Babies love colors and patterns. Catch their attention with this fascinating accordion-folded book for lots of fun together.
Bright, contrasting colors and bold patterns really attract a baby’s attention. Here’s one way to make a book that you can look at with a baby. Remember, babies love to chew on everything, so you’ll need to hold the book every time!

Fold the strip of paper in half so short ends meet. Fold in half again so the folded edge meets the ends. Unfold the strip to reveal four blocks separated by fold lines.
Use Crayola Washable Classic Broad Line Markers to draw bold patterns in each block. You might make a checkerboard, a bull’s eye, spirals, or stripes.
Wrap each end of the strip around a plastic straw. Attach with Crayola School Glue. Air-dry.
