K is for Kids Cards
















Stickers and Jelly Beans were loosing their excitement for my son for potty training so I needed something new as a reward. I thought about baseball cards and after looking at the selection at Target, decided to make some fun alphabet cards instead. These are rewarding and educational at the same time! They are the same size as ATCs and fit perfectly in trading card storage pages. They were fun and easy to make and so far he loves earning them!
