Country Kids 17/08/19

Welcome to Country Kids. Country Kids, originally hosted by Fiona at Coombe Mill, is all about sharing outdoor family fun. It was one of the first linkies I joined in when I started my blog four years ago and helped inspire me to enjoy so many outdoor adventures with my girls and create happy memories. I hope that you will join me and my co-host Lucy from Kids of the Wild in sharing your outdoor adventures and find inspiration here for new ones.

 

 

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.

 

 

Country Kids 17/08/19

We’ve just returned from our #JoGLEforJessica trip which I’ll be sharing on the blog over the next week. We broke up our journey from John O’Groats to Land’s End with a couple of nights in Glasgow where we had fun hunting for some of the sculptures on the Oor Wullie’s Big Bucket Trail.

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.

Featured post

Sometimes the simplest days out are the most fun. Fun as a Gran had a wonderful day out with her grandchildren enjoying a game of hide and seek in the woods and water play in the river. Simple childhood fun at its best.
