#CulturedKids April 2017

Happy Easter holiday! How have you been spending your April so far? We’ve been skiing in the Austrian Alps; our first ski holiday as a family. I’ll be taking the next few days to recover, and trawl through all my pictures and videos from the trip.

There’s still time for a little culture, though – this very morning, we’re off to see Roald Dahl’s The Twits, at the Rose Theatre, Kingston-Upon-Thames. The show features in our London fun for book-loving families post, which is my contribution to this month’s linky. I’m very much looking forward to reading yours.

Last month’s linky saw the usual mixture of posts from far and wide, with tons of suggestions for thought-provoking, fun family activities. My favourites this time around happened to be three from the UK. First was My Boys’ Club‘s review of The Twits at the Northern Stage, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne (possibly because it got me all excited about our own trip to see the show!)

The second post I wanted to flag up was by Sloely, on Small Free London Museums. Let’s face it, day trips and cultural activities can often be pricey, so it’s useful to have a list of places where there’s no entrance fee. And this post unearths some real gems, some of which I’d never heard of. Collection of moles’ brains, anyone?

And then, I felt I ought to mention this brilliant post by Untold Morsels on one of London’s most well-known museums: the British Museum. Katy comes at it from an interesting angle, though, picking out the highlights, with tips and suggestions on how to make sure the place doesn’t become too overwhelming for small visitors.

        Have signed up! A question though: would you like only pins from this linky, or are any appropriately themed pins ok?

          Any are fine, just so long as they’re culture-related. Thanks for joining in!
