Country Kids is the original outdoor family fun linky designed to:
“Encourage family fun outdoors, in an age where technology and screens are such a draw to a sedentary indoor life”
Welcome back if you are a regular to Country Kids and if you are new please join in. You will find plenty of inspiration for enjoying outdoor space and please do share your own adventures. We support the National Trust 100 things to do before you are 11¾ along with all other ideas for family fun outside.
We have seen frosty mornings and sunny days here on the farm. This family have just found an egg in one of our chicken coops but they are thin on the ground at this time of year. With the cold of winter the animals need hay, straw and mineral supplements for the winter season meaning there is a lot of work for farmer Nick and his little helpers. That said we try to keep animal feeding to an hour for our guests in winter to keep little ones from becoming too cold. I hope you have managed a little family fun outdoors with these dry crisp winter days.
