I have been running this linky for over 4 years and would love you to join in. The objectives today are the same as they have always been:
“Encourage family fun outdoors, in an age where technology and screens are such a draw to a sedentary indoor life”
I have had a lovely following over the years with great involvement in the link up. I’ve never had to impose any rules apart from the outdoor nature of the post. It was always a given that visiting and commenting on others was a way to inspire fresh ideas for your own outdoor adventures and sharing was commonplace. However I’ve noticed recently that while some still adopt this philosophy, others are missing the point. To this end I am now clarifying what joining in with Country Kids involves:
Guidelines for Joining in:
Post must be predominantly outdoors such as in the garden, the park, the woods or the beach with crafting, learning, exploring or playing.
Despite the title, both countryside and urban outdoor adventures are welcome.
Large unheated covered areas like a barn or tent count as outdoors.
Comment on my host post and a minimum of 3 others of your choice.
If you use #CountryKids when commenting the post owner will know where your found them and hopefully come back to visit your post.
Please take my badge, without it you won’t be featured or considered for winning the lovely Rockfish Wellies.
Link posts should be written and made live within the last 2 months.
I understand sometimes you need to do catch up posts and write about something from a couple of months ago but the publish date should be within 2 months.
By joining in with Country Kids you’re giving me permission to email you weekly as a reminder.
There is no restriction on the number of posts that can be linked up, however please be sensible, if you have more than 3 consider linking over a few weeks.
Thank you to my top 3 commentators from last week:
I am delighted to announce that Rockfish have joined with Coombe Mill to sponsor the Country Kids link up. Rockfish are a local Cornish company specializing in stylish Wellingtons for all the family. We have been offering their country wellies in our borrow room here on the farm for over a year and they are always popular for their style, comfort and durability.
Each week my favourite #CountryKids posts, which include my badge or a link back here, will be considered for a free pair of Rockfish Wellies at the end of the month; the perfect way to enjoy the outdoors whatever the weather throws your way.

Post from last week in with a chance of the June Rockfish Wellies:
On top of the monthly free wellies, Rockfish has kindly offered everyone who enters #CountryKids this week a chance to win 25% off at their online store, a little extra incentive for some affordable outdoor fun.
