Find activities for Children in Torbay

In this day and age, it’s a lot harder to find proper activities for children to do. With such distractions as ipads, games, films and all other kinds of technology, it’s a lot harder these days to get our children to appreciate the things that we used to do when we were younger. 

This is the Torquay Online page for children’s activities.

Little Squirrels

Little Squirrels runs home based and outdoor nature activities with morning sessions primarily aimed at children up to 5 years old and their parents. By popular request Little Squirrels is now fully insured to offer a custom 2 hour outdoor sessions for kids and adults of all ages. Group bookings from home education families, childminders and for birthdays very welcome.

Parent and Child group provides a gentle play space indoors for little ones to explore toys made from natural materials, encouraging imaginative, free play. Parents are offered a space to sit and talk (warm cuppa in hand), forming valuable friendships and support networks. We will create a seasonal craft to take home. This is followed by games, vegan snacks and a play opportunity at the local park or with the mud kitchen in the garden. The session finishes with a story.

The outdoor explorers group and the woodland explorers group both provide a chance to be out and about splashing in puddles, running through grass and collecting nature treasure for a group craft. We will sit down to enjoy a vegan snack, outdoor games and songs finishing the session with a story. The group will go ahead in all weather’s waterproofs, wellies and a spare set of clothing are strongly recommended.

A special Family Explorers session runs once a month on Saturdays so mum’s, dad’s and all kids can explore off the beaten track together.

All sessions run during term time only and cost £5, £2.50 for siblings over 6m. If booking two sessions in the same week a discount applies so two sessions are just £7.50. Family session costs £2.50 per child.

Payable in advance in order to confirm booking.

Here’s what some of Little Squirrel’s happy customers have said about them…

Lovely group, great for meeting other families, getting out into nature. Loved the end craft activity, singing and snack too! Thank you xx

Sammy Fox

We have been going to Little Squirrels since the group started and we love it! Anne is very friendly and easy to talk to. My daughter is now 18 months old, but we started when she was only about 10 months old.

The Monday session at Anne’s home is nice and relaxed and whilst the children get to play with some lovely toys the parents get a bit of time to make something crafty or edible.
We also go to the outdoor explorers session on Wednesdays at Cockington. This is great for letting the little ones investigate the natural environment and have mini adventures of their own. 
Anne also makes yummy vegan snacks for every session so we are always well fed as well!

Katy Peverill

Little Squirrels is a great way to enjoy the outdoors with other parents and little ones. Anne plans lovely crafts, stories and yummy snack to encourage outdoor exploring. I think it’s a great gift idea too!

Sarah Shoare

Lovely friendly group and great to get the little ones exploring outside. My little boy starts school in September so am sad we won’t be able to attend any more. I would highly recommend this group

Here’s what some of Tots Play’s customers have said about them…

Had an amazing party today for my 3 year old daughter. Great mix of play, instruments and singing then bubbles. We had a beach theme and had edible sand which went down a storm with the mini sibling/ toddlers. Much better than hiring soft play in my mind and great value for money. Thank you so much Jenny!

Heather James

Jenny’s group with tots play in marldon, from starting baby development course right through to social tots has been absolutely amazing, really helped my confidence as a new mum to interact with my baby and keeping my niece occupied too at social tots. If it wasnt for nursery fees i wouldn’t be leaving! Highly recommend to other parents or parents to be. Myself and the kiddies are gonna miss the class and Jenny soooo much but we will definately be back for special events and for regular classes in the future xx

Hollie Luton

My baby loves Tots Play 😍 We have been going since he was just 4 weeks old and now he is 13 months ❤️ Each class is so well thought out and there are lots of special events too! The Halloween special was great, he went straight to the pumpkins with black spaghetti 😃 My husband and I are so excited for the Christmas special as it is on a Saturday so he can come too!! Thank you Jenny

Elli Scott

Jenny did our daughters first birthday party last weekend and it was so much fun! Our 12 other baby guests had a lovely time with the large variety of sensory goodies, touching all the funky silver balls, the noisy xylophone which almost had a new home and the ball pool where Jenny almost had to take home a strange baby! I loved how she set up quickly and was able to take care of the entertainment whilst I floundered around aimlessly trying to make sure food was ready and people were greeted! I would love to book her again for the next one, although I’m not sure my brain could manage an older baby party! 😂 I also loved how she started singing happy birthday at my thumbs up so it wasn’t left up to me!! 😂 thank you so much Jenny 😘😘 x
