What Makes These Cards Special

Grows with your child. From age 0 through first grade.

Vocabulary building. Helps your kiddo learn new words and boost their language development.

Boost cognitive skills. Boosts your child’s cognitive skills like working memory, visual perception, concentration, and problem-solving.

Reuse them (over and over). Why use printables? Because you get to print them as many times as you want. And repurpose them into a million different activities. Ideas included.

Hit developmental milestones. Hands-on learning activity that’s age-appropriate for preschool and early elementary kids.

Vibrant colors. Colorful watercolor art keeps your little learner focused and engaged.

Compact design. Take them in the car, to the park, in an airplane, to grandma’s house. They go everywhere!

Fine motor activity. Fantastic practice to develop their fine motor skills, and I include creative ideas to use these activities in gross motor play too.

Activity Ideas

Montessori 3 part cards are designed to be used in specific activities at every age — infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and school age. But you can also use them in sooo many other fun ways. I’ve included a whole bunch for you, plus your bundle includes a bonus activity guide with 15 ways to use the cards. Here are some of my favorite activity ideas:

Montessori activities. Make traditional Montessori matching activities to build associations between words and objects, learn pattern recognition, and build vocabulary.

Sensory bin. Hide the image pieces for your kiddo in a sensory bin to find and and match to the control card.

Relay race. Little one having trouble sitting to learn? Then get them up and moving with a relay race — running back and forth to match the label card and control card.

Scavenger hunt. Hide the image cards, and have your little one hunt and find them around the room, then match them to the control card.

Card games. Create a deck of cards by printing multiple sets of cards and play card games like Go Fish, Slap It and Memory.

Independent play. They make a great afterschool activity, or addition to a morning basket.

These are just some of ideas you’ll receive as part of your free Flash Card Activity Guide — included with purchase!
