Country Kids is live again (slightly delayed on my part due to a migraine), the place to join and link your outdoor family adventures, and read other people’s outdoor inspiration.

Country Kids was started by Coombe Mill Farm’s fabulous Fiona and is now co-hosted by Louise from Little Hearts Big Love, Helena from Queen of Collage and me at Kids of the Wild.

We’re maintaining this lovely community of outdoor family bloggers to share activities and inspiration and help get you and the kids outdoors more.

Click the ‘frog’ button at the bottom of the page to add your blog post and find great reads by other bloggers.

This Week at Kids of the Wild

I hope you’re enjoying the gorgeous autumn weather like we are. I’ve been catching up on the blog again this week, with Caroline’s surfing birthday party and a review of some great waterproof boots.

We also received the amazing news that Caroline’s latest MRI scan was clear so she is now a year into remission!!!
