Provide your children with their favorite coloring tools – crayons, pencils, or markers.

How to Use These Printables
The great thing about these holiday coloring pages is that they can be enjoyed by kids of many ages.
Toddlers and preschoolers can use them to work on pencil pressure. It’s often difficult for young children to hold a crayon or pencil enough to make strong, dark marks on the page.
Providing coloring pages regularly – with no worry about staying in the lines – is a great way to build this skill.
Kindergarten and early elementary aged kids can use them to strengthen fine motor skills and develop proper pencil grip.
Older children can use these pages as a brain break between subjects or while listening to you read a story aloud.
Fun Ways to Use These Pages
While the goal of these worksheets is to provide your kids with a quiet activity, there are so many more St. Patrick’s Day activities that pair well with them.
Once your child is finished coloring the page, challenge them to write a creative story about St. Patrick’s Day, leprechauns, or pots of gold on the back.
Teach children about Ireland, the real Saint Patrick, or the legend of St. Patrick’s Day. Kids can color a map of Ireland, learn why the real Saint Patrick has a holiday, and learn about the traditions associated with St. Patrick’s Day – wearing green, shamrocks, rainbows, etc.
