Your little one can make out and name basic shapes like circle, triangle, rectangle and square. He will be able to draw these basic shapes and incorporate 2 or more shapes in his drawings. For instance, if he is drawing a person, he will make the face, a circle and body, a square.
What you need to know
Get your child to do activities where he experiments with colours, shapes and sizes. For instance, making a Christmas card.
Sorting shapes and grouping similar ones will help him know the difference. You can also add to the learning by teaching him about sides in shapes. For instance, sorting using different shaped blocks and grouping the similar shapes.
