Country Kids 08/09/18

Welcome to Country Kids. Country Kids was one of the first linkies I joined in when I started my blog four years ago. It helped inspire me to enjoy so many outdoor adventures with my girls and create happy memories. It is an honour to be taking over hosting Country Kids from Fiona at Coombe Mill who has hosted it for the last seven years, along with my co-hosts Helena from The Queen of Collage and Lucy from Kids of the Wild.

 

 

About Country Kids

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”

 

The Country Kids community is supportive and welcoming. It’s a great place to share outdoor posts and find inspiration for future outdoor adventures.

Sophie started school this week, but we enjoyed a couple more outdoor adventures before the summer ended. Her favourite adventure this summer has been our hunt for the Gromit Unleashed 2 sculptures in Bristol. I love how there are so many trails like this across the country during the summer.

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.
  • Both countryside and urban outdoor adventures are welcome.
  • Unheated covered areas like a barn or tent count as outdoors.
  • Please comment on the host posts and a minimum of 2 others of your choice.
  • If you use #CountryKids when commenting the post owner will know where you found them and hopefully come back to visit your post.
  • Please add the badge so that others know where they can link up.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The linky opens at 00:00 on Saturday and closes at 00:00 on Thursday.
