Pancake Day in the UK is also known as Shrove Tuesday, and is celebrated as Carnival and Mardi Gras elsewhere in the world. Enjoyed on 16th February in 2010, it falls just before Lent, and was traditionally a day of fun and feasting before fasting for 40 days of Lent. It's less than three weeks away now, so we've been working on our Pancake Day page and this is what we've added:
Two cute new Pancake Day colouring pictures and a pancake doodle - what would you like on your pancake?
Four steps to perfect pancakes - and some delicious ideas for topping them, too!
We've also got ideas for games, puzzles, crafts and all sorts of pancake themed activities here:
