Through my child's eyes #4 // A link up for children's artwork and photos

Hello and welcome back to another Through my child's eyes. Last week we only had one brilliant link up from the lovely Christina at Ladybug home & design, but I am still determined to get more people involved! I have been doing a little bit of thinking about adding a challenge into this link up to make it a little bit more fun for children to take part in. Let me know in the comments below if you think this is a good idea to start next week. If people do say yes, I will let you know in advance what the first challenge is. At the moment my plan is set out colour tasks such as getting your children to photograph/ paint something blue and then the next week, something orange and so on. 

The linky
  • Please add my badge to your posts 
  • Link up your children's artwork or photos, with or without words is fine
  • It will run from Thursday 12am till Saturday
  • Can be old or new and as many as you like
  • When you add your link, please make sure they lead to your posts and not your blog's homepage. It may be difficult for me to find. 
  • Share your link up on twitter using #throughmychildeyes and tag me @gemma_stevens so I know to retweet and comment on your post. 
  • Try and comment on other posts in the link up. 
  • Feel free to link your Instagram photos too
  • Enjoy working together

Alfie's entry

This week, I wanted to show you a photo my eldest son Alfie took of a seagull looking out to sea. The seagull just stood there watching his friends flying over head and Alfie managed to take this shot before the bird flew off to join them. I let Alfie play around on pic monkey with filters and exposure but with a little help from me. We settled on a little bit of cross process to bring out the mood of the scene. 

Now it's your turn. 
I look forward to seeing the photos or artwork your children have created recently. If your child is too young to hold a camera, be creative and maybe take a photo from their eye levels, from their prams for example. Please help me make #throughmychildseyes a success by sharing the link up across your social media and by adding my badge to your posts.

An InLinkz Link-up



  1. I think this is a great idea, although I have no little ones at the house to participate.

    Maybe of you 'advertise' (participate) in some of the many 'Mommy' blogs that have linkups--like Wordless Wednesday, you can get more links.

  2. Bless him, Alfie must have kept to still and quiet so as to not scare Mr seagull away! Lovely idea for a linky. I'm always finding little snaps on my phone and wondering where they came from! xx
