Pancake Day! 4 Fun EYFS Pancake Day Activities to get you inspired!


Pancake Tuesday also known as Shrove Tuesday the day before Lent starts on Ash Wednesday. It is the perfect day to experiment with the youngsters, get creative and messy!

Shrove comes from the old middle English word ‘Shriven’ meaning to go to confession to say sorry for the wrong things you’ve done. Lent always starts on a Wednesday, so people went to confessions the day before. This became known as Shriven Tuesday and then Shrove Tuesday.

Pancake Day comes from the old English custom of using up all the fatty ingredients in the house before Lent.

The fatty ingredients that most people had in their houses in those days were eggs and milk. A very simple recipe for you to make yummy pancakes.

In other countries Shrove Tuesday/Pancake day is known as ‘Mardi Gras’. This means ‘Fat Tuesday’ in French and comes from the idea of using up food before Lent.

So on Pancake Tuesday let’s all fill our FACES with some YUMMY pancakes and get creative with EYFS pancake day inspired play!Don’t forget to upload any fun videos or photos to Captures Digital Learning Journey and share to parents!
