“And I learned what is obvious to a child. That life is simply a collection of little lives, each lived one day at a time. That each day should be spent finding beauty in flowers and poetry and talking to animals. That a day spent with dreaming and sunsets and refreshing breezes cannot be bettered.” —Nicholas Sparks
Whether you’re looking for tummy time activities or ways to stimulate your child’s development, high-contrast images are what you need.
You might have come across various Montessori-inspired baby books and toys and wonder why most of them are black and white or black, white, and red.
In the first few months of their lives, babies only see in greyscale so black-and-white pictures will catch their attention and benefit them in various ways. What’s more, your newborn can’t focus more than 5 inches to 27 inches away.
Showing your newborn baby high-contrast cards will help their brain development, stimulate their optic nerve, develop their retinas, and entertain them during tummy time.
If you have a toddler at home, high-contrast baby images can also be a fun and easy way for the older child to play with the baby as they will be able to name the objects they see on the pictures.
I’m currently pregnant with my second kiddo and slowly preparing all things newborn. Besides baby and postpartum essentials, I’ve also decided to create some black-and-white pictures that I will print and laminate for our little one. I’m sharing them free of charge in this post so other mamas can save some time and money.
Below you’ll find a free printable with 50 high-contrast pictures. 25 A4 pages, with 2 images per page. I highly recommend printing and laminating them.
The pictures include various shapes and objects. You will see inter alia animals (cat, dog, fish, cat, cow, swan, bee, etc.), shapes (circles, triangles, etc.), patterns (dots, zig-zags, florals, etc.), a car, a plane, a heart, as well as words such as mama, papa, and love.
Here is a preview of all the 50 images you’ll find in the free PDF at the end of the post.
