Country Kids 5th August 2017

Posted on August 4th, 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. 

Country Kids 5.8.17

 Bring back summer! 

 After a promising start at the beginning of the week with sunshine and beach trips, the weather certainly took a turn for the worse in Cornwall. I don’t often concede to indoor time but Wednesday saw the kids enjoying an indoor trampoline park and me taking the 17 year old for a driving lesson. Thankfully that was the only wash out day and the farm rides have been largely dry and the train able to run in the evenings.  I hope you have a managed a few adventures too and will 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.
