Country Kids 02/05/20

Welcome back to Country Kids. I hope that you are all keeping well and safe during this time.


While we’re still in lockdown, Country Kids will be running as a fortnightly linky. I’m continuing to keep the focus on activities that can be done in the garden or close to home.  So if you have any outdoor fun in the garden to share, or outdoor learning activities then I’d love to read all about them. As with the last linky, old and new posts are welcome. You can also add posts that have been added to any pre-lockdown Country Kids linky. Hopefully this will help provide us all with some ideas for ways in which we can continue to have fun outside.


Thank you to everyone who linked up last month. It was lovely to read all your posts and get lots of ideas for ways of enjoying outdoor fun in the garden. I particularly liked An Ordinary Family of 5’s challenge to do #OneThingOutside each day in April.


We’ve been trying to take our learning outside as much as possible and Sophie has been enjoying having an outdoor classroom. I’m sharing a post about making a wormery, which was one of our ‘Muddy Puddles’ activities.
