The phonics flashcards pack consists of 37 double-sided cards with simplistic and engaging illustrations of animals doing sports and activities, because… why can’t a bear play badminton or a penguin go paddleboarding? Each animal has a name to help identify and make the phonic sound more relatable, you will meet Ollie the octopus, Lara the lion, Gary the goat amongst many other new friends.
We know Phonics can seem daunting but we’ve done all the hard work for you. With our simple to follow instruction cards, you will find everything you need to follow your exciting phonics journey. We will teach you how to use our cards, sound blending, pronunciation, phonics terminology and even phonic games – we’ve got you covered. Each learning group has been cleverly segmented into their own letter groups by colour, so you can concentrate on one group at a time. From there you can start to introduce sound blending where we will start you off by giving you examples of simple words.
So, what’s included in each pack?
Which letters are included in this pack? Letters a-z (not the letter ‘q’ as ‘qu’ is used in phonics) as well ck, th, sh, ch, ng and nk.
These hands-on phonics cards are ideal to help preschoolers and early years to learn their letter sounds, boost confidence, and develop more understanding about reading simple words.
The next set of our Happy Little Doers Phonics will be available soon and will cover more digraphs (two letters working together to create one sound e.g sh, ch) and trigraph letters (three-letter working together to create one sounds e.g ‘igh’ and ‘air’) sounds.
Phonic schemes differ and will vary depending on their specific school syllabus. The aim of all of our cards is to ensure that your child is happy and engaged and becoming a Happy Little Doer!

I went over the digraph cards and I’m not even joking... my son can now do the “th” sound! He has ALWAYS said “fff” instead of “th” no matter how much I tried to encourage it! He has an uncle called Theo so now he says it properly, instead of “fff-eo” and repeating the sentence! Your cards are literally magic, I’m always amazed with each pack!
Yes, absolutely! All of our products are UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) tested. This is a legal requirement for all toys and goods that are used by children to verify toy safety. All paper stock is sustainably sourced and, where possible we use vegetable-based inks and natural materials.
When teaching with phonics flashcards, it is incredibly important for parents to follow the guidance given by the individual product that is being used; Happy Little Doers or otherwise. In the same regard as learning in other subjects, learning each stage in order will make it easier to teach and learn subsequent stages (much like learning numbers – children should master 1 to 19 to build the confidence of learning 20 and upwards!). However… within each stage supplied with the Happy Little Doers Phonics Flashcards for kids, there are a number of fun ways that the cards can be used for learning.

At Happy Little Doers, we’ve spent a great deal of time researching different ways of learning phonics in resources already on the market and in early years settings. As a result, we have created a product that has been highly praised and approved by both parents as well as early years teaching professionals and speech and language therapists.

The answer to this is yes, however… remember that every child, or grown-up for that matter, learns in their own individual way and at their own pace. There are some great resources out there that are effective in learning language and phonics – from books to television programmes. Most parents with young children over the last 15 years or so may be familiar with books written by Julia Donaldson, best known for writing The Gruffalo and Zog. Those that prefer to learn the language through books, and more specifically phonics, are in luck as a selection of 36 short stories are included with her Songbird Phonics Collection.
