#Review Educational Alphabet Flash Cards for kids 3+

My littlest daughter Khloe is big on learning, so I jumped at the chance to test and review Educational Planets Flash Cards for kids. When they arrived, K went crazy! She couldn't wait to get them open and start learning. The flash cards come with 52 letter cards, two of each letter, an upper case and a lower case. They also include a reference card and a card with suggested activities. We decided to start out by matching the upper case letters to their lower case match. K got the hang of it quick! It helped the pictures were mostly familiar to her.

One of the best features in my opinion is that the words are spelled at the bottom, so K gets to practice her spelling. It's one of her favorite activities to do with "her cards" now. Our game goes a little like this:

Me: "Khloe, what's this??"
Khloe: "ummm... cake??"
Me: "Yes! Very good!"
Khloe: " do you spell it!??"
Me: Okay, Khloe, how do you spell cake?"
Khloe: "ummmm....c...a....k....e!!! Cake!"
Me: "Awesome! You're so smart Khloe!"

Smiles all around. I love games like these. They build her confidence in a fun, educational way. They are perfect for her age group as well. Toys for 3-5 year olds She's learning phonics and to connect letters with sounds (like O to octopus!)

We've played with these cards every day since getting them. It's becoming a great bonding game! My older girls have joined in the fun too!

Educational Planet has some really unique and whimsical toys! I'm really glad I have found thier website, because the holidays are coming!! They have some great educational gifts I'm definitely adding to my shopping list!
