One of the most important days of the year for any budding unicorn spotter, the 9th April is National Unicorn Day. We’re so excited!
Here at The Enfys Society HQ we really love doing something extra special to mark the day.
Read on to discover some great ways to have your most fun-filled National Unicorn Day ever. Yes, we mean EVER!
Go on your own unicorn adventure
There’s no better way to celebrate Unicorn Day than putting the plans for your own unicorn adventure into practice.
Spend some time beforehand to plan out where you’re going to go, what equipment you’ll need to take with you and what clues you’re going to keep an eye out for.
If you’re looking for some inspiration, you can find some great hints and tips in our handy guide on how to plan your own unicorn adventure.
Although there’s a higher chance than normal of spotting your local unicorn on National Unicorn Day, keep in mind that it’s still a very hard task and watch out for clues that might help you locate a unicorn on your next adventure.
Plan a unicorn day out
When it comes to celebrating Unicorn Day, planning a unicorn-themed day out is a great idea. A lovely day out filled with unicorns, glitter and sparkle sounds like the most perfect day in the world to us!
Here’s a couple of events that we thought looked really fun. We hope you can find something in your local area too:
Join the team in-store for a reading of The Hungry Unicorn, unicorn colouring, crafts and instructions on how to make your very own unicorn horn.
This looks so much fun. Hosted at Quarry Farm, kids will get all the help they need to make their very own unicorn plushie.
Head along to The Miniature Pony Centre in Dartmoor, and take part in their Unicorn and Dragon day. Perfect for picking up all the tips you need when it comes to planning your own unicorn finding adventure.
Get your colours out
Believe it or not, unicorns actually love crafting. So, why not get your brightest pens and pencils out and celebrate the day by making some great, colourful pictures?
Whether you colour-in your favourite unicorn colouring book or design your own fantastic picture, why not put it in a special frame and then update it each year on National Unicorn Day?
We love this colouring book. Not only has it got loads of unicorns to colour, but there’s plenty of cool patterns too.
Plan a party
By far my favourite option for celebrating National Unicorn Day, bake some unicorn-inspired treats and invite all your friends around to talk about what clues you found on your last adventure.
Why not gather together any photgraphs you’ve been lucky enough to take, all the evidence you’ve found, and maps of potential unicorn habitats and plan your next big adventure all together?
A party is a great excuse for baking . Try one of our favourite cupcake recipes to mak your party truly magical:
Makes approximately 24 cupcakes
- 250g softened unsalted butter
- 250g caster sugar
- 250g self-raising flour
- A pinch of salt
- 4 eggs
- 4 tablespoons of milk
- 2 cupcake trays lined with paper cases
- Preheat your oven to 190℃ or gas mark 5
- Put the butter into a bowl and beat it with a whisk until it’s soft. Then add the sugar, flour, salt, eggs and milk and combine them until the mixture is smooth.
- Use a spoon to divide the mixture evenly between the paper cases.
- Put the muffin tins in the oven for 15 minutes, swap the trays over and then continue to bake for a further 3 to 7 minutes until the cupcakes are a lovely golden colour.
- Take the tins out of the oven. Leave the cakes to cook in the tray for a few minutes, before transferring them onto a wire rack.
