I can't believe that this Instagram community has been running for almost a year. There are over 17K fantastic images tagged on #ExplorerKids now.
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 17,100 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: @nicolepkost - "So this happened today!! My friends from the north finally sent us some snow! After we went outside and played it in for awhile it was gone an hour later. We definitely are thankful for a last winter's treat" ❄️❄️. This family live in the country in North Carolina.
Top right: @ouradventuresnearandfar - "Exploring the Quiver Tree Forest outside Keetmanshoop in Namibia was a great learning experience for the girls. The quiver tree got its name because the native bushmen used the branches of these interesting looking 'trees' to make quivers. They aren't really trees though but rather a tall branching species of aloe. These amazing plants can grow up to 350 years old!!"
Bottom left: @boyeatsworld - "Srei means Citadel of Women. It earned its name from the local belief that the reliefs on the temple are so delicate and beautiful that they could only have been carved by the hands of women. Whether or not that's true this little woman especially loved the pretty in pink temple, its divine decorations and kid-sized doorways." This fab photo was taken in Cambodia.
Bottom right: @hola_lafamily - "Fully submerge ourselves in the fantasy world of Middle-earth.There’s an abundance of movie magic nestled inside the green farmland💜 ➖ "If you really want to know what Middle Earth is based on, it's my wonder and delight in the earth as it is, particularly the natural earth." Wow, this is my dream... I am a huge Lord of the Rings fan.
Please do go and give these accounts a follow, such inspirational photos.
Su has also picked four favourites which you can read about on her blog Ethan and Evelyn.

Here is one of my pictures from the weekend - there were lots of squelchy mud patches in the woods. Fin decided to put his hands in them and chase the girls around!
