Posted on June 30th, 2017

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 #50 things along with all other ideas for family fun outside.

 Catching the Magic

 This little one is holding out her hands to receive a duckling from Farmer Nick. I love the first day of farm fun with our guests; the expressions and wonder at the animals is so special. While the activities continue all week, and the children grow in confidence, there is nothing quite like the magic of the first day. I missed that magic this week as Farmer Nick and I have been on holiday in Greece. Everyone seemed like experts when we returned for the feed run on Wednesday and what happened to the sun? We left in a heatwave and returned to rain. I hope summer will return over the weekend. Whether you have been sheltering from the rain or the heat, home or abroad, I hope you have a few adventures to share 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.
  •  Please 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 considered for winning the lovely Rockfish Wellies.
  • Linked 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.
