Introducing colors to your child develops their cognitive skills and triggers their creativity. The ability to discriminate colors enables them to compare objects and organize them according to color.
For children, colors play a huge role in describing how things look. Once your little one is able to recognize different colors and name them, the ability to communicate and express themselves improves.
Children can recognize colors from a young age so teaching them basic colors is easy because the colors are familiar. Repeatedly seeing the colors individually displayed on the color cards makes the colors easy to identify when they see them in their surroundings.
