Hands up who remembers chatterboxes from their childhood? Well my kids came home from school this week asking me to make them a chatterbox and I had to look up how to make them as it’s been awhile so I thought I’d share.

They are so simple to make, all you need is a piece of A4 paper and some scissors.

Watch the YouTube video for easy to follow visual instructions:

Did you used to make chatterboxes?

  • Great fun as kids with these. Lots of laughs


  • Is that what they are called! Fun memories of these.


  • I remember making these when I went to school.


  • My daughter got a chatterbox from her friend and she loves it!


  • Oh yes, our kids still make them. I wouldn’t think we need instructions to make them, lol !


  • Yes, I remember these! Fun times. I didn’t realise they were called chatterboxes though. Go figure.


  • We love these. Whilst we don’t make them now (my son’s 15), we’ve made many of these in the past. Great fun.


  • Oh i loved these as a kid! Ive been wanting to make them with my girls. My eldest would get a big kick out of it.


  • These were such fun as a child – do children still like them? They certainly have no patience with what we used to call ‘Cat’s cradle’.


  • my god, I don’t need to make one. I have a live one!! :)


  • Oh yes, I know how to make them. And I used to make them when I was a child too. A timeless game! :-)


  • I still make these for my niece. They are so much fun!


  • I remember these. We used to have lots of fun making them. Thanks for the instructions.


  • Use to love making these as a kid. Love You Tube tutorials.

    • Tutorials are so helpful and educational.


  • I played with chatterboxes over 40 years ago and so did my daughter when she was a little younger.
