#ExplorerKids - Round-up #42

Another week, another great bunch of photographs on #ExplorerKids - I actually found it very hard to only choose four favourites.

For those new to this page - I co-created the #ExplorerKids hashtag with Su from Ethan and Evelyn - we wanted a place where people could share pictures of their kids exploring and having adventures all over the world.

Since we started this hashtag over 12,300 pictures have been tagged on Instagram! Each Tuesday Su and I pick four favourites to feature so make sure you give @kippersandcurtains and @ethannevelyn a follow and we'll follow you back.

All are welcome to join in - just use the hashtag on Instagram and we'll find your photos. It's also a great place to find other accounts to follow.

My four favourites this week are:

Top left: @tales_of_boyhood - "Crowsfoot Glacier is perched over Bow Lake in the Canadian Rockies. We had to climb down from the viewing point and hike through some dense brush in order to get up close to that emerald water, but boy was it worth it."

Top right: @audreyapple77 - Jumping for joy in front of the pastel beach huts in Colchester, Essex.

Bottom left: @mumpacktravel - "Do you snorkel and if you have kids do they go with you? We started going to Lady Elliot Island in the southern Great Barrier Reef in Australia a few years ago. Emmie is fine with a snorkel but I've seen full face masks that look awesome and easy for kids to use if the mask and snorkel is a bit much for them. 🐢If you're in Australia or planning a trip there then Lady Elliot is amazing for snorkelling in a lovely shallow lagoon with lots of friendly turtles. It's one of Emmie's favourite places - and last time we were there we snorkelled on the other side of the island in deep water with huge manta incredible. 🐠🐟There are also small reef sharks and fish and so much marine life in the lagoon, turtles nest and hatchlings race for the ocean and there are so many birds! It's in the protected green zone and the resort operations have been developed to have minimal impact on the environment. Lots of young marine biology and conservation students and experts work there and are so great with kids - excellent role models who teach them about marine life and protecting the oceans."

Bottom right: @unhitchd - Descending into Oak Creek Canyon making our way out to The Window (the farthest point away in the picture) at Big Bend National Park in Texas.

Please keep tagging your photos - we really do enjoy looking at all of them and if you like what you see, give these accounts a follow.

Head over to Ethan and Evelyn to see Su's choices.
