Country Kids 24th February

Posted on February 23rd, 2018

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 100 things to do before you are 11¾ along with all other ideas for family fun outside. 

 

Are we in the Arctic? 

Burrr! I think the UK has moved to the Arctic this week! I am so happy to see frosty mornings, sunsets and blue skies again but oh my it is cold! Never has warm hats and gloves been more necessary but it has been wonderful for drying out the farm after it became so wet and muddy last week with little feet trampling the same patches. If you have been on half term this week you’ve certainly been the weather winners! I hope you have a tale to 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.
  • 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.

My top commenters from last week:

  1. Merlinda from Pixiedusk who commented on 18 posts.
  2. Shiju from Cranium Bolts who commented on 17 posts.
  3. Emma from Crazy with Twins who commented on 14 posts.

Thank you no link dumpers again this week! 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. Also remember if you comment anonymously on a post I won’t know who you are, there were two this week but I’m afraid I didn’t know who to credit the comments to. 

Rockfish kindly sponsor Country Kids

You Could Win with Rockfish Wellies and Country Kids from Coombe Mill 

I am delighted to have Rockfish as the sponsor for Country Kids. Rockfish are a local Cornish company specializing in stylish quality wellingtons for all the family. We have been offering their country wellies in our borrow room here on the farm for over a year and they are always popular for their style, comfort and durability.
