This is a sponsored blog post. I received compensation from Gymboree. The opinions and text are all mine.
One of my favorite parts of our day is just before bed. Dinner is done, baths are done, and pajamas are on. The sun stretches its rays well into bedtime. Being a mom of two boys, I know it’s not always easy to get them both settled down, especially with Søren’s age. Our favorite thing to do at quiet time is read. When Aiden was little one of his most cherished possessions was The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. He was even able to recite the book from memory before he could read.
I’m so very happy to be able to share with you that Eric Carle has teamed up with Gymboree to create an adorable line of pajamas and playwear. They’ve also created themed kid-friendly activities including coloring and activity sheets, activities, an iPhone app, and a contest. I’ve included details about the contest below.
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 (Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) $144.99).
The winners will be announced at the end of the contest period, which is 9/30/14.
