I take it your current computer doesn't have a floppy drive. Am I right and if so what you need to do is obtain a floppy drive. You can get a USB floppy drive quite easily. Once you have one plug it in to a USB port on your computer and drag and drop the files from the floppies to a temp directory or any other directory you might create to hold them on your computer. Once you have done this for all the floppies just burn them to a writable CD using whatever burning software you might have. If someone you know has a computer with a floppy drive you might do it on that computer and save the cost of buying a floppy drive. If you are going to buy one the reason I suggested a USB floppy drive is that you do not need to do anything special to connect it to the computer. You don't say if you have a laptop or desktop computer. If it is a laptop you will nto be able to connect an internal floppy drive anyway because it might not have the means for doing it. If you have a desktop then it can be done easily if you know how but you said make it simple so I guess you don't want to know that.

You need a floppy drive to be able to copy them to cd, so you are back where you started no floppy drive.
So the options are buy a usb floppy drive, or find someone that has one that can copy them onto a cd for you.
