How many of y'all remember flash cards? You may use them with your children now. But I haven't looked at a set of flash cards since I was in elementary school learning how to add and subtract numbers. In fact, I recently found that same set of flash cards at my mom's house. Crazy that she kept them for 30+ years!
I think flash cards are great. They help you interact and engage with your child in addition to your children teaching each other. At least that's what ours did when we received the Washington State Inspired Chunky Flash Cards from Bright Eyed Baby.
These flash cards are AWESOME! They're chunky. They're colorful. They're fun. Just take a look at the video below plus learn more about the creator behind this educational tool.
The states she currently has available are California, Colorado and Washington which we reviewed in the video.
In her latest Kickstarter campaign, she's introducing Florida (yay! that's where we live.), Texas (double yay! that's where I grew up.), New York (triple yay! that's where I was born.) and a U.S.A. series (how awesome is that?). If you'd like to pre-order a set, just go here. It's available at a discounted price of only $16 per set. Tax free and no shipping charge. Want to order more? We think they'd make great baby shower and even birthday gifts. The price per set decreases when you order more.
If you'd like her to create a set for your state, you can give your suggestion here.

TOP 3 THINGS WE LIKE ABOUT STATE INSPIRED FLASH CARDS:
1. They're well made. These are not your typical flash cards that some parents laminate so they last longer. They're made of a high quality cardboard type material with a glossy finish that should last several years with your kids.
2. They're colorful. My math flash cards from back in the day were black and white. These are brightly colored which really appealed to our kids as you can tell by their testimonial in the video review. They also include bold words which can be extremely beneficial to children who are learning to read like our Monkey.
3. They're state inspired. Usually when we teach geography to our children, we use a map. These flash cards are a nice compliment to that because they go further than simply the state shape and location in the U.S.A. They feature food, flowers, and landmarks associated with that state. What a great educational tool! What's an added bonus is that they're a great size so you can take them when you travel to a specific state and snap pictures with the cards.
This link will take you to her Kickstarter campaign where you can select how many sets you'd like to purchase. Again, they're offered at a discounted price of $16 per set which includes free shipping. Not only will you receive an awesome learning tool, but you'll be supporting a mother's entrepreneurial dream!
