Why is learning colors important for children?

Distinguishing between colors is a foundational skill that equips children with the ability to later:

  • Sort and categorize
  • Problem solve
  • Use descriptive language

At what age should children know colors?

Children can distinguish between different colors as early as 18 months of age, but the ability to name colors develops later.

At age 3, kids should be able to begin learning colors. They should be able to name at least one color correctly.

At 4 years old, children should be able to identify 6 common colors and sort items according to color.
