#CulturedKids: join in with a brand new linky

Welcome to the first ever #CulturedKids monthly linky!

Here at the Pigeon Pair and Me, I often write about our family trips to cultural places: the theatre, museums, galleries, castles, historic places….and of course a lot of you do, too. I enjoy coming across bloggers and writers who cover arts and culture, as well as visiting my old favourites in the blogosphere. I thought it was high time there was a place for us all to gather together.

Every month I’ll either feature a blogger who writes about arts and culture; highlight an upcoming event that’s not to be missed; or both. To kick off for the first ever month of #CulturedKids, here’s Jenni Fuchs, a Berlin-based blogger who writes at Museum Diary – and whose elder son (aka #MuseumBoy) had visited 20 different museums in four different countries by the time he was one year old.

“Hello, I’m Jenni. I’ve been working in museums for over 15 years, and have been blogging about museums since 2009. My mission in life is to show how interesting and fun museums can be! Since becoming a mother to my two boys – who both visited their first museum at only a couple of weeks old – I’ve been encouraging other families to take their children to museums and to not be afraid of venturing from the tried and tested.

I take my boys almost everywhere, from fully interactive family museums, to fairly traditional art galleries, and everything in between. There’s no better feeling than having a reader tell me my blog gave them that extra little push they needed to try something new with their kids. My favourite post on the blog – and also one of my readers’ all time favourites – is a heart felt piece about taking your kids to museums early and often. I also really enjoy my ‘Meet a Museum Family’ and ‘Kids in Museums Book Club’ series, both of which have had a very positive response.”

Inspiring stuff, eh. I love Jenni’s blog – it’s one of my all-time favourites. Do pop over and visit if you haven’t already done so.

CulturedKids will go live here on the Pigeon Pair and Me, the first Friday of every month – and will be open for ten days. Each month, I’ll round up some of my favourite posts from the month before (so it’s worth returning even if you haven’t posted, just to get new ideas for things to do!).

Here’s how it works:

    nice Linky! can you tweet a few reminders about it? It’s easy to miss the Linkys that are monthly.
