    Ok I am trying to figure out what these things were called so that I can then try to get instructions for making them. I want to introduce this to my daughter.

    Perhaps you can help.

    Back when I was a kid they would fold a piece of paper and then right numbers answers use colors. It was folded so that you would place your pointer and thumb fingers under it. Then through a series of selctions the person would move the folded paper.

    Ultimately a flap on one the papers would be lifted to reveal an answer. The way the paper was folded and previous selections made it so the answers would vary.

    I am trying to describe this but it is not that easy.

    Anyway if you know what I am talking about do you know what they were called or where I can find how to make one and the "rules" of the game.
