Looking for kid-friendly activities for St. Patrick's Day? How about a Shamrock Coloring Page, St. Patrick's Day coloring pages are quick and easy and perfect for the whole family. I think coloring pages are a good all around activity, so pick a theme that fits the occassion and enjoy some creative fun. When celebrating St. Patrick's Day, you can focus on the green, that's easy enough too. Find all the green clothing to wear, paint everyone's nails green and make sure all the food gets a touch of green food coloring. Or, you can grab a few coloring pages and a box of crayons and you're set.
St. Patrick's Day Coloring Pages
Before we talk about shamrocks or coloring too much, let's talk about Shamrocks vs four Leaf Clovers. Did you know they are not the same? I always thought “shamrock” was interchangeable and then my blunt, sometimes snarky, British friend said “you Americans always lump those two together! Don't you know the difference?”. Obviously, I did not. He wasn't being rude, he was just laughing at a blatant misunderstanding that I was ignorantly applying to my art. Here's the thing…
Shamrocks vs Four Leaf Clovers Shamrocks are the green leaf plant with 3 leaves (as seen on all the art examples in these shamrock coloring sheets). Four leaf clovers are the similar green leaf plant with 4 leaves. Sounds logical, right? I had a bit of an embarrassed “duh” moment, but I'm thankful my buddy set me straight. He does that a lot.
So, on to Shamrock coloring sheets. I have a printable vs you can download, print and color. I also have a Shamrock coloring page design you can create with your Cricut. So let's talk about the printable version. Designed to print on 8.5×11″ paper and your standard printer, this coloring page prints in basic black and white. You can print on colored paper for more fun and just add glitter glue.

How to Make a Shamrock Coloring Page with your Cricut
I've created my own coloring page with my Cricut, which you can do with my easy to find Cricut Canvas. However, there are plenty of options you can print too.
I've set up a Cricut Canvas to help you make this Shamrock Coloring Page. You can make it as is, or you can edit it in Cricut Design Space. Change the pen colors you use, move things around or personalize the page. Head here to make this Shamrock coloring page with your Cricut.
Color your pages with whatever supplies you prefer. I love my watercolor pencils, but markers or crayons work well too. The Cricut pens are some of my favorites to add accents too.. they've got some really pretty gel glitter pens – the gold is FABULOUS for adding accents to Shamrock art.
In addition to all the coloring designs (cards, pages and tags), you can also create party decor, table place setting accents, gift tags and so much more. I have a few other projects tutorials you can create with this design, check them out here:
I also have a printable shamrock you can use for more projects or add to your coloring sheet activities.
Side note: if you're confused about this Cricut talk, read more about Creating with Cricut. If you have a Cricut machine but didn't realize you can draw with it, I have a whole series on drawing and writing with your Cricut.
