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.
Here at Coombe Mill our runner ducklings are almost big enough to be let out into Jurassic Park with the older ducks and chickens. For now they are enjoying their last few days of safety indoors… Well safe apart from being chased and cuddled each morning by the children that is! This is just one of the highlights each day on the farm. I hope your week has been a good one and you have some exciting adventures to share 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.
Despite the title, both countryside and urban outdoor adventures are welcome.
Unheated covered areas like a barn or tent count as outdoors.

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.
We have 1 guilty blogger link dumping this week, although do remember I comment count on Thursday after lunch so get your comments in before then if you want them to be counted. There was a distinct lack of comments all round last week, please be supportive, I know it is busy in the last weeks of term for everyone.
