Country Kids 30/05/20

Welcome back to Country Kids. I hope that you are all keeping well and safe during this time. The weather has certainly been glorious over the last week or so, hasn’t it? We’ve been making the most of the sunshine and have been spending most of our days out in the garden.


While we’re still restricted with our outdoor adventures, Country Kids will be continue to run as a fortnightly linky. However, as we’re now able to travel a little further afield for our outdoor exercise, Country Kids is now open again for all posts about outdoor family fun.  I hope that you will join me in sharing your outdoor activities and ideas for ways in which we can continue to enjoy outdoor fun while maintaining social distancing.


Thank you to everyone who linked up last time. This week’s featured post is from Four Acorns who shared their experience of building a pizza oven in their garden which was a real family effort.


While we’ve been in lockdown, the tuff tray has come in handy for home learning activities and small world play. This week I’m sharing some of the activities that we’ve used our tuff tray for.

I will continue to comment on posts linked up and share them on Twitter.  I will also pin all posts linked up to the Country Kids board on Pinterest.
