Infants are very interested in, and stimulated by, simple black, white, and red pictures. Use construction paper and markers to create patterns such as a bulls-eye, fat stripes, or a large checkerboard. Simple faces are especially appealing — use a black marker to draw one on a paper plate.
Tape these images by your child’s changing table, her crib, or in view of her car seat.
As you child gets older, introduce additional colors, shapes, and more complex patterns such a narrower stripes and smaller checks. you can also draw simple pictures like a flower or a teddy bear.
