Infant Stimulation Activity 19: the magic of black on white
Two 2-inch triangles point to point, yes, thislooks like a bowtie and is a featured design on a Babysmartees t-shirt. This is a preferred shape to offer your infant for visual stimulation - to learn to focus and concentrate. It may seem like a simple shape to you, but it is complex for your infant.
Interchange this shape with a paper plate face (see Infant Stimulation Activity 6) and then exchange again with the checkerboard shape (see Infant Stimulation Activity 7) - antoher featured design on a Babysmartees t-shirt.
Watch your baby’s eyes and watch him focus. When he turns away it is time to change the shape he is looking at and eventually time to stop the activity. He does not need more than 15 minutes.
Now it is time to cuddle, or rock, or just get on with the rest of your day! Easy! Fun! Good for baby!
