To make this flip book I used:

*If you can’t find plastic file folders you could use colored card instead. Or colored plastic filing dividers could work too as long as they are opaque enough.DIY First Words Flip Book

I cut the file folders into small rectangles, approximately 2.25″ x 1.75″. I cut a piece of cardstock to form a base for the book. You could use more plastic from the leftover file folders but I wanted a contrasting colour.

Using the hole punch I cut a hole at the top of each rectangle, and three holes in the book base. My original plan had been to use stickers on the plastic cards: it would look more colourful and considerably neater than my handwriting! But the stickers peeled off too easily from the plastic – so I used a permanent marker and tried to make my writing as neat as possible! 🙂 I wrote a variety of consonants on the first and third sets of cards, and just vowels on the second set.

Then I threaded the cards onto three split rings to form a flip book.

I think that we will have this for a long time as he is only just starting out on learning to read. His 6 year old friend loved it too so I think we will find this useful for several years!
