Make your own toddler alphabet flash cards

Creat you own jumbo alphabet flash cards for your toddlers or preschoolers with items from the dollar store!


All you need is a box of the alphabet cards and a pack of the die cut letters which you can get for a dollar each at the dollar store.

You’ll be putting a card and a letter on a piece of cardstock ( or construction paper), half of an 8/12 by 11 sheet of paper.

Start with a letter from the cards and find the matching letter in the die-cut pack. Lay it out like this:


Now all you will do is cover the jumbo cards with some contact paper so that they will last longer and you can take them with you on trips.

Cut a strip of contact paper a little wider than the card, you’ll want to be able to leave a little trim around the sides to make it soft on the hands. Then lay the cardstock down and use a little glue stick to stick the card and letter onto the cardstock. This will help to prevent it from moving while you cover it with contact paper.20120509-093423.jpg


 Then fold the card over onto the other half of the contact paper so that it is sealed in. Trim around the edges so that you leave a small amount ( about 1/4 inch) around the edges. This will keep it soft on the little fingers.


Make the whole alphabet and take a few with you to the grocery store, or in the car. Ask your child to find a letter in the stack or to find the card with the apple on it. Then have your child trace the big letter with her finger.

  11. A piece of cake by Cupcake Brown A truly amazing story of a young girls horifric childhood after finding her mother dead one morning the strength of the human spirit is incredible. Very few people have been to the lowest depths life has to throw at us, even fewer come through the other side and even fewer still have a happy outcome. It will stay with you for a long long time.Today I’m Alice by Alice Jaimeson is another must read . another true story of a woman with multiple personality disorder. She develops numerous alters and loses track of time when they take over. She often finds herself in hospital after trying to commit suicide although she has no recollection of doing it. She is studying for her PHD when it all starts to fall apart. Out of all the personalities inside her head she struggles to understand who they are, why no-one else hears them and which one is truly her. Ultimately she has to figure out how to become normal’. This is a remarkable story not only because of how it is written but because it is a true story, a true medical issue which very few people suffer from and those who do are often not in a position to write about what its really like.I have loads on my to read’ shelf on goodreads, I always seem to find the more I read the longer my to read’ list gets!
