What I made this weekend!!

I was showing my dad the cute blocks I made for my ETSY store and we got to talking about coming up with a new and original idea. I would LOVE to take full credit for this one, but it was all him!! THANKS DAD!! Anyway, he said "wouldn't it be cool if you could make flashcards?" Well . . . it would be cool!! and it is cool!! And here they are!!!




I made 26, one for each letter of the alphabet!! This is the crate I made for them, don't judge the nail holes, I haven't quite finished :)


This is the what the front of each card looks like!!




And here is what the back looks like. Don't you just flippin' love 'em??!!! I love that I never have to worry about them getting ripped, soggy or bent. I would guess that it would be rather difficult to lose one too, since they aren't just a thin card that can fall behind a couch or dresser or whatever. And, since they are wood, they can be treated like blocks and stacked and knocked down . . . I was going to give them to Bucket for Christmas, but he got soooo excited when he saw them, that I just couldn't wait. He loved playing with them and they kept him entertained for quite a while. Now, I just have to work with him to learn the words and the letters!!

Of course I put these on ETSY, I love 'em too much not to!! Also, I think it's too fabulous of a thing to not share with the world!! So, if you would like some, check out my store or shoot me an email: meandmybucket @ gmail . com
