St David’s Day kids activities On St David's Day schools up and down the country will be ditching maths, geography and chemistry for a day of competition in music, poetry and art. We call it an Eisteddfod (ice-teth-vod). A celebration of creativity traced back to 1176 AD when Lord Rhys invited musicians and poets to compete for a seat at his table. We love old traditions, and making new ones. Here you'll find a few things to help your children join in the celebrations. Make a Daffodil Daffodils Download our PDF to make your own daffodil.
