Country Kids 14/11/20

Welcome back to Country Kids. I hope that you are all keeping well and safe and coping with being in lockdown once more. I’m thankful that our outdoor activity is a little less restricted this time around than it was previously and we are still able to enjoy visiting some of our favourite outdoor spots. Being able to get outdoors and spend time surrounded by the beautiful autumnal colours of nature helps make the restrictions feel a little more bearable. If you’ve been sharing any posts about getting out and about as a family, please do join in and link up with Country Kids – I’d love to read about your outdoor adventures.



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 enjoyed getting out and about hunting for scarecrows over half-term. It gave us a focus and helped encourage us to get out for a walk each day – even when the weather wasn’t quite so good – and even inspired us to make our own scarecrow.

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.
