Make Easy High Contrast Cards For Your Newborn Baby


If you haven’t heard already, I recently gave birth to my second daughter 🙂 I can’t still can’t believe I’m now a mother of three!

I am already asking myself where the time is going as I watched my daughter grow from 0 to 5 months in the blink of an eye. And we already got started on some baby activities too.

I’m super excited to share this simple activity using high contrast cards during tummy time. And all you need is cookie cutters (or sandwich cutters), paper, and a marker! Tummy time is important for baby’s development and this simple addition will help to lengthen the time that babies are comfortable on their tummies.

The great thing is you get double development with the visual stimulation!

Babies, especially newborns, do not see as well as adults. So high contrasting colors like black, red, and white, put together, tend to be attractive and downright mesmerizing. The great thing is that instead of buying expensive toys, you can easily use items around the house to achieve the high contrast effect.

For more information, check out Little Lifelong Learners post on high contrast visual stimulation for babies.

Take a look below of some of my daughters tummy time baby activities using the high contrast concept.
