Damien Loving His Color Flash Cards

Learning Colors
Damien and I colored some color flash cards today. The front has a color and the back has the word. Such simple fun. For a few seconds a couple of times a day.

He loves them. I really don't know why some people equate flash cards for one-year-olds with child abuse. Babies really do love flash cards when presented in the right way.

"At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes." Matthew 11:25

Damien is 16 months old

    We really don’t do much flashcards, but I think if it’s a fun interactive activity that mom and baby enjoy, it’s got to be beneficial. No different than browsing a board book together and talking about the colors and pictures.

      I agree, when used correctly, it is no different than looking at board books.

    My 1 year old loves them tooo! He gets soo excited when his sister and I act them out, like dance, walk, crawl, etc. He loves when we show him, the microwave, the fridge, etc! I completely agree, babies love the attention.
