Stacks of Pancake Fun at Kidderminster Nursery

Pancake day started early at Little Trinity Nursery in Kidderminster with stacks of scummy pancakes, fruit and pancake games on Pancake Day, Shrove Tuesday 13th February. Nursery Manager, Miss Gaynor Carter, said: “We love pancake day, with lots of warm pancakes and toppings, as well as a range of fruit alternatives for those children not keen on this traditional food eating activity.” Pancake Day or Shrove Tuesday, is the traditional day of feasting before Ash Wednesday, and the 40 days of Lent leading up to Easter. Shrove Tuesday enables Christians and those observing the Lent practice, to use up their surplus eggs and fats before embarking upon the traditional Lenten fast, with pancakes offering the perfect way of utilising these ingredients. Miss Carter added: “Creative helps to encourage a child’s motor and skill development, with this yummy activity involving even our youngest children from 2 years of age and up. “All our children, and staff, thoroughly enjoyed this Shrove Tuesday pancake activity.”
