Welcome to the new look #CulturedKids 6 April 2018. Well not so much a new look but a new line up. Founder, Nell from Pigeon Pair and Me has stepped aside but four other bloggers have stepped in. Meet Emma from the Bavarian Sojourn, Megan who is one half of Truly Madly Kids, Scarlett who is the Diary of a Londoness and ZenBabyTravel. Pop over and visit them after you’ve linked up! We have also decided to make #CulturedKids fortnightly rather than monthly. Other than that, everything remains the same ….. we want to read your posts about days out to historic homes, visits to museums or trips to the theatre.
This March a whole slew of London museums unveiled new exhibitions. Family days out at the beach feature in the Great British Seaside at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. Over at Tate Modern, Picasso 1932 Love Fame Tragedy shows just both how prolific and sexy Picasso was, most of the works on display were painted in one year and all them ooze sensuality. One of my all time favourite authors is featured in Charmed Lives in Greece at the British Museum which celebrates the lives and friendships of three artists who settled in Greece after World War 2.
Nell’s favourite posts from last months #CulturedKids were:
Boston Ballet opens its Spring Season by Celebrate the Weekend. People in Boston, this Spring, will have the choice of two productions: one a suite of modern dance set to music ranging from Bach to Glass and the more traditional Romeo and Juliet.
A Christmas Carol at Windsor Castle by Hilary Style. Hilary was lucky enough not only to see an amazing production of A Christmas Carol but also to go on a tour of Windsor Castle when it was all decorated for Christmas. Just a teeny weeny bit jealous of this!
Exploring the Tower of London with Kids by Go Live Young. I knew all about seeing the Crown Jewels but didn’t know that you could have a tour with one of the Yeomen Warders or Beefeaters, definitely worth returning to the Tower for.
My own favourite was Family Day Out: Review of National Wool Museum Wales by Welshcakes and Wellies. I confess to being crafty and love wool. Balls of wool, bolts of fabric and of course the fluffy sheep that it all comes from, so a museum devoted to wool sounds like my idea of heaven.
What are you up to for the Easter holidays? My teens headed off up to the Peak District with Explorers over the Easter weekend, they had huge day packs laden with survival bags and rations. They are back safe and sound with only one case of hypothermia between them! Now they are back home we plan to visit the National Army Museum and its excellent new exhibition about the special forces. Please do link your posts up to this week’s linky below. We’ll be looking out for any images shared on Instagram using the #CulturedKids.
Here’s how it works:
