Create a Butterfly for Batches of Butterflies

Batches of Butterflies
February 10 – May 30, 2009

HFVSLogo-Butterfly.jpgThe Eric Carle Museum in Amherst, MA invites friends, families, and schools throughout the country and abroad to create their own butterflies to flutter in the Museum. Celebrate the caterpillar, who for 40 years has crept into the hearts of millions of readers through his journey of hope from “a tiny and very hungry caterpillar” to a “beautiful butterfly.”

How it works:

  • Create your butterfly out of 8 ½ x 11 card stock
  • Design your butterfly using color, shape, and/or messages of hope
  • Mail to The Carle:
    Batches of Butterflies, The Eric Carle Museum, 125 West Bay Road, Amherst, MA 01002

All butterflies received by March 15, 2009 will flutter throughout our Great Hall from March 20 to May 31, 2009.

    Batches of Butterflies

    In celebration of the Caterpillar’s 40th anniversary, The Carle invited friends, families, and schools throughout the country and abroad to create their own butterflies to flutter in the Museum. On view in the Great Hall until May 31, these “batches of butterflies” attest to the fondness felt for this tiny, very hungry caterpillar, who for 40 years has crept into the hearts of millions of readers

    I’m going to suggest my daughters girl scout troupe participate in this project. And then make a field trip to the museum to see their installation. I think they will realy enjoy it. – Thanks!
