Now that my son is almost 2 I figured it was time to for him to really start learning something. I know there are a ton of different apps for phones and tablets out there that help your kid learn, but I remember growing up there was nothing like a good flash card. I also thought that hey, Jack is only 2 and he is going to destroy these so it would be best if I didn’t invest a ton of money into flash cards so let’s make them. Plus when he gets bored with these we can always make more.
Here is what you will need:
- 3×5 index cards (or any size you want really)
- Clear Contact Paper
Start by writing/drawing whatever you want on the cards. The object on the front and what it is on the back
I did a group of Colors, Shapes and Objects.
For the Objects I raided my sticker collection and what I didn’t have I printed using Google images and pasted them onto the card.
once you have all of your cards set it’s time to start Laminating. Clear contact paper is perfect for this because it’s less expensive. It’s under $10 for an entire roll that will last a while and you don’t need any machines.
Cut a decent sized sheet from the roll and with the backing up pull it back to expose the sticky side up.
Get enough up so that you can put your first card down.
Cut them apart and then repeat the same steps as above for the other side of the card.
Once completed I had 26 learning cards for Under $1
