Every March in the US, our surroundings turn green in a celebration of all things Irish. Or Irish-American, since the modern celebration as we know it originated in the US.
The parades, leprechaun costumes, and mint green milkshakes all evolved from earlier American St. Patrick’s Day festivities. But shamrocks are a tradition straight from Ireland.
Use the shamrock St. Patrick’s Day printable bookmarks to teach the difference between traditional Irish and Irish-American celebrations, or just because you’d like a quick and easy holiday craft for your classroom or meeting.
Print onto heavy white cardstock, mat with green cardstock or construction paper, and add a ribbon if desired.
How to Make a St. Patrick’s Day Bookmark
Give your shamrock bookmark extra strength and color by crafting some extra accents. I always love adding this bit of extra fanciness to my bookmarks. In addition to being pretty, they last much longer.
