Make Your Own Vision Board for Baby

What you will need:
-1 white poster board
- enough red paper to be able to cut out 8 squares that are each about 4 1/4 inches wide and 5 1/2 inches tall
-black and white images, some great ones can be found here.

     1. Cut a piece of white poster board into horizontal strips. Each strip will create one vision board and should be about 7 inches wide.
     2. Divide your strip of poster board into four equal sections, folding the board on each division accordion style (fold towards the back, then towards the front, then towards the back again). If your strip is about 22 inches long, your divisions should be around 5 1/2 inches apart from one another.
     3. Cut 8 squares out of red paper for each board. The squares should measure to be about 4 1/4 inches wide and 5 1/2 inches tall. Glue the squares on the front and back of the board in each of the sections that you created in step #2.
     4. Cut out some black and white pictures to glue on the red squares. Babies especially love pictures of faces. Some great pictures can be found at this website.
     5. Laminate the board, if you can.

You did it! Now enjoy spending some time with your baby enhancing their vision development!
