Many people love eating pancakes, especially children. They are made of flour, milk, salt, sugar, butter or oil, and egg, and you can add carrots or any other ingredients depending on your taste. You can eat them with butter, cheese, or whatever you want for breakfast and even for dinner. There is a particular celebration, Pancake Day, which is celebrated in English-speaking countries, such as the United Kingdom, Australia, Ireland, and Canada. It is held the day before Ash Wednesday which is the beginning of Lent. People make a lot of pancakes and enjoy diverse activities during that day.
There are plenty of coloring pages about this tradition. You can get them from some books or you might download and print these images. Your children will probably have fun coloring these pictures and making them look as tasty as possible. One example could be an image with some pancakes and all the necessary ingredients.
Some other pictures show boys or girls cooking pancakes, tossing and catching them several times. Maybe, pancakes are shown on a plate on the table ready for family breakfast. Other pictures have messages such as “I love pancakes” or “Happy Pancake Day” and the main image is a pile of this delicious food. Some people eat them spreading butter, chocolate, jelly or cream, so it is possible to find these additional types of food in the pictures.
Another interesting activity about Pancake Day is a competition known as pancake racing. Many people have to run with a pancake in a pan and they also have to throw and catch it in the pan. They need to repeat this action several times. It is a funny and entertaining activity for them, some of these people wear diverse costumes.
There are many coloring pages about pancake racing.
