Happy St David's Day. If you are stuck inside because of the snow, here is a great kids colour and collage download activity for you to do.

Take a look at some fun facts that you may not know about St Davids Day:

Who was St David?     

St David was a Celtic monk, abbot and bishop, who lived in the sixth century. He spread the word of Christianity across Wales. His names in Welsh is Dewi Sant.

Why is the leek the national emblem of Wales?                                                         

There are many explanations of how the leek came to be adopted as the national emblem of Wales. One is that St David advised the Welsh, on the eve of battle with the Saxons, to wear leeks in their caps to distinguish friend from the enemy.

What was St David most famous for?                                                                         

The most famous story about Saint David tells how he was preaching to a huge crowd and the ground is said to have risen up so that he was standing on a hill and everyone had a better chance of hearing him.

Why is the daffodil so popular on St David's Day?                                               

The daffodil is a generic Welsh symbol which is in season during March. The Welsh wear this symbol on their lapel.
