How to make homemade flashcards

Here's a cool idea I stole from my nephew's nanny: I printed out some images (some off the internet, some of my own), had them laminated at the local copy shop, cut them out into squares (with rounded corners no they're not pointy!), punched a hole in each one, and put them all on a binder ring (I think that's what they're called. You can get them at office supply stores). So easy and cheap! And the best part is you can put pictures of family, friends, and pets along with other words you want to teach your baby. As you can see, Penny is obsessed with her cards and carries them all over the apartment.

Someone out there needs to buy this rad terrarium footstool I spotted on Etsy. I can't quite justify buying it myself, but it is so fantastic. Photo by Hindsvik.
