More back-to-school today--I guess I'm a little excited. I really don't want summer to end, but I love shopping the back-to-school sales! I went to Target today and loaded up on the new flashcards in the Dollar Spot. My kids love them. But I don't love the 52-million-card-pick-up game that ensues each time we have a study session. So flashcard rings were born. Easy enough you don't need a tutorial, but I'm going to give it to you anyway, because I'm cool like that.
Flashcard Ring Tutorial
*Book rings from the office supply store
*Crop-A-Dile or other heavy duty hole punch
1. Make sure all your flashcards are facing the same way. This is a good "game" for the kids to play. Punch a hole through a small stack of the cards in the upper left-hand corner, being careful to keep them straight and not cut off any words or important information.
2. Lay one of your punched cards on top of another small stack of flashcards. With a pen, mark where your hole was punched.
3. Punch the next stack of cards where you traced your hole. Repeat with remaining cards.
4. Open book ring and slide through all the holes of the punched cards. Close ring.
5. Never play 52-card pick-up again. Unless you want to. Oh, and these are perfect for car trips!
