CLAIRE COOPER-KOVAC LOVE MAE MUM TO GIGI (2) I was told everything was a phase and when you’re deep in a moment that you think will break you–whether it's sleeping, feeding, tantrums or moods to remember it will pass. And that wine would also assist in this area. ADRIANA ESPERALBA BOBO CHOSES MUM TO TEO (7) + MOMO (3) To be in contact and respect the natural. Going on an excursion or camping in the mountain is an adventure as well as an opportunity for children to learn things. I remember when I was little I would spend hours with my brothers building huts and playing with whatever we could find in the woods–leaves, pinecones or trunks.

smartsy artsy kids

I travelled through the gallery, excitedly parking the pram before each painting so my baby could get a good, long look at the glowing Mexican colour schemes, the luminous skulls and Frida’s beautiful, stern face. What did he make of it? No idea. But, like me, he was mesmerised. If you’ve ever been to an art exhibition with a child, you’ll know the play-space potential of a large venue brimming with sensory stimulation.

rock that museum, kid

What is @rockthatmuseumkid about? The feed is all about kids and art. I believe in exposing children to art at an early age and teaching them that museums are fun. Many parents stay away from museums because of horror stories about angry museum guards, vandalized artworks or they simply don't see the point. With @rockthatmuseumkid, I try to give parents a very simple goal - take your kid to a museum and snap a photo of them in front of an artwork you like. Why did you start @ rockthatmuseumkid? I’ve always loved art. I grew up five minutes from the famous Louisiana Museum of Modern Art north of Copenhagen and we went there often. I have two little girls and I’ve taken them to museums and galleries since they were…
