Vision toys and games



Vision is much more than just “20/20.” It is a combination of sub-skills which can be learned and developed. Each of these entertaining gifts builds different foundational visual skills.

Many screen-based activities and games provide so much stimulation that a child’s brain is overwhelmed with observing rather than developing the abilities to create, visualize, imagine and problem solve. This gift-giving season, consider giving games and activities that enhance a child’s brain and assist in their vision development. For more information on each of these foundational visual skills and an excellent child development timeline, visit covd.org.
