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.

 6 years of Country Kids! 

As we move into January I realise Country Kids is moving into it’s 7th year! My kids have gone from kids to practically gown ups in that time but the linky is still one I’m passionate about and so it continues. Essentially outdoor family adventures make memories and healthy happy families. I hope you will stay with me on the outdoor journey for another year. Whether you are taking time out at the park, the beach, the woods or just frolicking in the garden it is time well spent. Capture those moments and share them on the link up below.   

Happy New Year!
