Your little one will know their colors in no time by learning what things are red with this free red words flashcards printable and a bonus coloring page. This set of color flashcards includes food, buildings, and living things that are red to help your child learn color literacy.
In preschool and Kindergarten, making flashcards to practice the various things your child is learning while at home is easy and inexpensive. Young children also typically love school so practicing their skills at home is often a fun activity that your child will love.
This set of red words flashcards will be great practice for toddlers and preschoolers, especially those who are just starting to learn their colors.
Also, be sure to check out my free Kindergarten sight words flashcards to practice the sight words that they will need to memorize on their journey toward learning to read.
This set doesn’t just have a color on it for a young child to memorize. Instead, it shows them what everyday items are that color to help them connect colors to the world around them.
Why These Color Words Flashcards Work
- They are large and, therefore, easy to see and easy for young children to flip through.
- Each flashcard is an item or living thing that is likely familiar to toddlers, preschoolers, and Kindergarteners. The colors are vibrant and fun.
- The designs are child-friendly and easy to recognize.
How to Make the Flashcards
- Download and print the free red words color flashcards on white 8.5” x 11” card stock paper. Card stock is thicker than regular printer paper, so your printable flashcards will be durable enough to use over and over again. You could use plain paper in a pinch, but your cards will last longer if printed on card stock.
- Cut out the flashcards with a paper cutter or scissors.
- If laminating your new flashcards, laminate them four cards at a time, leaving enough space between the cards so you can cut them apart into four individual cards.
- Pro tip: to help ensure that your cards don’t move around inside the pouch, put a small dab of glue behind the card to help to keep it in place inside the laminating pouch.
- Once cool, cut the laminated pages into flashcards. I like to round the corners so that there aren’t any sharp points to poke anyone.
- If you’d like, punch a hole in the corner of each flashcard and hold them together with a 1-inch binder ring. This way, you can keep them all together in one place without the risk of losing them.
Supplies You Will Need
- 8.5” x 11” card stock
- hole punch
- scissors or paper cutter
- 1-inch binder rings
- laminator (optional)
How to Make Your Flashcards Last
While laminating your flashcards is purely optional, it’s a good idea if you want your flashcards to last, especially the younger your child. Depending on your budget and laminating needs, you can purchase a laminator for as much as $150 or as little as $30.
A laminator is one of those things that you don’t think you need until you have one. They are great not only for making flashcards but also for laminating family recipes, photos, documents, etc.
I have the Scotch TL906, and it works well for my purposes. It also comes with 200 laminating pouches, which will keep you laminating for a long time before having to purchase more.
