WFMW: Cheap, Cheap Art for Baby's Brain

As a new parent, I keep hearing from all sides how babies really benefit from visual stimulation in the early months. According to experts, the best artwork for baby's brain is black-and-white patterns: broad stripes, checkerboards, bulls-eyes, et cetera.

As a young parent, I am flat broke. As much as I would love to buy up all the art that will certainly make my kid a genius, all of my money has to go towards other things, like, you know, rent and stuff!

There is a whiteboard hanging above our desk-- I mean, changing station, for those To-Do lists I love to make. Tonight, in a flash of inspiration, I grabbed a black marker and drew a pattern. Voila, instant art!
