Colours Sorting

Colours Sorting

You will be surprised to know that children start recognizing  different colours in the early age of 18 months and at the same time children also start to notice similarities and differences in shape, size, and texture.

But it will be a while longer before they are able to name the colors; most children can name at least one color by age 3.

It is a great activity to develop fine motor control, coordination, concentration and learning about colours.

Sorting and Matching colours is simple to set up and will arouse any child’s curiosity to play and have fun.
