Tunza cards are reusable index cards that were created a couple of years ago by a busy mom of three. They are great for making your own flashcards, which I find helpful when it comes to reading assignments. Whenever my son doesn’t know a specific word, I write it on one of the Tunza cards and write the word’s meaning on the back of the card. These are typically words that are not on pre-printed, store-bought cards. Once he has mastered that word – including the spelling and meaning – I can then wipe off the ink and reuse the card for another word.
There are “Tunza” of other uses for these handy-dandy, eco-friendly cards such as flashcards for math and geography school projects, grocery shopping lists, and to-do reminders. You can write on both sides of the cards and just wipe clean with rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball. I highly recommend using a permanent ink marker like a Sharpie. A dry erase pen works, but it also smudges easily. A ball point pen also works, but the pen tip leaves an impression on the card.
And the best part of all: the cards only cost $5.00 for a package of 25! These would also make great stocking stuffers or teachers’ gifts. Click here for more information.
