Half term and our boys had some old friends round for the day. Fun and play for them and a lovely excuse for me to abandon work in favour of catching up on some mummy chat. On wondering out onto the farm to check on the boys, we found them just over the style from our deer field having a wonderful time in a grand tree climbing competition. I was mightily relieved they all made it down safely and very proud of myself for resisting the temptation to warn them off going EVEN higher, allowing them instead to trust their own judgement.
Hope you can come and support healthy outdoor play for children. From the garden to the beach, I would love you to join in with your snaps or video this week. Read more about Country Kids here
A family day out and the boys were soon absorbed in a game of 5 a-side, or 3 a side in our case! Fresh air, a football, open space and my boys are entertained, even Clio got stuck in there between her boisterous big brothers!
Everyone knows that playing outdoors and rushing around in the countryside is fun, healthy and affordable for children. From the garden to the park, woods or beach, organised clubs to family days out, children just love the freedom of the great outdoors. Country Kids is simply a chance to capture and share some of those special times and promote a healthy outdoor lifestyle.
