St. George is the Patron Saint of England, and St. George's Day is celebrated on 23rd April each year. Compared with many of the other saints day's celebrated in the British Isles, such as St. David's Day and St. Patrick's Day, we tend to be pretty low-key about celebrating, but that's no reason not to have some fun!
So I've collected together some of my favourite craft ideas for St. George's Day, including lots of dragons, English flags and sword and sheilds as well as some some yummy baking ideas too.
Plus we have our very own St. George's Day Colouring Pictures and St. George's Day Printable Wordsearch and Anagrams.
