Origami Game
 
This origami game, which is a paper-folding activity, is based on a decades old children’s game know as the “fortune teller”.  Using only a sheet of paper, youth will follow the instructions to fold up a piece of paper into an object that is then used to ask and answer questions relating to abuse.
