Your St. Patrick Coloring pages are ready for you to download for your kids. I remember how important holidays were to me as a child. St. Patrick’s Day was one of my favorites because it was fun to catch the unsuspecting friend who forgot to wear green. Pinches all around.
I’ve often wondered why St. Patrick’s Day was such a big deal here in the United States. After learning there are 4.1 million people who live in Ireland and 35 million people in the U.S., who have Irish ancestry, it makes sense. Going back several generations, there’s a bit of Irish blood in my veins also.
Kids look forward to the “wearing of the green” and celebrating one of the oldest observed holidays.
Here are your St. Patrick day choices.
I remember a neighbor, who made shamrock sugar cookies with green icing sprinkled with shiny sugar crystals. I couldn’t wait to get mine. They seemed extra special since my mom didn’t do the sugar cookie routine. I never fell into the sugar cookie routine either… that’s why I look for mine at the local grocery store. I love sugar cookies.
Print off the St. Patrick coloring sheets for your kids to enjoy. Keep them busy with a few crayons and markers.
P.S. I keep a stack of St. Patrick Coloring pages printed since my grands visit at different times. They are so use to having seasonal coloring pages around, they always look for them when they come by.
