One of the most basic things your toddler should know are shapes and colors. There are many ways to help your kiddo learn his shapes and colors and the key is making it fun and he will learn effortlessly.

You don't even have to wait for your child to sit up on their own. Even a baby strapped in her bouncy chair who cannot sit up on her own will squeal with delight when you hold up bright flash cards with colors and shapes or even large sized blocks for her to hold. Granted, they will be mostly tasted so make sure they are large size blocks to keep them from being a choking hazard but again, making it fun will make her look forward to learning with you.

A Rollercoaster Shape Sorter is a fun way for older children to learn their colors and shapes. This wooden cube topped off with a friendly flower will challenge your children to put the correct shapes into the same shaped holes. You can make it a challenge and set a timer and see if your child can make and beat his own high score or if you have a group of children over - let them have a race and see who is the fastest shape sorter. It's a good idea to have a little give a prize for each child - trying should always be rewarded. Rewards can be simple toys like a coloring book and new box of crayons or healthy snacks!

There are 16 chunky vibrant shapes and their size makes them easy for little hands to grab. Knowing their basic shapes is a skill children should have by the time they enter kindergarten, make sure your child isn't left behind and get him both fun toys and learning toys that make learning an enjoyable experience.
