Valentine’s Day Crafts


There are many  Valentine’s Day craft ideas on  Pinterest. One of my favourites is making animals from hearts as it is a great opportunity to learn new animal words. We only made some animals like a bee, a raccoon, a fox, a butterfly and a caterpillar but we played and told a nice story about them. we played The Very Hungry Caterpillar, too.


It can also be used at school. Some years ago, I organised a Valentine’s Day Crafts Contest at school  The students had to decorate their classrooms. It was a huge success.




Saint Patrick’s Day

  Saint Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland. He brought Christianity to Ireland but the most famous story about Saint Patrick is that he drove the snakes out of Ireland.
  The national emblem of Ireland is the Shamrock  because Patrick used the three-leaved shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity. On St.Patrick’s Day people wear shamrocks, drink Guinness (traditional drink in Ireland) and have parades in the big cities.  It is celebrated on 17 March.
Can you answer the questions about Saint Patrick?
1. In which country is Saint Patrick the patron saint?
2. What animals did he drive out of the country?
3. What is the national emblem?
4. How do people celebrate Saint Patrick Day?
5. When is Saint Patrick Day?

(Fireworks display above the Houses of Parliament in London, UK)

On 5 November every year, children in Britain celebrate Bonfire Night (Guy Fawkes’ Night). They light bonfires  and enjoy fireworks displays. On top of the fire is a guy (a homemade model of a man, like a scarecrow). They do these things because they’re remembering when the King of England, James l, and the Houses of Parliament were nearly blown up with gunpowder.
“Remember, remember,
the fifth of November,
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
We see no reason why
Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!”
Dear Young Reader,
Your task is to make a Guy Fawkes craft by printing and colouring the following template: Guy Fawkes
Moreover, if you learn the rhyme Remember, remember… by heart (fejből), you can get a 5*.
Have fun! 🙂
