Pancake Day(Shrove Tuesday)/Lent Activities for Children

Welcome to our Pancake Day/Lent section!

Pancake Day, or Shrove Tuesday, is a traditional feast held the day before the Christian fasting period of Lent begins, on Ash Wednesday. In the olden days, people used up all their fat, eggs and flour before beginning their Lent fast. Hence – they made pancakes! Shrove Tuesday always falls 47 days before Easter Sunday.

In 2021 Shrove Tuesday is on 16th February. 

Why not let your child colour in our Pancake Day activities, complete an acrostic poem or help make either our sweet or savoury pancake recipes.

Happy Pancake Day!
