Fun Visual Motor/Perceptual Activities to Help Your Baby Develop

Hello there, parents and caregivers! Did you know that you can help your baby develop their visual motor and perceptual skills through fun and engaging activities? It’s true! Here are some activities that you can try with your baby to promote their visual development:

  • Mirror, Mirror: Babies love looking at themselves in the mirror. Place a baby-safe mirror in front of your little one and encourage them to reach for their reflection. This activity promotes visual tracking and eye-hand coordination.
  • Ball Rolling Fun: Roll a ball back and forth with your baby. This activity helps develop visual tracking, hand-eye coordination, and depth perception.
  • High Five: Encourage your baby to reach for and touch objects in their environment. Give them high fives, play pat-a-cake, or clap their hands together. These activities promote visual and tactile exploration, as well as hand-eye coordination.
  • Peekaboo: Play peekaboo with your baby by hiding behind a blanket or object and then popping out. This activity promotes object permanence and visual tracking.
  • Picture Books: Read picture books with your baby and point to the pictures as you describe them. This activity promotes visual scanning, tracking, and attention.

Incorporating visual motor and perceptual activities into your baby’s playtime is not only beneficial to their development, but it’s also a lot of fun! Try these activities and have fun watching your little one grow and learn!
