  • My daughter just turned 2. She knows a bit of everything but is more focused on talking then learning her shapes, etc... I don't think it's a big deal.

  • My son is 25 months and knows some colors and is starting to know some numbers. I think the best way to help your son to learn is to make it fun! For learning the colors we go around the house and collect things of a certain color and put it into our color box. I make it into a game and we run around as fast as we can to collect things. We also have sorted m&m into colors and painted snowman pictures certain colors. Sing the ABC's and songs with the numbers. Have him trace the numbers with markers or line up his cars and count them. Anything that is fun!
