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 2.9.17

 Back to school! 

 So this is the week we make sure the uniforms are ready, the shoes polished, pack lunch things are in the fridge and the kids are ready to move up a class or school. It is this coming Tuesday for my own children and I have to say I’m not looking forward to the early starts and two schools runs again, however looking back we have had a wonderful summer both personally and as a business and I have plenty to share over the coming weeks.  I hope you are also ready for the new term  with an outdoor adventure or two in hand for the link up. 

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.

August Welly Winner

Congratulations to Clare at Flip Flops or Wellies who is our August Country Kids welly winner enjoying outdoor fun in the south west of England. I loved this post of Canoeing in Devon and Cornwall. It takes me back to our French adventures and makes me realise we should try it here too.  Do follow their journey over on their blog. 


Clare please email or DM me your choice of wellies showing in stock from the amazing Rockfish selection and a UK delivery address.
