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

A bleak January week when outdoor time becomes ever more important. 

Lets face it, mid January isn’t the most exciting time for outdoor fun, however our bodies and more importantly our kids bodies still need  some fresh air and to run off some energy. It releases happy hormones and makes the January blues fade – I promise! I was hoping for some snow fun but that has eluded us as usual, however the kids have still got filthy in rugby matches, jumped on the trampoline and helped around the farm. Whether you have Christmas holiday posts to share or managed a few hours out this week, I hope you will join me on the link up below. 

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.
    • Unheated covered areas like a barn or tent count as outdoors.
