First Time Mom and Losing It: DIY Number Flash Cards for Toddlers and Printable

DIY Number Flash Cards for Toddlers and Printable



My husband started teaching my daughter numbers by counting her blocks. My little smarty pants can now count to twelve. She counts everything in her sight. She counts her blocks, magnets, dolls, even the tiles on the bathroom walls when I take her a bath. Since she memorized counting from 1 to 12, I also want her to know what each number looks like. I decided to make her some more flash cards with just the plain numbers. I didn't want to distract her with graphics and colors so I just chose a big black number for the front. I also added a second page to be printed on back of the flash cards with stars she can count for each number when you flip the card.

If you want to print the ones I made you can save the .PDF files below onto your computer. Click on the link, Download, then Direct Download. Save onto your computer where you can easily find it. Then Open the file, press File.. Print and pick the Fit option. I used 110lb card stock paper to print mine so that they would be more durable. Flip the page that printed out and put into printer properly so that page two corresponds with the numbers in front. I would test it out on plain paper first. Then just cut them out and let them have fun!

  1. Flash cards are such a great way to teach kids math. It is really great you took the time to make and save all this information for easy access for other parents. I agree with not distracting with pictures and graphics by just using the numbers. Good luck to you and your lil one on your math journey!

  5. Wonderful idea! I need to use these with my three year old. He's really been surprising me with how high he can count, and our counting cards don't go past twenty. The '18' flash card us upsidedown the other day, and he told me it was 'eighty-one.' I was floored... didn't even knew there WAS a number 81!

  6. Thanks for sharing your cute number flash cards. I think our children learned to count mainly because daddy always counts while he comes down the stairs. He started it with our almost-7 year old and has done it with all of them. We also do a lot of counting in the kitchen.
    Love finding new math and learning activities.

  14. Even though kids today are finding their learning ways on modern gadgets these flashcards are still essentials for some reasons, like - they are cheaper , they do not go low battery and also they don't need any internet connection to be operational and lastly this can make strong bond connection to the people involve.
