Babies between 12 months and 3 years of age have acquired many visual skills. They have gone from seeing blurry and even in black and white to capturing all the tones. They are able to focus what they have near and far and manage peripheral vision, which is one that reaches almost 180º.
However, his vision is not yet fully developed. They will have to wait until 5 or 6 years for both eyes to work in a coordinated and precise way.
Parents can help our children to complete this visual development with some simple games that we can play at home:
- Sit him on a small stool so that you can support the soles of your feet on the ground. Place near him a toy or item that catches his attention so that he has to get up and reach it.
- Encourage walking by placing objects at a distance that force you to move and grab it.
- To reinforce your balance and the perception you have of your body, in addition to making you work focusTo do this, put objects on the ground and so he has to bend down, in this way he will have to calculate the distance at which the element is. You will also be stimulating hand-eye coordination.
- It is good to stimulate fine motor skills, for this you can give the child pencils or crayons so that draw, doodle, or freeform lines.
- To work visual memory through touchFor this we can offer the baby objects of different sizes and textures so that they can discriminate without looking.
- They can also start working with simple puzzles.
All these simple actions contribute to training the musculature of the eyes of the children to strengthen it and encourage both to work together and precisely.
