Flashcards for Baby

Country Living

I've been wanting to get some flashcards for Chelsea, simple things like numbers, the letters of the alphabet, colors, and some simple words. I searched but did not find anything that fit what I was looking for and that also had a low price tag. I decided to create my own flashcards and I wanted to share them with you. Now mind you, I am not graphics or design oriented (in a technical way at least) and do not have PS so I created these as Word documents. They are not the beautiful flashcards I envisioned in my head but they will do. I also figured a 6 month old needs simplicity and not a lot of extra design and do-dads.

I cannot figure out an appropriate way to attach a Word document or get a screen grab - I feel like I should be a bit more up on technology for a 31 year-old but it is what it is! I used Google Docs to create these links and some of the font sizing and formatting was lost (for example, the font size doesn't go above 36 in Google Docs). If you know of a better way, please leave me a comment. For now I am linking to the documents below.

Alphabet and Words Flashcards

Update: I only linked to the Alphabet Flashcards. The formatting is very off for the numbers and colors flashcards docs. If you are interested in these documents, I can e-mail them to you directly.

I also found this free download for numbers 1 - 4. Much nicer than mine!

HI Karla,

These came out great. Good idea. When Shelby was small I also found some cute flash cards at the dollar store. This way if she tore them or chewed on them I was only out a dollar. It is never too early to get them interested in learning.

Karla, I applaud your innovation, and the finished cards are really impressive. You may have hit on a marketable product. But best of all you get to use them with Chelsea. Happy learning together. Hugs, Margie.
