Over the last six weeks Teats Hill beach has been the home of a group of adventurous toddlers and daring grownups taking part in our first ever Ocean Todds sessions! Ocean Todds is our new outdoor toddler programme which was developed to connect toddlers and their grownups with our green and blue outdoor spaces through play, nature connection, hands on skills, and crafts.
Oh, what a wonderous time was had! Over our six weeks together we did beach exploring, colour finding, den building, monster making, treasure hunting, story telling, game playing, stick whittling, fire making, bubble catching and a lot of memory making!
The sessions were run by Lizzie from the National Marine Aquarium with support from Hayley and her lovely volunteers from Devon Wildlife Trust and Ash from Active Neighbourhoods Plymouth. These are just a few of our favourite things we got up to:
Check out the gallery below for a snapshot of these jam-packed six sessions!
Due to the success of the Ocean Todds pilot, we will be looking to run regular Ocean Todds sessions in the future! Keep an eye on the National Marine Aquarium website and social media for more information coming soon!
Thank you to Hayley from Devon Wildlife Trust, Ash from Active Neighbourhoods Plymouth and to Lauren Friendship for capturing the magic with these lovely photographs!
