It’s never too early to introduce colors to your infant! Because your two-month-old’s eyes are now able to distinguish between shades, make sure to include a wide variety of colors in his or her toys. Today, I emphasized color each time she was on her playmat.
We have a set of shape toys that are in easy, bold colors, and they were perfect for this game (as opposed to multi-colored toys). I named each color in turn as I held it up to Veronika, and encouraged her to reach out.
Some she wanted to grab onto.
Purple and blue got big smiles – maybe those will be her favorite colors down the line!
Then I set up all the colors in front of her for tummy time, so she could look at the rainbow.
We played later in the day with musical instruments, and I showed her a few that were in bold, solid colors, like red rhythm sticks…
… and purple maracas. What a great way to start introducing a rainbow-hued world.
