Country Kids from Coombe Mill

Craft activity in the Garden

A little time to play alone is great for bringing out the imagination in my children. Sometimes these afternoons fall apart at the seams when an alleged injustice sparks a major fall out. Last Sunday however they teamed up, squabble free, to create parachutes for their toys. 

Dashing in and out to collect their equipment, their enthusiasm and teamwork was a delight to watch. For once I let them be with no chasing to clear up until the fun was through.

Then it was up the fire escape to test out their invention again and again!



Country Kids June Sun Hat Winner

Every month I select a lucky winner from the previous month’s posts to receive one of our lovely Kids Coombe Mill Sun Hats. Doubles up well as a rain hat too this year! Recapping over the fantastic spread of outdoor fun ideas in June my chosen post is Full steam ahead from Single Married Mum, well done on a great post. Farmer Nick has been thinking of a train for Coombe Mill and showing him how much fun your children had on their day out has just pushed the project further up our “to do” list so thank you!

Joining In

Do please keep your outdoor adventures coming in. The linky is live every Saturday till Thursday. From a single photo to tails of a great day out, if it’s outdoors and with the kids I love it, just grab the badge and join the fun. If you can spare a few minutes to comment on what others are doing too, I’m sure they would appreciate it, and it could spark a new idea for you too.
