Flash cards are like Lego’s.

They end up everywhere!

I bought a little container to keep them all in.

They still end up everywhere.

Not to mention if you are on the go as much as we are, it’s impossible to take them with you and actually come back to the house with them.

Maybe it’s just us?

If you are in the same boat as me, I have the perfect solution to keep all those pesky cards TOGETHER!

Book Rings!

When I was in high school, I had a teacher who had us make, like a million flash cards. In order to keep them together she had us make a hole punch in the top corner and attach them to a book ring.

So¬†simple, yet a great way to keep them together, and makes it¬†easier to take with you when you’re out and about.

Here’s what you need:

3″ Book Ring

Note Card ( you can also do this with flash cards from the store)

A Marker (if you’re making your own)

Hole Punch


Just Punch a hole in the top corner and attach to the ring.


My son’s is made up of his sight words, so I wrote a different word on each side.20150217_160633

But it’s great to use for test questions for any grade level.

As I said, it’s great to take with you, just drop it in your purse or their bag get a little studying done!

Two birds, one stone!

Flash cards were bought in bulk when my daughter was little, I have noticed that I use them way less now that she is 6. But she would even use them to draw pictures on them. They are really handy, and absolutely great for sight words.

My momma used to do this when we were little. Such a neat idea and a great way to keep up with them. When I was I. College it stuck with me and that's how I studied from some of my science classes like geology.
