Are you feeling lucky? Well, you should be because you’ve just stumbled onto a treasure trove of free St. Patrick’s Day printables, specifically 6 four leaf clover free printable downloads! Use them as free printable St. Patrick’s Day decorations, as a way to welcome spring, or as activities to keep your kids entertained.
Okay, so let me say right upfront that I know a four leaf clover is not the same thing as the traditional St. Patrick’s Day shamrock. So, why am I listing these free printable four leaf clover patterns among my free St. Patrick’s Day printables? Three reasons:
- A shamrock is a type of clover. While the traditional St. Patrick’s Day shamrock only has three leaves, technically a four leaf clover could still be a shamrock, and thus appropriate for printable St. Patrick’s Day decorations!
- Four leaf clovers are supposed to be lucky, and there’s a saying about the luck of the Irish, so they sort of go hand-in-hand.
- Correct or not, many people associate four leaf clovers with St. Patrick’s Day.
