The lovely folks over at Meadow Kids recently sent us a box of My First Words flashcards for O.
They arrived in a lovely, gender-neutral box with the lid secured well with an elasticated strap. We opened them up and inside were a variety of flashcards; some showing a picture of an item and others with the corresponding words.
The cards are by no means flimsy, they’re made from thick card which is great for little (and, sometimes, rough) hands. The prints are clear and really good quality with bright colours to keep younger ones interested.
O got them all out of the box and I asked him to divide them up into a pile of pictures and a pile of words. As he’s only 3, he’s a little young to be able to read yet, so I read the words on each card and asked him to find the matching picture to make pairs. He thought this was so fun!
