As with the Light and Shade game, we love finding new ways to entertain Veronika (and strengthen her eyesight!) in these early days. Big brother Travis particularly enjoyed this version.
We re-purposed an old craft – dancing ribbon wands – for this cute activity, but if you don’t have these already-made, simply tie a few pretty ribbons onto wooden dowels securely. The greater variety of ribbon the better!
Dangle the ribbons where you infant can gaze at them.
It was fun to let her feel the ribbons briefly against her fingertips, too.
Have fun changing the way you move the ribbons: jerky up and down motions first, and then a gentle swing.
Of course, never leave your newborn alone with the ribbons – this is definitely a hands-on game!
