  • Think zoo animals. Be a good start for the animal cards. Shapes, colors,numbers, and the alphabet are good too.

  • Yeah, go through the alphabet and draw something for each letter. Do the numbers with funny things for each number. I like the zoo animal idea, too!

  • pictures of animals then under the photo the name of the animal, or even the sound the animal makes, where they live. Just things they will understand at their age. the abcs would be a good one to make, shapes.

  • cut pictures from old magazines or color books and get supplies from dollar tree or where ever they are the least expensive for you

  • I agree with the others- letters, numbers, shapes, and pictures of animals from magazines or off the internet. Do colors as well- that one is fun and easy to make. HTH

  • Do animals and you can mimic the sounds they make. :) Might see if your local library has any National Geographic mags you can keep that are outdated. :)

  • Use 3 by 5 cards then laminate them. Or it might be cheaper to get a poster board and do a theme(animals) laminate the whole board and cut out yourself
