Country Kids 20th October 2018

What a difference a week makes. This week I'm finding it more Autumnal as the weather plays with our minds and questions do we dare get out and possibly face a soaking?! Fortunately it has held off and the only soaking we've received is that from a bath or in my youngests case a  good amount of water play at preschool and then again in the bathroom sink! 


Country Kids 20th October 2018


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”

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.
