I’m happy to be taking part in the Multicultural Kid Blogs instagram blog hop event today. If you’re not familiar with Multicultural Kid Blogs, this is a great group of bloggers from all around the world celebrating diversity, bilingualism and different cultures.

I’m proud to be part of this, and hoping to raise kids with curiosity about the world – to travel and appreciate other cultures, to respect others and to be proud of their own heritage. For any new readers, our family background is a mix of Irish (my side) and Sri Lankan (dad’s side) and we live in London. We live in London and teach our kids Arabic at home.

A great way to keep up with all of the Multicultural Kid Bloggers is through Instagram. You can follow the #mkbkids hashtag to see pictures from all the MKB members, and from any of you who decide to join in with us! I love Instagram as such a quick and easy way to share moments from our days. We don’t have the chance to blog every craft, every outing or activity or every little moment so instagram can give you those little extra behind the scenes moments! You can follow me on Instagram at PlayroomBlog
