Here are some of our favourite things to do for St David’s day tomorrow.

1. For younger children cbeebies have a great link which explains all about St David. http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/lets-celebrate/stories/lets-celebrate-stdavidsperformance/

2. Make a welsh dragon, here’s how! dragon

3. And finally it wouldn’t be St David’s day without Welsh Cakes!

What you need…

225g plain flour, 85g sugar, 1/2 tsp of mixed spice, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 50g butter cut into small pieces, 50g lard cut into small pieces and a little extra for frying, 50g currents, 1 egg beaten, splash of milk.

What to do…

  1. Tip the flour, sugar, mixed spice, baking powder and a pinch of salt into a bowl. Then, with your fingers, rub in the butter and lard until crumbly. Mix in the currants. Work the egg into the mixture until you have soft dough, adding a splash of milk if it seems a little dry – it should be the same consistency as shortcrust pastry.
  2. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured work surface to the thickness of your little finger. Cut out rounds using a 6cm cutter, re-rolling any trimmings. Grease a flat griddle pan or heavy frying pan with lard, and place over a medium heat. Cook the Welsh cakes in batches, for about 3 mins each side, until golden brown, crisp and cooked through. Delicious served warm with butter and jam, or simply sprinkled with caster sugar. Cakes will stay fresh in a tin for 1 week.

Have a great day!

At SCR toys we understand the importance of fun in children’s lives.  The stresses and strains of modern family life make it too easy to forget children need fun to create special memories. These toys are a great way to have fun sharing and creating special memories.  We’ve had great fun testing the toys with our own children, and can safely say they are the one toy that hasn’t been consigned to a dusty cupboard!  The John Deer tractor has been a great hit with inspiring our little ones to help around the garden, even in the cold!

Our toys are safe, robust and manufactured in Italy by the trusted brand name Peg Prego.

Please follow us for updates and news of our launch.

Thank you!
