Contrast cards

We love contrast cards!

 

Amazing for visual development and helping with concentration skills too. Click the images below to download some sets that we’ve created for you!


When our little ones are born, they don’t yet have control over the muscles that work their eyes, oculomotor control, so by playing in a visual way not only are we helping these muscles, we are giving their eyes interesting things to see, interpret and discriminate.


These contrast cards have been designed to stimulate the visual abilities of your baby and you can use them to encourage healthy sensory development.


The contrast sheets can be printed out and cut into separate cards and we’ve given lots of options of dark images on a light background, light images on a dark background and some abstract shapes and recognisable ones too so that you can talk to your little one about them. They are a great basis for play with a newborn baby. 


Always make sure that your baby is within eyesight and arms reach when carrying out activities, make sure cards don’t go near mouths and have fun talking through the cards with your little one to add an auditory element to the activity too.
