You will need coloured pegs, we purchased our mini pegs from our local art and crafts stores or alternatively you can colour wooden pegs with paint or food dye.  You will also need our free printable buttons and flower shapes.  Laminating sheets are optional but are recommended for durability and will help make the picture cards last longer.
