Toddler Activities - Flash Cards

Since Little Man has been doing such an awesome job with associating words with pictures (hearing a word and knowing which picture it is) The Hubs and I thought it might be kind of cool to start working on the alphabet.  We're going to use the "I love my munchkin Flash Cards".

My friend Kristan got these flash cards for her son and liked them, so we put them on our Christmas list and got them as a stocking stuffer.

Little Man likes to sit and flip through the pictures: they're easy enough for him to flip through by himself and seem pretty durable.  They do bend a little, so just be aware of that.

They're really cool because they have the letter in bold, a picture of the animal, the name of each animal in English and Spanish, numbers up to ten, colors and shapes.  The best part about these flashcards:  They're on a ring so they can't get lost!

I don't want to be one of those crazy moms who expects their kids to learn multiplication by the time they're in kindergarden, but, like I stated above, his word associate seems really high (to me anyhow hehehe)  so we wanted to start working on them.  Admittingly, he does seem more interested in the picture than the letters right now.  But that's okay.  If we can learn new animals out of this, that is great, too.  We'll also learn on animal noises when we're working on these cards.  Well...all of the animals that make noises (there are turtles, urchins, and x-ray fish).

You can order the flashcard through amazon here: Munchkin Traveling Flash Cards

But I think you can also get them from Buy Buy Baby (I believe that's where my friend bought them) or maybe even Target (I haven't looked but they carry a lot of Munchkin stuff)

So this is the activity Little Man will be working on this week!
