Description

Thursday Stay & Play on Porthtowan Beach.

Come to the beach! We're going to explore, play and experiment on our beach. We'll use whatever we find to play with that day and our space will be determined by the tides. Suitable for toddlers through to Home Ed' children up to 8yrs.

Niki is a Forest School Leader and Playworker who loves playing outside. This is a session for children from 0 - 6 with their parents or carers. Please ensure you're dressed for the weather remembering that it is often breeezier on the beach. You might want shoes or boots that you can paddle in, and possibly a change of clothes just in case.

I'll have the Kelly Kettle for hot drinks, please bring cold drinks and snacks if needed.

Suggested session 'themes' below, but we will be very led by the weather and what the children are interested in. There is no expectation that you will complete a set activity, this is about being playful on the beach with likeminded company.

All sessions will end with a Minute Beach Clean

Sept 21st - Welcome back after the summer with a bit of mini den building for some tiny finger puppets. Learn to make sparks with a fire steel and find out how the Kelly Kettle works.

Sept 28th - Driftwood creations - I'll bring the clay, wool and craft box and see what you can make.

Oct 5th - Beach Discovery Session - low tide, let's go and explore and see what we can find in rockpools and along the strandline. Meet at the Blue Bar entrance to the beach at 10.30 prompt.

Oct 12th - Maths on the beach - shapes and numbers with found objects, maybe we'll invent a new game

Oct 19th - Sand art - can we create a huge piece of land art together? Or should we each make our own and think of a way to join them up?

Oct 26th - Half Term Family Session - sandcastle competition! Prizes for each team :) Bring your own buckets and spades and Grannies, Grandad's, Cousins, Aunties and Uncles. Sandcastles may be sculpted with anything but only decorated with materials found on the beach. NOTE - this is a different ticket to the normal sessions. £6.50 for the whole family, scroll down on the ticket page.


Sessions will run whatever the weather unless there are severe conditions - please check your email before you leave if the weather looks awful.

Meet on the right hand side of the beach - I'll be the curly haired lady with all the bags!

No charge for babes in arms.

This is a stay and play session, parents stay with their children.
