Book: Andy Warhols’s Colors
Activity: Color Exploration with Fine Motor and Movement
Here’s our book and activity designed for a 16 month old. Culturebaby adored this bright and beautiful board book at this age. It’s been a real favorite in our household. Toddlers love both animals and color and this gorgeous little book uses these toddler-friendly topics and a catchy rhyming text to introduce to work of artist Andy Warhol.
To accompany the book we made a color matching sensory activity with different colored and textured ribbons on a ring for the little one to explore and locate in the different pages and artworks. We also additionally included one little pot of play-dough for each color so that the parent can supervise and work with the baby to create their own little versions of each of the colored animals. Again, Culturebaby loved exploring play-dough at this age and starting to shape and manipulate the material. We hope our little book buddy enjoys it and look forward to hearing about it…

Book: 10 Dirty / Clean Pigs
Activity: I sent “10 dirty/clean pigs” by Carol Roth & Pamela Paperone. I added a card suggesting that the enclosed items ( a flannel, a shower “puff”, a nailbrush and a powder brush) could be used to play out the book with the family’s own plastic toys and soaps. (Or to play with the “water” design paper if that was needed indoors…I thought that would be safest to deal with allergy-potential!
