Are you planning some St. David’s Day activities with your kids? St David’s Day, the saints day for Wales, is marked on 1st March, and even if you have no Welsh connections this Welsh cakes recipe is so delicious you can use the day as a great excuse to give them a try. You could also try some St David’s day crafts – my bunting and pinwheel ideas feature daffodils, the flower emblem of Wales.

I love having a stash of simple recipes for kids on hand for when the children want to do some baking. This choc chip flapjack recipe is a really great one for kids to try. It’s quick and easy to make, uses ingredients you probably have to hand (or at least available the local store) and it lets children practise lots of practical kitchen and maths skills. Oh, and did I mention it’s yummy?
