Our world is filled with things that are trying to capture our attention, so the ability to focus on certain aspects is a vital skill. Visual attention is a way to decide what you want to look at and what you what to ignore. Use visual activities to help sharpen children’s visual skills. A wide selection of fun activities can help a child to shift attention, track objects and copy patterns.
Spot the Differences Shapes and coloring
Use puzzle games where players determine differences between two set of shapes. Learning to spot the differences helps to build visual discrimination skills. Such games often involve looking for objects that have been added, omitted or placed in a different spot or position. Searching for changes also helps children develop visual memory. Children must remember what things looked like in one picture while they are focusing on the other picture.
