6 clever instagram accounts you should be following

by ParentCo. May 29, 2015

Perfectly filtered selfies and forgettable shots of lattes and lunches are the currency of instagram. But every once in awhile, you stumble across someone who's truly worth following. If your feed is becoming a total snooze fest, check out some of my current favorites. Live From Snacktime (@livefromsnacktime) highlights the most hilarious and perfectly bizarre quips overheard by an anonymous NYC kindergarten teacher. Somehow this brand of humor never gets old.

Revenge never smelled so sweet 🌸

Miriam Sicherman (@closetarcheology) documents the treasures her fourth graders find in the floorboards of the NYC East Village Elementary school. What started as one student's treasure hunt has become a class wide lesson in history and archeology.
Sad Animal Facts (@sadanimalfacts) is the brainchild of Brooke Barker, an illustrator who somehow regularly charms me with depressing information.

Kirsten Rickert (@KirstenRickert) Never have I clicked into this mother/artist/cyborg's account and made it one scroll of the finger before mumbling "oh, fer f*cks sake." Between adorning her strikingly beautiful daughter's in things like swim caps that she's made of actual cherry blossoms or crowns out of icicles (come ON. What is this? Game of Thrones?) she makes Martha Stewart look lazy. And just when I thought she couldn't get more ridiculous, she rescues a bluejay a follows a fawn IN THE SAME WEEK. I just can't look away.
Jory Raphael (@sensibleworld) Notabli co-founder and designer, I'm including this guy not only because he's sitting six feet away from me right now, but because his ongoing icon project is pretty fantastic.

Josh Hara (@yoyoha) is a cartoonist whose coffee cup panels bring almost as much joy to my life as coffee itself. Ok. That's not true. But close.
