It’s happy anniversary to let kids be kids linky!!! Yay, I started it a year ago this week and love it, I hope you do too! It is wonderful seeing how much it has grown in the last year and most importantly it’s fantastic to hear about so much basic childhood fun going on out there. It’s amazing to think we are all inspiring each other with our ideas and fun. I hope you all continue being an inspiration!

We had a wonderful holiday last week at Coombe Mill in Cornwall, I hope you are all having a great summer too. Thank you to the lovely Becoming a stay at home mum for hosting let kids be kids linky last week. Sorry I can’t feature any posts this week, as I didn’t get a chance to read any, I was out having too much fun 😉

This is a linky all about letting kids be kids, getting back to basics and having great childhood fun. We live in such a fast paced modern world with so much technology and stresses round every corner, we often need to be reminded to just ‘play’ and have fun, it’s healthy for us all (yes, that includes you parents!).

Please join me in spreading the word, for encouraging children to step away from the technology for a while and go out, run around, use their imaginations and just have general basic FUN!

There’s not many rules, just link up your posts (screen free), old or new, about genuine childhood fun (of any age). It may be fun outdoors, jumping in puddles, nature hunts, riding bikes or making mud pies. Or it may be fun indoors with arts and crafts, making dens, cooking, messy play or reading. Or how about visiting a farm or fun at a fete. Or a discussion about children growing up too fast, etc.

Whatever basic fun you have been having or discussing, link up and share your ideas, visit others to get inspiration and comment on as many as you can to give each other encouragement and support, but most importantly, HAVE FUN!

This linky will open every Tuesday for 6 days, so there’s plenty of time to add your posts.

Please spread the word and grab my badge if possible from my sidebar.

If you tweet me your link (@karenattwinlife), I will happily retweet.
