While a baby's vision may be one of the least developed senses at birth, visual play during the early months may have the most profound effect on baby's development. The best way you as a parent can stimulate baby's vision is using toys that have black and white stripes or light and dark contrasting colors.
As your child grows older, you can help stimulate your child's visual development by having them translate what they have learned into pictures. By creating images, your child will enhance their memory and retention.
Art supplies and building projects are great tools for children to express their creativity. And by nurturing your child's creativity and imagination, you are setting the stage for an enhanced learning experience that flows over into all areas of their development.
