Coloring Ideas

Whether it’s for toddlers, young kids, teens, or adults, we’ve got a variety for every skill level. From simple designs that toddlers will adore to intricate mandala patterns that are a sweet challenge for older kids and adults.

Some coloring ideas include

  • Markers: Ideal for all ages, especially the little ones. Why? No need to press hard, and they’re just perfect for filling in those mesmerizing mandalas.
  • Colored Pencils: A classic choice that works wonders for kids and adults alike. Whether you’re shading a shamrock or coloring a clover, pencils offer precision and a range of hues.
  • Crayons: Best for the slightly older kiddos because they require a bit more pressure.
  • Paints: Ready to get a bit messy? Acrylics are great, and for the younger artists, washable paints are a lifesaver

Extra Coloring Tips:

  • Mix and Match: Who says you have to stick to one medium? Combine markers, pain, pencils, and crayons for a truly unique piece.
  • St. Patrick’s Day Cards: Add a personal touch by transforming these sheets into cards. Send them to friends and family for a special surprise! But more about that later.

How to make St Patrick’s Day cards

Looking to sprinkle some St. Patrick’s Day cheer?

These coloring sheets aren’t just for fun; they double as charming greeting cards to send some love and Irish luck to friends and family.

Here are three ways to create your own cards.

  1. Print the foldable coloring pages on regular A4
  2. Print the foldable coloring pages on cardstock paper
  3. Print the foldable coloring pages on regular A4, cut them in half, and glue them onto a folded piece of cardstock paper.

What you’ll need

  • Free Printable Coloring Sheets: Designed in landscape orientation for easy folding.
  • Printer: Equipped with black and white ink.
  • Coloring Tools: Crayons, pencils, paints – your choice!

Depending on your chosen method, you might also need:

Option 1: Print on regular A4 paper

This is the easiest way to make your own color-in St Patrick’s Day cards.

Simply print the foldable coloring pages, color them, fold them in half, and write your message. It’s straightforward and requires minimal materials.

Pros

  • Easy and quick
  • No special materials needed

Cons

  • Feels less like a traditional card.
  • May not stand up on its own.
  • Less aesthetically pleasing compared to cardstock.

Option 2: Print on cardstock paper

Option 2: Print on cardstock paper

If you already have white cardstock paper (slightly thicker and sturdier than regular paper, making it perfect for greeting cards), and your printer can handle this sturdy paper, I would highly recommend you print the foldable design directly onto the cardstock.

In my opinion, this is the prettiest option of all three.

Pros

  • Resembles a professional greeting card.
  • Sturdy and can stand upright.

Cons

  • Not all printers can handle cardstock.
  • Requires cardstock paper.
  • Coloring on cardstock differs from regular paper.

Option 3: Print foldable sheets on regular paper and glue onto cardstock

Option 3: Glue onto cardstock

Personally, I think this is the second to the best option.

First, you’ll print on regular paper, then color, cut out, and adhere to a folded cardstock. This method combines the ease of coloring on paper with the sturdiness of a cardstock base.

Pros

  • No need for a specialized printer.
  • Achieves a genuine card feel.
  • Stands upright.

Cons

  • Requires additional steps of cutting and gluing.
  • Slight variation in appearance due to manual assembly.
