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.
No January Blues allowed here
So Christmas festivities are well and truly behind us, but I refuse to allow the January Blues to set in. We are taking bookings for holidays now for the whole of 2018 from now till New Year and I’d love you to be one of the families we welcome to the farm. Even now in January we have a couple of families staying keeping Farmer Nick busy with his tractor rides in the morning and as a bonus for them the South West has enjoyed the best of the winter sun and warmth this week. In between work we have managed some family beach trips and night walks, though I’m yet to capture our stars well enough on camera to share. I hope you too are keeping the January blues at bay with some outdoor time, it is now medically proved to help, something I’ve always known. Please come along and share for fun 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.
We have 4 guilty bloggers link dumping this week, possibly the worst in 6 years, please go back if it is you. Do remember I comment count on Thursday after lunch so get your comments in before then if you want them to be counted and please approve your comments by then if they need moderating so I can see others leaving you the blog love. Comment counting is a huge drain on my time, I do it to encourage you to share inspiration with one another, please don’t abuse the link up.
I’d also like to give a massive Country Kids welcome to Olive Dragonfly who joined in for the first time this week.
