How to Print the Free Color Flash Cards Printable?

Print. Cut. Laminate.

The pdf file includes 5 pages with 3 cards on each page. Print the cards at home, local library, or store. Each card has cut lines to help you neatly cut them. Laminate the cards to increase durability and longevity. For at home lamination, you can use self adhesive sheets or contact paper without needing a machine. I have used both and tend to use whatever method I find cheaper.

Ways to Increase Durability and Longevity of Nature Color Flash Cards

Cardstock is the preferred choice of paper because it is thicker and cannot be as easily destroyed by little hands.


Highly recommend laminating the print cards for increased durability. Laminating the cards also allows your child to write on the flash cards with a dry erase marker, take them outdoors, easily wipe off, and use other sensory and hands-on activities while decreasing the risk of tearing.

How can I use free printable flash cards?

Color flash cards provide excellent learning opportunities for young learners. There are lots of different ways to use these printable toddler flash cards with your little learners.

Here are a few ways to use these color flash cards at home and in the classroom:

  • show your child the card, discussing color and corresponding colorful objects
  • ask your child to point to the color word and repeat the sound
  • color recognition
  • perform a color search. A letter scavenger hunt is always fun.
  • use color cards to sort out colorful manipulates during sensory play
  • unscramble the cards into the color of the rainbow. This is an advanced skill.
  • play musical chairs (musical cards). Place cards in a circle and have your child walk around the outside of the circle and stop the music, the letter your child stops on let them practice working on reading the color and recalling objects that match the color
  • writing in the sand on a small tray. A little bit of sensory play. 🙂

Add these activities to lesson plans, circle time (small group), hands-on learning time, field trip, nature walk, and nature study unit for a perfect way to enhance your kids or students language development. These cards would make a great addition to your writing center as you introduce new word lists.

Always supervise your children when playing with printables. Young children could chew on cards which can lead to choking.

How to store flash cards?

Color flash cards can be stored in a pocket chart (DIY pocket chart), note card file box, and fun pouches. You could also hole punch them and fasten with a ring binder but this might affect the durability of the print cards.
