St David’s Day

St David’s Day Activity

Today is St. David’s day! St. David is the patron saint of Wales and we celebrate on the 1st of March each year by wearing one of Wale’s national emblems - a Daffodil.

At Toddletown we love learning about the diversity of the United Kingdom and we also love flowers! So today we are going to create a ‘Potato Stamp’ in the shape of a Daffodil! There is nothing more fun than making beautiful paintings with our potato stamps!

What you need:


Kitchen knife



How to make a potato stamp

First cut a potato in half, draw the shape of the Daffodil onto the surface of the potato using a pencil. Cut around this shape with a kitchen knife (adults only), leaving the design so it’s raised on the surface of the potato.

Pour some yellow paint on a plate and now we are ready to Stamp! It’s so easy!

The potato can be washed after use and used again with another colour.

This is a great activity for all ages, the children explore textures, colours, creativity and hand-eye coordination.
