This study seeks to determine the percentages of color preferences among preschool children,as well as to ascertain whether children‘s perception of forms is greater than their perception of colors. Thestudy sample consists of l 18 children ranging in age from 2.5 to 4.5 years, both male and female. A numberof gauges of color and form similarity prepared by the researchers were used, and, using the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test and two-way analysis of variation, the following results were obtained:
1- Variation exists in children’s color preference.
2- Children 2 .5 to less than 3.5 years of age tend to distinguish on the basis of color rather than form.
3- Children 3.5 to 4.5 years of age tend to distinguish on the basis of forms rather than color.
