For some reason my kids are OBSESSED with cards. Playing cards, credit cards (eye roll), and especially flash cards.

When I learned about these unique, handmade flash cards from Papery Pier, I jumped on them immediately! They are made with high quality thick paper (similar to board books), so they’re tear resistant against my rough and tumble toddlers.

The cards are fun, colorful, educational, and most importantly durable for the on-the-go kids like mine.

Okay, I’m going to pause from this review and give a #humblebrag. I really had no idea how many shapes my 3 (almost 4 year old) knew. Y’all he even know a parallelogram. I can’t take credit for that. Maybe Mickey Mouse? Probably preschool. Regardless, it was quite the confidence booster for him to know almost all the shapes from the Papery Pier cards. He was so proud.

And in typical Luke fashion became an instant teacher for his sister.

Now if only I could get Luke and Eden NOT to fight over them. Hmmmm.

Check them out! They come in different sizes and feature different themes.
