Hey friends! Kira here! And I am back with a little “off the page” project today: alphabet flashcards!
Many of you probably don’t know but my youngest son (2.5 years old) has a speech delay. We have speech therapy once a week. And he can repeat most anything you say…but he fights you sooooo hard on it. The other day I was working with my four year old on writing the alphabet, and out of nowhere my youngest starts going, “A, B, C, D…” and I was like, where in the heck did this come from?! Lol.
So I thought it was time to introduce some flashcards to our daily routine.
I started by cutting some smooth white cardstock down to 3″x4″. Then using the Block Party Alpha Outline, I stamped each letter on a single card. Since my baby is a little delayed, I wasn’t going to worry about lowercase letters, so the Block Party Alpha was perfect here.
Then the fun part! I wrote all of the letters vertically down a piece of paper, then started flipping through my stamps. Once I saw a stamp I wanted to use for a letter, I’d write it down.
Here’s my list:
A: apple (from the This Stamp is Bananas set)
B: bird (from the Swanderful set)
C: Cat (from the Purr Babies set)
D: Dog (from Bork)
E: Egg (from Eggstra)
F: Flower (from Chin up Buttercup)
G: Guitar (from The One With All the Stamps)
H: Hat (from Stars Hallow)
I: Idea (from Iconic)
J: Jungle (Frond of You)
K: Kiss (from Modern Romance)
L: Love (from Blended)
M: Music/Microphone (from Pitch, Please)
N: Night (from Majestic AF)
O: Octopus (pulled a stamp from my stash)
P: Planet (from Iconic)
Q: Question (from Block Party Alpha Outline)
R: Red Solo Cup (from Pitch, Please)
S: Snowflake (from Happy Holla Days)
T: Tree (from Fir Real)
U: Unicorn (from Majestic AF)
V: Venti (from Mug Life)
W: Wand (from Iconic)
Y: Yellow (from Between the Lines)
Z: Zebra (from Snarks and Recreation)
Some of them were stamped in colored ink. But some I added color with my Copics, with very basic coloring
Aren’t these fun?! My kids have already been enjoying them so I hope it starts helping with my youngest’s alphabet soon! Thanks so much for stopping by!
