I heart flashcards. They're effective. There's many uses for them. And, if used creatively, they could be quite fun. Today I'll show you how to make watercolor flashcards. On Wednesday, I'll show several activities to accompany these homemade flashcards. Here's what we did: 

MATERIALS | Flashcard PDF, watercolors, water, paintbrushes, and scissors.

DIRECTIONS | 1. Print the PDF. 2. Cut. 3. Paint the flashcards with watercolors. We did them in an ombré effect.
