Well known to all the ladies who were in Jr. High in the late 80s and early 90s... Mansion, Apartment, Shack, House. I REMEMBER THIS!!!!
There are a lot of old school random things I have seen on pinterest but got to say, this one really made me smile. I totally forgot about it and wonder if kids still do this? I haven' seen my middle schoolers do it. I will need to remember this again in about 6 years to teach Gracie :) silly and kind of stupid but fun!
The rules to play MASH a.k.a. how kids in the 90s predicted the future.
Wow, I remember doing this as a kid...
Remember this MASH game? (Mansion, Apartment, Shack, or House) 1. Write down five each of the following: names, types of cars, colors, number of children, places, and careers. 2. Then, one person starts drawing a spiral on a piece of paper and the person whose fortune is being told tells her when to stop. Then, you count across the spiral top to bottom to get the magic number for the game. 3. Alright, now all you do is count through your lists of items AND the letters M-A-S-H, eliminating the ones that you land on with your magic number. The last one left in each group is your winner. Keep counting through until you have only your last choice in each category left - et viola - your future.

80s Fortune Telling - lol i remember doing this all the time, although now, i don't think i could remember how to fold this if my life depended on it :P
Picked ours up for 25-50 cents at a yard sale, back in the day. So many hours of fun, by yourself or with your siblings! Best game!!
Jacks - my mom played "jacks" and taught me how to play... in the Fifties. That and Tiddly Winks.
this was the best pleasure given with the heat of the summer and the luxury of owning a fan
Yes I used these to basically make my hair look like I had stuck my finder in an electrical socket!
