It’s Country Kids time again, the comment linky for sharing your outdoor family adventures.

Started by Coombe Mill Farm’s fabulous Fiona, Country Kids 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 was back to school for us this week. That supposedly means lots of me-time walking with Fidget and more time for blogging, but it didn’t really work out as planned. Mainly because we collected our 9-week old rescue kitten on Monday and everything else went on hold!

We had a fab campfire sing-song at Cubs on Thursday night and are now sat listening to the rain and wind, glad for an indoor evening.

For something a little crafty if the weather’s bad this weekend, try out our painted matchbox memory box or if you need some new waterproof boots have a read of my BOGs review.
