B2 Flipping cards vocabulary for jobs around the house

With some people finding it hard to make ends meet and others doing their best to be sustainable, many of us like to give it a go at DIY. However, it’s true that on many occasions we end up with a handful of screws or even worse, an injury or having to call a professional to get the job done because we get tired of seeing everything lying around and in a mess.

For this post I have created a wordcloud and a set of flipping cards with some words related to household repairs and tools. As usual, try to guess the word and flip the card to see if you were right.
