We like to home school in a way that allows our children to learn through their interests but we also like them to learn about important topics such as Welsh history. It is up to them to decide how deep they want to go with their learning, we will just give them the subject and tools in an interesting way to get them started.

So as Rayne and Rose are really keen on baking at the moment, we decided to make Welsh cakes to learn about and celebrate St David’s Day this year.

 

St David’s Day is an offical holiday here in Wales on 1st March and all the children usually dress up in traditional Welsh clothing or Welsh rugby tops to celebrate. 

 

Welsh Cakes are a very popular snack in Wales. They are not actually baked, traditionally they were cooked over a hot bake-stone but they are mainly cooked on a griddle or even in a frying pan, a bit like pancakes. They are really easy to make and quick enough for kids not to get bored. Rayne and Rose love getting their hands in to rub the flour and butter together!  I love them as we are almost always likely to have all the ingredients in the fridge or pantry! 

We love eating Welsh Cakes as an afternoon snack or on a cold winters day with hot chocolate. Welsh Cakes are also a big hit with any guests or family who visit from outside of Wales. They are my American step-father in law’s favourite!

I am a mum of 2 daughters. I recently gave up my 9-5 job of 14 years to home school my children. My dream is for my family to become world schoolers, travelling around the world and learning as we go! I love blogging about our life, sharing our wins and fails. I hope some of the things I blog about inspire you along the way
