We have been having so much fun designing creative, printable bookmarks for kids to color. I’ve shared bookmarks to color for all kinds of holidays and seasons. When I sat down to design these St. Patrick’s Day bookmarks I knew they were going to be fun St Patrick’s Day activity for kids!

St. Patrick’s Day is one of those holidays that we typically celebrate with food. We bake a good loaf of Irish soda bread to accompany a delicious bowl of Irish stew. And, we do love making delightfully colourful rainbow sugar cookies. But, we don’t do a whole lotta crafting for St. Patrick’s day.
I know lots of people make leprechaun traps with their kids…and they look like so much fun. That’s just not something we’ve tried making before. But reading books and making bookmarks, now that’s my jam! These bookmarks make a super simple activity for students or to color at home. They also make a great, super inexpensive St. Patrick’s Day gift for kids.
St. Patrick’s Day Printable Bookmarks to Color for Kids
First up, you will want to print our St. Patrick’s day bookmarks to color. We usually like to print our bookmarks on white card stock. Using cardstock means the bookmarks are more durable than regular, lighter weight paper. Also, whatever you choose to colour your bookmarks with will look a little brighter if you use cardstock. Feel free to use whatever type of paper you have on hand.
You could simply gift the uncoloured bookmarks as is. Or, you can cut out the bookmarks and pass them around for each student in your class to colour. However you choose to use them, it’s a good idea to cut them out before setting down to colour the bookmarks.
We typically use pencil crayons to colour our bookmarks, but you could also use markers or crayons. Again, whatever you have on hand will work.
When the bookmarks are coloured they are ready to be used. However, I like to add a second layer of colourful cardstock to our bookmarks. Again, it makes them a little sturdier and I like the pop of colour around the edge. All you have to do is use double-sided tape to secure the coloured bookmark to a brightly coloured sheet of cardstock. Then cut out an edge around the bookmark. Done.
From silly leprechauns to silly, dancing clovers these St. Patrick’s Day bookmarks are a fun St. Patrick’s Day activity for kids.
