5 Ways to Celebrate St. David’s Day This Weekend

St. David’s Day is an annual celebration of the Patron Saint of Wales. On 1st March each year, those with Welsh heritage or appreciation of Welsh culture take part in a variety of activities. These can include baking traditional Welsh treats, making daffodil crafts and hosting an Eisteddfod (pronounced ‘ay-steth-vod’) – a Welsh festival of the arts.

Here are five ways you can celebrate St David’s Day with your family this weekend:

  1. Make some daffodil crafts

Get creative just like Elmscot Nantwich Day Nursery children and feature the Welsh national flower in some fun art activities, including:

  • Paper daffodils
  • Mini daffodil windmills
  • Collecting daffodils to create flower press cards
  • Daffodil wreaths
