Let Kids Be Kids

This is a linky about letting kids be kids.

In this modern world we live, it is so easy to get caught up in technology and the fast pace of life. These days, children often have to grow up too quickly and I believe frequently miss out on just being children. We need to let our children get back to basics and have genuine childhood fun.

This week we have been busy making stick puppets and having fun using our imagination with lots of story telling. We have also been out in the garden pruning together getting it ready for the winter (I will be writing about that shortly).

Last weeks linky saw another lot of great posts with lots of ideas and inspiration. I always find it difficult to choose three favourites, as they are all so good, but here goes….

There is a great autumn bucket list over at We’re going on an adventure so much so, it inspired me to write my own autumn activity list.

I loved the poem over at Distressed Housewife very funny and so true! Go have a read.

Over at Sarahs wacky world there was a cub camp. I had to include this, as it brought back so many childhood memories for me from my guiding days.

There’s not may rules, just link up your posts, 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 kids 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, 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 from my sidebar if possible.

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