“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. 


Country Kids 18th February 2017

Share your half term fun here

I hope you have enjoyed a good half term week and a much needed break from the school routine. We have split the week between here on the farm with our holiday guests and visiting family in London and Sussex. That’s a whole lot of travelling in a  short space of time, but it has given us a chance to enjoy some family adventures out and about which I will be sharing here over the coming weeks. I hope you have managed time away from screens this past week with an adventure or two to share with me on the link up below.

  • Post must be predominantly outdoors such as in the garden, the park, the woods or the beach with crafting, learning, exploring or playing.
