Welcome to another week of Country Kids, the place to 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.

This Week at Kids of the Wild

It’s half term up here in the north but I think lots of you are already back at school.

Hopefully you’ve all had great fun over Halloween or Day of the Dead, and if you haven’t been to a Day of the Dead celebration before there are a few happening around the country this weekend – Ayr, Bristol, Bournemouth, Newcastle, Southampton and London amongst others – there’s a list in my Dia de Los Muertos post.

We also had a Mummy bloggers lunch in Newcastle – this is Caroline in the storyteller’s hat. The post will be coming soon.
