Country Kids 30/01/21

Welcome back to Country Kids. I hope that you are all keeping well and coping as best you can with lockdown restrictions. January has felt like a very long month here and I am sure we are far from alone in that. It was lovely to get some snow here last weekend and it made for a welcome break in the monotony of lockdown life. Have you had any snow over the past couple of weeks?


Being able to get outside for walks, especially in quiet spots, helps makes everything feel a little more bearable at the moment. Our outdoor family adventures might be very limited right now, but it’s still good to be able to get outside. If you’ve managed to enjoy some outdoor time as a family recently or have any posts about outdoor fun that we can enjoy during lockdown, I’d love to read about it.



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.

The snow here only lasted for a day, but we certainly made the most of it while we had it. I’m sharing seven snow-day activities that we enjoyed while the snow was here. Hopefully we’ll get another opportunity this winter for some snowy outdoor fun.
