Flash cards!! I just bought basic flash cards (colors, shapes, animals, things that rhyme) for my 15 month old. I thought for sure it was waaay too soon to bring them out. But we just played with them, no stress or pressure, just playing. And no joke, but the end of the day she knew which one was red.
I would lay out the colors and ask "wheres red?" After she found it I would lay out the shapes and ask "where is red now?" and she would pick up the red colored shape! :)
