Country Kids 14/08/21

Summer is such a great time for getting out and about on adventures and making memories. I love discovering new places to visit, enjoying a rare trip to the beach or just sitting out in the garden with the laptop watching the children play. Sophie’s been gradually working her way through her list of summer activities and ticking them off. I love how many of the things on her list are simple things like getting the paddling pool out, pond dipping, flying a kite or having a teddy bears’ picnic. What fun outdoor adventures have you been enjoying over the summer holidays? I’d love to read any posts you’ve shared about outdoor fun so please do come along and link them up.


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 linky opens on a Saturday each week and stays open for twelve days, so there’s plenty of time to link up. It’s a great place to share outdoor posts and find inspiration for future outdoor adventures and the Country Kids community is a supportive and welcoming one.

We recently had a week away at Coombe Mill. This was our third stay there but the first time we’ve visited during the summer. The children loved joining in with the feed run each morning and we had a lovely holiday. You can find out more about why we love holidays at Coombe Mill in my linked post.
