What age should child know shapes and colors?
Many children are ready to begin learning about shapes and colors when they are 18 months although each child is different. Some may be ready a little sooner and some may be ready to learn when they are closer to 2 years old. By the time your child is three, they may be able to identify basic shapes such as circles, triangles, and squares and are able to recognize multiple colors. Practice shapes and colors often with your child. Shape and color recognition are an important part of developing your child’s critical thinking skills and helps to give them language to categorize and describe the world around them.
