Feed Run Fun
Our daily tractor rides to feed the animals are the highlight of a holiday at Coombe Mill for the children. It makes my day when our own children come along and help out too. I love to see them demonstrating to the younger children how to feed and handle the animals. This builds the confidence for our younger visitors and as the week goes by everyone is keen to have a go from stroking to feeding and even driving the tractor!
The morning feed fun is a great way for the children on holiday to make friends and learn from each other
After an hour and a half on the farm everyone is keen to get back for a rest and a clean up and plan the rest of the day.
What have you been up to out and about recently with the kids? Whether the garden, the park or an outing in the country, please take a camera and join me here to support fresh air and healthy outdoor fun for children.

A Taste of Summer
This week has felt like Summer is just around the corner which makes being out and about enjoying some good old fresh air so much more pleasant. We took the chance to enjoy the last ice skating of the winter season at the Eden project at the weekend. It was so lovely and mild that the children happily spent all afternoon on their favourite outdoor play places and once again I was left with just 10 minutes in the biomes before our skating time was up. Much as I am determined to explore the biomes properly one day I am also loathed to bring them inside when they are having so much fun. We have annual tickets so there is always another day!
The Eden project has posts all along the walkways with fun signs for the children challenging them to skip, jump, hop, crawl and such like; mine happily followed the instructions along to the ice skating tent you can see ahead of them.
I have so enjoyed seeing all your lovely pictures from the February Country Kids link up and it has been extremely hard to pick a favourite for the Coombe Mill Sun Hat this month but I have finally settled on this one from Nikki Thomas http://www.stressymummy.com/2012/02/hooray-for-sun.html because I love the look of that park and the fun the children had there. A huge thank you to all the lovely posts with some great Country outdoor play and learning.
Please keep the outdoor fun going and inspire each other by linking up here.
