Welcome to Country Kids from Coombe Mill

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. 

Welcome to Country Kids from Coombe Mill

October has brought some wonderful sunny days to Cornwall. This week has been beautiful again and the older half term children have loved the freedom of the farm to explore. However they are also kind and inclusive with the younger children, showing them how to handle the animals. I do love the sense of togetherness that builds on the daily tractor feed runs during the week. 

Halloween is also a big event for Coombe Mill. This week I’m sharing a few Halloween preparations with a nature theme. Next week will be all about the day itself and how we turn it in to a full programme of farm activities. I hope you’ll join me here and see how we got on.
