With St Patrick’s Day celebrations on a lot of people’s minds I thought it would be a good idea to share this super simple free shamrock template for you to download and use!
There’s loads of fun stuff for kids to learn about during St Patrick’s Day with leprechauns, rainbows and pots of gold all featuring but I love shamrock activities and crafts as they can be so simple, making them especially accessible to younger children.

How Can I Decorate A Paper Shamrock?
You could use this shamrock template to make our foil painted shamrock craft.
We’ve also shared three easy shamrock crafts for kids made using this template with ideas using paint and paper depending on how much mess you fancy! I love the mosaic idea in this post and I’ve shared a video to this page that shows it in action too.
Colour it! There’s nothing wrong with just grabbing some paints, crayons or felt tip pens, especially with younger children.
Use coloured stickers* for an activity that would be great for fine motor skills too.
Make big coloured dots on your shamrock using bingo daubers*.
