Pancake Day in the UK is also known as Shrove Tuesday, and is celebrated as Carnival and Mardi Gras elsewhere in the world. Next enjoyed on 13th February 2018, it was traditionally a day of fun and feasting before the fasting required during 40 days of Lent.
We will be having lots of fun doing lot of exciting activities and decorating our own pancakes with different fruit and maybe even some hundreds and thousands.
Give each contestant a saucepan and a pancake. Establish the length of the race and how many times the pancake must be tossed before reaching the finishing post. If a pancake falls out of the pan, you have to return to the start!
Make a stack:
Use corrugated cardboard from a cardboard box to cut out a stack of pancakes for counting and matching activities, or to use in a treasure hunt.
Pancake on your head race:
Children could try walking across the room or playground with a cardboard pancake on their head. Each time they complete the distance without losing their pancake, add another to their stack!
we look forward to seeing you.
