- You could use them to practice reading sight words. Write the different words inside & have your child practice reading the one chosen.
- States & capitols- write the capitol inside the flap- open to see the answer.
- Vocab words- definition inside, or vice versa.
- Foreign language vocab
- Word families, or rhyming words
- Math games- have numbers & they have to add, subtract, multiply the ones chosen, or make them into fractions…

- Learning colors, shapes, letters, etc…
The possibilities are endless! I would love to know any more ideas you have to use them.
