March 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.

  • Spot signs of spring (spring is officially here on 20th – whoop!) on local walks (snowdrops, daffodils, crocuses, blossom and magnolias) Check out some of my favourite walks here littledevon.co.uk/walks
  • Be welcomed by Powderham Castle’s magnificent driveway of daffodils and enjoy a day out now it has just opened again after the winter months
  • Go foraging for Wild Garlic in Columbjohn Woods, Nr Killerton – in April and May it also boasts lots of lovely bluebells as well as the wild garlic, with a beautiful view too. Parking: There is a small lay-by What3words: shed.clinking.mystery Please forage responsibly taking only a small amount, and only if you’re confident with what you’re picking.
  • Celebrate World Book Day 3rd March – head to your local library and celebrate in a low key way reading a variety of books and joining in singing nursery rhymes if its on that day (Bounce and Rhyme is a fab 20-30 mins of nursery rhyme singing let by the library staff. Its drop in and a great)
  • Book a children’s theatre show – there’s lots of fantastic shows coming up including Oi Frog on at Exeter Northcott 5 & 6 March, which I am looking forward to (will review on Instagram – PR tickets)
  • Who knew there was such a day as World Frog Day – but 20th March it is! Great excuse to go out and hunt for frogspawn though!
  • Experience Life through Light and Sound at Exeter Cathedral. The exhibition ‘Life will take you on a walking journey through earth, sea and sky. Installations of light and sound art celebrate the beauty of the earth – from the majesty of a vast ocean to the glory in a butterfly’s wing – reflecting on the fragility of nature and the impact of humanity.’ My children enjoyed the multi-sensory experience at the last son-et-lumiere show on space in 2020. Book tickets via Exeter Cathedral’s website The show runs Tuesday 22 – Saturday 26 March but it will have to be a late bedtime as the earliest ticket is 18:45 each day
  • 26th March is Earth Hour where we switch off our lights and consider ‘nature loss, the climate crisis, and the need to shape a brighter future for people and planet’. Why not hold it a bit earlier than the 8:30pm so your children can join in too. Think dinner by candle light, torches to light up bath time… This book – Earth Hour – might help them to understand why (affiliate link)
  • 27th March – Mother’s Day – Treat yourself to tea and cake date with your little one. Or have a look at our Mother’s Day Gift Guides: 2020 & 2021
