April 2022: Things to do with kids in Devon

What to do this month with your little ones? Here are some ideas to keep you exploring the beautiful Devon with your gorgeous kids.

  • Get organised and check our our Easter Gift Guide 2022 for some egg-citing locally made gifts this Easter.
  • Play a joke on April fools day – mash potato served in a cone with sprinkles for an ice-cream? Best have a real one on stand by too though!
  • Get creative at family drop in sessions at the RAMM
  • Hunt the Charity shops or just order some Easter books – check out my Top 10 brilliant Baby and Toddler Easter Books
  • Easter Egg hunt: (I shall keep adding to this as I find them)
    • Head to one of the local National Trust properties for their Easter trails. Complete the 10 nature-inspired activities (hopping like an Easter bunny, making a home for wildlife, or peeking into veg patches etc) and once you’ve finished the trail, collect your delicious chocolate egg.
    • We love the Miniature Pony Centre and on Good Friday and Easter Monday the Easter Bunny is hopping in as well as Easter sports day.
    • Bear Town is always great too and little ones will love finding the Easter Eggs hidden about
  • Ullacombe farm is a great cafe and has a play area that the kids love too (climbing area and ride on tractors in a barn as well as a couple of animals to say hi to). It has been a favourtie on Little Devon website since the beginning. They also run fantastic events over the holidays. Worth booking as they get busy!
  • Enjoy a baby or pre-schooler party session at The Big Sheep 4-8th
  • Meet a real Thomas the Tank Engine puffing along South Devon Railway. 15-18th
  • Apparently April 19 is National Garlic Day – so head to the wonderful Columbjohn wood for some wild garlic foraging (as also suggested in our March guide) and then make yummy Wild Garlic and cheese scones
  • Join the Education ranger at Seaton Wetlands for Easter and springtime themed activities. £5 per child (under 2s free) 20th
  • Follow David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny on her naughty adventures at Exeter Northcott 21st -24
  • Take a picnic to the beautiful secret of Duryard Valley Park in Exeter and enjoy the view while the littlies can enjoy eating alfresco
  • See the cutie lambs at Lambing Sunday: Martinsfield Farm, Exeter, 24th
  • Be the first to splash about with the kids at St Sidwell’s Point Leisure Centre (or to relax child-free at the rooftop Spa!) 29th
  • Go foraging for dandelions and make delicious Dandelion honey
  • Be inspired at Toby’s Garden Festival at Powderham Castle 29th & 30th
