Are you looking for a template for your St. Patrick’s Day crafts? Download one of these shamrock templates to use for crafts, coloring, or anything else you may need them for.
Shamrocks are a symbol of St. Patrick’s Day, and come March 17 you tend to see them everywhere!
Did you know that shamrocks and 4 leaf clovers aren’t the same thing? That’s right! Shamrock’s technically have only 3 leaves.
Shamrock, which roughly means “little clover”, usually refers to white clover or suckling clover. The fact that they have 3 leaves is notable because of the stories about St. Patrick using the 3 leaflets to demonstrate the principles of the Holy Trinity.
But, leaf numbers aside, if you need a template of a shamrock this St. Patrick’s Day, you’ve come to the right place!
