Hi there friends! I’m Natalie from Anchors to the Soul, and today I have a fun idea to help with your St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. One of my favorite things to do is create simple, but memorable moments for every holiday. These St. Patrick’s Day Letter and Banner Printables will fill your St. Patrick’s Day with extra love and appreciation.
Activity Days St. Patrick’s Day Letter
I originally thought of this idea while looking at the Faith in God for Girls requirements under “Serving Others”. The booklet states: “Write a letter to a teacher, your parents, or your grandparents telling them what you appreciate and respect about them.”
Activity Day leaders can prepare a short lesson about respect and then print the letter templates for their girls to use. I probably would have them make a green treat or decorate a clover shaped cookie as well. I have provided a full page and smaller versions of the letter template to fit the needs of any group. Another idea would be for the leaders to write a letter to each of their girls.
St. Patrick’s Day Banner
I’m not currently serving as an Activity Days leader, but want to express my love for my family in a similar, festive way. I love to decorate my children’s bedroom doors with something for each holiday. A shamrock banner with little notes of appreciation will be perfect.
To make the banner, follow these simple steps:
- Download and print the templates (you can print more to make your banner longer).
- Cut out shamrocks.
- Use a small hole punch (I used 1/4″) to punch holes on marked spots.
- Thread a ribbon throughout (be sure to have the “Dear” and “Love” shamrocks at the beginning and end respectively).
- Write a short message of respect or appreciation on each shamrock.
- Hang the banner by either tying it off on each end or using tape (make sure your chosen tape is safe to use on doors/walls/wherever you’re hanging it).
Parents could make one for each of their children or use them as a Family Home Evening activity. If my children were older I would have each family member draw names and write messages to that parent/sibling. Or you could have everyone write one message on each banner and have them say “Love, Your Family”.
I hope you enjoy these St. Patrick’s Day Printables and use them soon. Leave a comment with how you plan to use these printables and/or tag @littleldsideas on Instagram or Facebook so we can see how you make them your own.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
