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 12.5.18

Summer calls and our chicks are growing  

It feels as though the temperatures are finally on the rise and the countryside has greened up for summer. Our little chicks Jessica, Sophie and Peanut are growing fast and it is now a chase around the pen to capture them for a cuddle in the mornings as their feathers form and they find their wings. Live is busy at Coombe Mill for the summer season but we wouldn’t want it any other way. It is lots of fun from dawn to dusk and I’m sharing one of our latest crazes from Activity Hour this week – Kindness rocks. Please come and join me with your adventures 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.

  • Linked posts should be written and made live within the last 2 months.
