Last year, I created a set of printable alphabet flashcards to use in practicing alphabet and pre-reading skills with my preschooler. I shared them with my readers along with 23 unconventional (and fun!) ways to learn with alphabet flashcards.

Apparently you all loved them because they quickly became one of my most popular posts. Thanks to the 30,000+ of you who have viewed/downloaded them! Truly, it makes me so happy that something I created has been able to help so many of you teach your own kids.

Recently, a reader asked me if I had any plans to create other flashcard sets for numbers or shapes. Well, you ask, I deliver. So, today I’m sharing with you my newest set of flashcards to help you teach your child…

**NUMBERS!**

I know there are other number flashcards out there, but–as is often the case when I teach my children–I wanted to design my own. Why?

I wanted to design a set of cards that would have everything you would need to practice a variety of math skills:

- number identification
- counting
- representation (connecting the idea of “three” to three objects)
- sequencing
- basic addition and subtraction (as well as multiplication and division)
- understanding one-to-one correspondence
- reading the written word version of numbers

## WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THESE ALPHABET FLASHCARDS:

**They are big**(1/4 page). This makes them easy to read and easy for little hands to grab and manipulate.**They include the numbers, counting cards, and math symbols.**While having cards with the basic numbers is a good starting place, this set includes so much more to help you develop numeracy in many creative ways.**The font**. A lot of the flash cards I found use fonts that are different from how my kids are taught in school to form the numbers. I wanted to be able to use these cards for writing practice as well as identifying numbers, so I wanted to make sure the font I chose matched the way my kids have been taught to write their numbers.

## HOW TO MAKE YOUR FLASH CARDS LAST–LET’S TALK LAMINATING:

I highly recommend laminating your flash cards to make them last longer. You can certainly use them without doing so, but paper only lasts so long in the hands of a toddler…if you know what I mean.

If you don’t have a laminator, I have to say, I think every mom needs one. They come in SO handy, especially if you are the type to do learning activities at home with your child (which you probably are, since you’re reading a blog post about DIY flash cards…just sayin’).

This Scotch one is a really good, basic laminator that is budget-friendly. It’s the one I currently have (after the one I had for almost a decade finally died), and I’ve been really pleased with it.

## HOW TO MAKE YOUR FREE PRINTABLE FLASH CARDS

### MATERIALS NEEDED:

- card stock paper
- laminator
- scissors or paper cutter

### WHAT TO DO:

- Download and print the free printable number flashcards on white card stock paper. You could use plain paper, but they will be stiffer and more card-like if you use card stock.
- Cut out the flash cards (there are four per page). I used my paper cutter to keep the lines super straight, but you could use scissors if you have a steady hand.
- Laminate four at a time. Make sure you leave space between the cards in the laminating pouch so you can cut them apart later.
**Pro Tip:**Put a dab of glue on the back of each card before setting it in place in the laminating pouch. This will help it stay in place as you feed it through the machine. - Once cool, cut the laminated pages into flash cards. I like to round the corners so that there are no sharp points to poke anyone.
- Now you’re ready to play!

They take a little time to put together, but it’s a great, mindless activity to do while watching a show on *Netflix *(or whatever) in the evening.
