Games for Toddlers: Free Flash Cards
Hi Smart School House Readers!!
I am so excited to be here today. I wanted to share with you a little something I have been working on! I’m not sure if it’s the former teacher in me but I get so excited when it comes to flashcards. Weird right?! I also have the same problem around back to school time but I’ll save that story for another time. I needed some cute fairly large number cards for my little guy to work with. So with my new found love of Illustrator I set out to make something to grab his attention.
If you would like to get your hands on these number cards you can download them here:
Simply print them out on card stock. I recommend card stock just to give it some extra thickness. I would also suggest laminating them for durability. I punched a hole at the top and added a ring to keep them all together.
These cards print out at 5 x 7 or if you would like to go bigger you can opt to print a full page.
At 5 x 7 they are the perfect size for little hands and for placing objects on the cards.
There are so many ways to play with these cards.
My little guy loves to place objects on the card that matches up with the number. We use mostly cars but you can use blocks or any other small item to count.
We also try to match up the color on the car. So for example the cars above are yellow so he will go find 4 yellow hot wheels to put on the card. Learning colors and numbers in one game!
You can also print out two sets of flash cards so you can play a memory matching game. Just flip the cards over and try to match the numbers.
However way you play the important thing is to have fun!
Welp Tori, I am honest to goodness obsessed with your flash cards!! You have inspired and motivated me to learn how to use Illustrator to make flash cards and other games for toddlers! Thank you SO much for sharing this wonderful teaching activity with us today.
