Hi

It is called "Cootie Catchers"Here are the directions and instructions

Playing with Cootie Catcher

You can play your own version of Cootie Catcher, or this version.

Choose a color then close-and-open the Cootie Catcher once for each letter in your friend's name, leaving it open at the end so that you see four numbers inside.

Second, choose one of the four numbers, and close-and-open the Cootie Catcher that many times, again ending with it open.

Last, choose one of the four numbers, and lift.


Directions to make:

Cut out a cootie catcher.

Fold two opposite diagonal corners together, then open back up.

Fold the other two opposite corners together, then open back up.

You should have folded lines like this. The lines cross at the center of the paper.

Turn paper printed side down. Fold all four corners to the center of the paper.

Flip your paper over.

Again, fold all four corners to the center of the paper.

Fold any two sides together. Make sure the numbers are in the inside.

Slide your thumbs and fingers under the four flaps.

I hope this helps and is what you are looking for.
