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 enjoying lots of outdoor time after school and avoiding falling timber as Storm Ali gave Northumberland a pummelling! Some gorgeous huge trees have been lost which is always sad to see. Caroline had her 9th birthday surfing party on Saturday and there are some more new recipes coming soon too.
