Baby Face

Baby Face (6)

Veronika ia nearly two months old, and we’re moving on from just black and white to bright, bold colors – now in her visual repertoire!

This cute crafting idea is perfect to catch your baby’s attention, since in addition to primary colors, babies love faces.

Trace a circle on a piece of felt and cut out.

From here, I made two versions. In the first, I cut out eye holes and a smile.

In the second, I glued on eyes and a mouth in additional colors, for even more stimulus.

I attached one under the hood of her stroller, to enjoy on walks out.

The other was perfect for gazing time in the bassinet! If you have the time, you could make a whole batch of these, with different emotions on each circle.

Black & White Dot Pictures

Travis and I cleaned out our craft bin this morning, and happened upon an old sheet of black dot stickers. I instantly knew what to do with the leftovers!

We’re always mixing up visuals for Veronika’s tummy time, or time spent in her bassinet, and these black dot stickers were perfect against sturdy watercolor paper.

Instead of random patterns, I made one page with letters; a V for Veornika and T for Travis felt appropriate.

On the reverse, I made shapes and lines.

Obviously it’s much too early for your infant to absorb the lesson here, but it’s never too soon to introduce concepts of letters and shapes!

All she knew right now was that she loved them. The pictures were a big hit both at the diaper table and during tummy time.
