No Cost Simple Pleasures - Hill rolling

We took advantage of the free weekend at the National Trust and went to Fountains Abbey on Saturday with a picnic.

Is there anything much more fun than children rolling down hills?


My boys had so much fun, but it really upset me to hear a parent tell their child off for doing it as they would get mucky!

  3. Hill rolling has always been a great pastime from my own childhood and now our children's. As you say it's free and great fun. Children are meant to explore and have fun outdoors, and come back a little dirty and disheveled but with a happy smile on their faces! Thanks for linking your fun pictures to Country Kids.

  7. The dirty clothes are quickly sorted out with a washing machine load but memories remain. :D These are the type of things we remember for years to come. Do you remember that day when we went out and we rolled down the hill?? etc, etc.. :D and just by bringing back the thought we experience the same feeling again! This cannot be replaced or at least that's the way I see happiness..
