Saint Patricks Day – Free Coloring Pages

More Saint Patrick’s Day coloring pages are coming your way.  Keep your kids busy this week-end with new free printables .

As a child, I rarely wore the color green.  I think it was because my skin tone is so olive, Mom  chose not to accentuate the color.   Anyway, I was one of those kids that got pinched frequently because my little green bow attached to my dress wasn’t as visible as Shirleen Hunter’s bright Kelly green dress.  It went with her flowing blond hair so beautifully.    I have a “thing” about pinching.

So… I’ve made some fun “No Pinching” coloring sheets for those kids who prefer not to come home black and blue.  They can color their St. Patrick Day coloring sheets to help ward off those eager pinchers in the class.

Again… you get a choice between black and white coloring sheets… or the full color sheets the kids can just cut out.

Now if you kids don’t have green clothing…. I’m arming them with a little tag they can color, cut out and pin on their dress or shirt.

No Pinching Kids Black and White  or   No Pinching Kids Colored.

If you missed out on the free  St. Paddy’s day coloring printables last week… you welcome to get them here.

There you go… keep those kids busy this week-end  arming themselves with St. Paddy protection.

Till Later,

Free St Patrick’s Day Coloring Sheets

Here are a few St. Patrick’s day coloring sheets for your kid or grands to enjoy. Kids love to prepare and decorated for any occasion… and these St. Patrick’s coloring sheets gives them the opportunity to prepare for the “wearing of the green.”

Here’s a bit of St. Patrick’s Day trivia.

1. As the English began to seize Irish land and make laws against the use of the Irish language and the practice of Catholicism, many Irish began to wear the shamrock as a symbol of their pride in their heritage and their displeasure with English rule.

Boy… that disagreement has lasted for a long time.

2. Though cabbage has long been an Irish food, corned beef only began to be associated with St. Patrick’s Day at the turn of the century. Irish immigrants living on New York City’s Lower East Side substituted corned beef for their traditional dish of Irish bacon to save money. They learned about the cheaper alternative from their Jewish neighbors.   Now that’s called getting along.

There are over 40 million American’s that can trace their ancestry back to Ireland. My mom is a Hamilton… which give me the inherent right to wear the green and eat corned beef and cabbage.

3. The New York parade has become the largest Saint Patrick’s Day parade in the world. In a typical year, 150,000 marchers participate in it, including bands, firefighters, military and police groups, county associations, emigrant societies, and social and cultural clubs, and 2 million spectators line the streets.

Frankly…with that many folks crowding the streets… it’s a parade I would rather view from my TV at home… while eating corn beef and cabbage.
