Hello and welcome to my #funseekingkids round-up week 36. Hope you’ve all had a good week. The lurgy has finally got me so I’ve been pretty quiet on Instagram this week. We haven’t done that much exciting and I even went out on Tuesday afternoon to our favourite spot, Pensthorpe, and didn’t take a single photo! I don’t have the energy to think about blogging or Instagram at the moment. Matt had it first so I blame him, but really, it’s unavoidable. Just want to get it out of the way before Christmas is finally here. Speaking of the festivities, I’ve got some lovely Christmas pics included again this week. We are getting our tree tomorrow so I’m sure I’ll feel more in the Christmas spirit then. So, onto this week…
For those of you who don’t know, #funseekingkids is an Instagram hashtag set up by me and Alana who blogs at Burnished Chaos. Anyone can use the hashtag when they post photos of kids having fun. Each week we share our favourite four images on our blogs and on our Instagram feeds. If you’re a blogger we’ll link over to your blog too. But don’t worry you don’t need to be a blogger to join in. If you’re new to the community please do share the love and let your friends know, we’d love to see some more feeds join us each week.
#funseekingkids round-up week 36
1. My first choice is from Lucy who blogs at Real Mum Reviews. I love the look of this tunnel – I think there’s something in Norwich similar and we are due to visit it over the next few days. Miss Belle loves looking at the Christmas lights so we’re really looking forward to it. Thanks Lucy for joining us.
Last week on one of the coldest evenings of the year, we wrapped up like Michelin men and headed off to the #brumbloggers networking event at Birmingham Botanical Gardens and were lucky enough to be some of the first to experience their Christmas Light Trail. A beautifully magical and festive experience for the whole family. Check out our full review on the blog (link in bio) #christmasatthebotanicalgardens
2. My second choice is this beautiful one from Kelly. I had this sort of image in my head that I’d love to capture of Miss Belle when we do our tree. I suspect mine might not be so good!! You can read more from Kelly at her great blog, Bringing Up Georgia.
3. My third choice is another beautiful one this time from Katie at Mummy In A Tutu. Obviously the tutu love runs in the family! A gorgeously styled and edited shot, I couldn’t not include it.
Dance. I’ve danced for as long as I can remember. At one point I even got to dance on a west end stage. I miss it now and as soon as I find the time or make the time I’m sure I’ll be back in the studio. It would appear I’ve passed my dancing bug onto my little one who will dance to any music. At any time. In any place. So if you’re going to dance why not do it in style. @dancegearuk sent Alyssa this gorgeous custom made red tutu which we’ve themed into a little red riding hood shoot here. There’ll be a post on the blog in the next few days where you can see it all up close. It would appear that it’s not just Mummy in a TuTu anymore….
4. And finally my last choice is from a new feed that I’ve found thanks to this community. This picture made me laugh because we’ve all done it haven’t we? Even us grown ups…! Thanks Charlotte for joining in with our hashtag. You can find out more about Charlotte at She Sees.

Finally, I always add one of my favourite photos of Alana’s. Her kids did some great Christmas tree decorating and I’m impressed Alana lets them have fairly free reign. I think I’m too much of a control freak to allow Miss Belle to go to town completely on ours… Maybe next year!
I’ve been meaning to post this for a couple of days. We got our tree up on Sunday and it’s definitely starting to feel Christmassy round here. Other than the lights, which I put on first, I gave the kids free reign and I’m actually pretty impressed. If you scroll across you’ll see it got off to a worrying start when L piled the beads and ribbons in one spot but M smoothed it out and they did a great job. I did have to add a few baubles to the highest branches that M couldn’t reach mind. What about you? Do you have your tree up yet? Do you let the kids go nuts or do prefer a perfect tree?
So that’s my #funseekingkids round-up week 36. If you don’t follow these accounts already go over and show them some love. Make sure you head over to Alana’s blog to check out her favourite four posts too. Thanks so much again to everyone who’s taken part. Keep tagging your photos of your kids having fun and playing with the hashtag. I’ll see you all next week. x
