I am very happy that you are here.
Let me introduce myself:
I am an artist and art teacher and currently working in a nursery full time. Being with infants and toddlers 35hours a week makes me more and more curious what they like to play with, how I can make their play more enjoyable and how I can teach them to improve their skills and extend their knowledge.
This stimulating video is an experiment, so please feel free to comment below 🙂 and tell me if your baby liked it or not, smiled or cried, and how old she or he is.
I really appreciate your help!
Here are some facts about High-Contrast research:
“Babies’ brains don’t work quite the same as adults. There is so much going on in this new world that their brains can become completely overwhelmed. High contrast shapes and patterns provide the baby with something simple and engaging to focus on, and in this focus – or intense concentration – they can allow their minds to rest. High contrast shapes may appear odd or even a little boring to adults, but they are designed to hold babies’ attention and the results from them is breathtaking.” – http://www.huggamind.com
“Babies are said to be “tracking” when they try to follow appealing objects with their eyes. The more appealing the object, the more intense and prolonged the tracking. In the first two months of life tracking is difficult, but not impossible. When you use high-contrast designs like black and white bull’s-eyes that move slowly across your baby’s visual field, he will be able to track with more ease because of his interest in the stimulator.” – http://www.huggamind.com
