thrifty baby entertainment

So you probably know how much babies love high-contrast images.  When Adeline was a baby, I drew a black and white checkerboard and hung it above her changing table.  She loved it so much she would stop crying (because she was usually crying) when she saw it and just stare at it and talk to it.  She talked to it so much we eventually dubbed it her “checkerboard friend.”  I made one for Bea, too.  And I also used these printables from Wee Gallery to make some dangly things to hang from the handle of her car seat.  I just cut out the four images, glued two sides together, laminated them, made a hole with a hole-punch, and tied them on with some yarn (obviously the yarn is short enough that she can’t strangle herself with it — I know you all know that but just thought I’d say it anyway).  They worked miracles for a baby who was none too fond of her car seat.
