As you've read on this space before, we spend most of our days curled up together to read as a family. Over the past 3 years Harper's love for reading has grown daily and her imagination is always in full swing. Last year we made this sweet craft to celebrate this tiny caterpillar and all of the joy it has brought into our home and today, we're celebrating once again! Eric Carle has partnered up with Gymboree to bring a playful and colorful line to families around the world to spark the imagination in not only the children, but in us parents too! I am reminded daily of the joys from my childhood that books brought as I sit and read with Harper and with this clothing line by Eric Carle she can dream and explore while enjoying his stories too.
This new collection that has hit stores is based around two of our favorite books, The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? Harper absolutely LOVES her new pajama's and has requested them every night since we brought them home! Colors, creativity and adventure fill all of these amazing books and we are so thrilled to have them on clothing now! How adorable are they!?
Inspired by Eric Carle’s Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See, from 9/2-9/30, we will be hosting a photo contest, where we are encouraging parents to help their little ones take a picture of what they see. Entrants can submit a photo via Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr or via our designated direct photo upload site, using the hashtag, #WhatDoYouSee.
For even more fun, download our iPhone app so you and your little one can add some Eric Carle fun to your photos and play a caterpillar game! Entrants of the #WhatDoYouSee contest will have the chance of winning one of ten Eric Carle gift baskets including: A House for Hermit Crab book, a signed copy of The Very Hungry Caterpillar book, figurines, stickers, The Very Hungry Caterpillar Sippy Cup, Chunky Colored Pencils, Match and Munch Game, Place Mats Book, and Stage & Play (Valued at $144.99).
The winners will be announced 9/30/14!
