Country Kids 26/09/20

Welcome back to Country Kids. I hope that you are all keeping well and safe. The weather has shifted here this week and there is a definite autumnal feel to the air now. We made the most of those last few days of warmer weather though and are now ready for some autumn adventures, although we’ve still got a couple of late summer ones left to share. If you’ve got any outdoor adventures – summer or autumn ones to share, please do link them up to Country Kids.



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 five 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.

A nature hunt is such a great way to make a walk a little more interesting. Sophie enjoyed having things to look out for on a recent visit to Chiltern Open Air Museum.

  • 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.

Featured post

I enjoyed reading Thirsty Daddy’s post about his children’s experiences of camp this year. It might have been a different way of doing camp this year, but it sounded like it was still an enjoyable one.

  1. Hey Louise, it’s great to connect and thank you for hosting! I love your mission. Our five kiddos spend a lot of time outdoors and apparently that is becoming increasingly unusual. Our neighbors often report to us how much they enjoy seeing our tribe exploring and having fun.

    Thank you for the added encouragement to get outside and avoided that sedentary life.

    1. Lovely to have you link up Jed. It’s sad that seeing children spending time outdoors is becoming more unusual. It’s so important for them to have plenty of outdoor time. I’m glad your children enjoy exploring and having fun outdoors.
