I was Thinking ....... What a wonderful thing to create!

1,500,000 innocent Children died in the Holocaust

In an effort to remember them, Holocaust Museum Houston is collecting 1.5 million handmade butterflies.

The butterflies will eventually comprise a breath-taking exhibition, currently scheduled for Spring 2013, for all to remember. The Museum has already collected an estimated 400,000 butterflies.

I was thinking that maybe some of you would like to creat a beautiful butterfly and send it the museum. You can create as many handmade arts-and-crafts butterflies as possible. This project may be completed by all ages as individuals or groups.
  1. Butterflies should be no larger than 8 inches by 10 inches.
  2. Butterflies may be of any medium the artist chooses, but two-dimensional submissions are preferred.
  3. Glitter and all glitter-related products should not be used.
  4. Food products (cereal, macaroni, candy, marshmallows or other perishables) also should not be used.
  5. If possible, e-mail a photograph of your butterflies, to

Mail or bring your butterflies to:
