Pinwheel Watch

Pinwheel (1)

Today’s activity with Veronika was simple but beautiful – just the right level of activity in a busy household preparing for the Thanksgiving holiday!

But we stole a quiet moment while the morning sunshine was particularly strong on our back patio, bundled up and headed outside to watch… the pinwheel.

Pinwheels are a great option for newborn eyes: bright, contrasting colors, plus movement that will catch their vision.

Simply sit and look if it’s windy enough for the pinwheel to spin on its own. Older siblings can give a helpful spin to get things started, otherwise!

Either way, Veronika was transfixed.
