Re: Recognizing colours

My DS2 was like this right around 2-knew his letters, numbers, shapes, etc. but couldn't get his colors. When DH and I went in for our eye checks, we did the colorblind test with him (pulled out book in the exam room while waiting for the dr) and he showed us that he was definitely not colorblind. Now at 2.5, he's got it mostly under his belt and we haven't done much more than discuss "Do you want the blue plate or the red plate?" "Do you want to play with the purple playdough or green playdough." He still gets orange and yellow mixed up, but I can tell it's coming. I figure he'll be telling me "No Mommy, that's not purple, that's lavender" by the time he's 5.

Re: Recognizing colours

This is funny to me and proof that all kids are different. My son is almost three and has had his colours completely down since 18 months, no problem. BUT he doesn't know many letters or numbers yet. Granted, colour is more easily incorporated into our day, but still. I think we all have "normal" kidlets!
