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.
Well I for one am happy to see January behind us and the welcome longer days February arrive. It may still be chilly outdoors and the weather very mixed, but with longer daylight hours the opportunity to make a little outdoor time increases. Here on the farm we are waiting for our first lambs to be born and hoping the fields will soon begin to dry and and new season grass start to grow for the animals. The end of this coming week will see our half term guests arrive and after a couple of quiet weeks I feel ready for the buzz they will bring. I have lots planned for our guests and family over the half term and hope to share this with you here on Country Kids over the coming weeks. I hope you will have your own adventures to share too. As ever the link up is below.
