While going through a file box I came across a stack of something that needed another purpose.
And so, my old business cards have been colored, counted and cut. We’ve used them to play memory games and arranged them to form different shapes. They’ve been converted into small flash cards, a mini pennant garland and tools for setting the table.
Future activity ideas will include writing practice (one card per each letter that can be shuffled later for the child to spell their own name) as well as to count how many. I also thought to save all the colorful dots left over from all the hole-punching for easy table confetti to decorate our next birthday party.
As they’re made out of sturdy card stock, the possibilities are endless.
