is thinking about you
Be careful what you say behind a friend's back
A good deed will soon be repaid
Injuries from harsh words should soon be repaired
A day of fun is around the corner
An upcoming school assignment will prove harder than you expected
When things look darkest have faith. They will soon brighten again.
You will receive an unexpected surprise.
A phone call will bring good news.
An item lost will soon be found, in a very unusual place.
Look to a trusted adult for the advice you are seeking.
Do not put your faith in the advice of strangers.
Look inside yourself first for the acceptance you so much desire.
Do not be in a hurry to grow older, only wiser.
If you look for happiness in the darkness, do not be surprised that you cannot see it.
Friendship is like a garden. It needs a lot of tending. And truly good friends are hard to find. Tend to them well.

I realize that you propably don't want anything that could be misinterpreted as real, but could you possible use a deck of witch cards on the table? I saw a link to them somewhere. I am not into Ouija Boards or anything like that, but would like a deck of these witch cards for a witch fortune teller table I am having. Also, do you have a crystal ball? You can make a good one out of the round globes that go on ceiling fans. Goodwill should have plenty. Just make a base for it or find a metal stand or pretty candle plate. The frosted white globes are the best. You can then add glow sticks inside the ball for a nice effect. Or as someone posted a few days ago, the battery operated small lights would be good, too.

I am going to be a fortune teller at our Boo Bash. I found the perfect skirt at a thrift store and some great scarves. I have to find a blouse.
