Colours fascinate babies. The ability to identify colours is a milestone of their cognitive development. Most toddlers start differentiating colours by the age of 18 months. However, their ability to name different colours can develop by 36 months.
Tips to remember
Children have different understanding capabilities, and you should design activities based on your child’s needs.
Introduce only one or two colours at one time and continue teaching about it until your child can easily recognize it.
Do not rush with any activity related to colour. Give toddlers adequate time to understand and explore.
Keep exposing toddlers to colourful objects. More practice will help them retain the concept of colour better.
