Pancake Day is also known around the world as Shrove Tuesday.

It falls on the day before Ash Wednesday each year, the first day of Lent.

Why not have a Pancake race:

Give each child a saucepan and a pancake. Establish the length of the race and how many times the pancake must be tossed before reaching the finishing post. If a pancake falls out of the pan, you have to return to the start!
