Wild wishes from me and welcome to Country Kids, the outdoor family linky co-hosted by Louise from Little Hearts Big Love and Helena from Queen of Collage and me at Kids of the Wild. We’ve taken over Country Kids from Coombe Mill Farm’s Fiona and hope to maintain this lovely community of outdoor family bloggers to share activities and inspiration and help get you and the kids outdoors more.

This Week at Kids of the Wild

This week we’ve been re-living (over and over again!) our amazing Harry Potter theatre trip to London for Caroline’s cancer wish a couple of weeks ago. Read all about it in the linky and read my additional travel itinerary Harry Potter & The Cursed Child Travel Itinerary if you’d like to arrange a trip yourself.

Why not follow me on Facebook or sign up via email to make sure you don’t miss any good stuff!

There are lots of fab family and children’s reviews over on the blog too including a great back-to-school winter coat and the gorgeous Creation Poster with free copies for schools.
