Daffodil 2018 and

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.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Today me and my daughters participated in two free taster sessions with Kelly via Zoom. One was for babies and the other was for children of a similar age to my four year old. Kelly was so so friendly and that really came across even through a screen. I loved the variety of activities the girls did, each creating a very different name plaque and one princess mirror. The bags were delivered last week which gave me time to look through them and just made everything smooth and organised. We are defiantly interested in further sessions around yearly events such as Christmas. If the virtual session today was as good as it was I can only imagine how fun and engaging a real life face to face one would be! Thanks again Kelly!!?

Excellent session and good value-…

Excellent session and good value- especially with the £4 refreshment credit. My children had a lovely time and it was such a beautiful location too. Lovely to finally be able to get out to a group after all these months of lockdown so thank you to Kelly for being inventive and finding a safe way to do this during this crisis. We are looking forward to the next session!

My little girl loves creation station

My little girl loves creation station. She talks about all her creations when she gets home and it helps that the wonderful Kelly is so patient and kind with all the kids! It gave me the confidence as a parent to try new crafts with scissors (eeek) and glitter (double eeek)! The sessions are so much fun!

Creation Station Halifax

My six year old son has just had his third online session of creation station. All the materials were delivered by Claire ready for the sessions. He has loved trying to guess what he will be using each week. The instructions given by Claire online are easy for the children to understand and good cultural links. Bailey has really enjoyed getting creative and can’t wait for the next session.
