Country Kids 10th December 2016

Posted on December 9th, 2016

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. 


So Christmas creeps ever closer and the days seem to turn to night before they’ve hardly got going. We are busy on the farm preparing for Christmas, the trees have been going into the properties and the outside lights are on. The photo above is my little helper Clio. She looks so grown up here but she is just 12…..going on 18! I still have the train tunnel to transform with Guy and then we will be ready to welcome our Christmas guests. I hope your preparations are going well and that you are finding some outdoor time, whether it is watching Christmas lights in the night sky or enjoying some day time play.

Warwick Castle seems to have something for all ages to enjoy and some beautiful Christmas Trees if you can make a Christmas visit as Over 40 Mum to One did.  

I do like a Christmas Tradition, visiting Santa is a classic and Odd socks and Lollipops have found just the place
