by Barbara J. Feldman

St. Patrick’s Day Blessings and Poems Printable (** for premium members only)

St. Patrick’s Day is a cultural holiday celebrated on March 17, the death anniversary of Ireland’s patron saint, Saint Patrick. This week’s picks include hundreds of traditional Irish blessings that can be used to decorate your classroom, adorn a St. Patrick’s Day craft project, or inspire the writing of your own original blessing.

DLTK: Saint Patrick’s Day Songs, Games and Poems
Each of DLTK’s St. Patrick’s Day poems and songs includes a printable poster, in your choice of color or black-and-white (to color yourself), and a related craft. The game is a circle game played like Doggy, Doggy, Where’s Your Bone? “Leprechaun, Leprechaun where’s your shamrock? Somebody has it in their Pocket! Guess who? Maybe you? Maybe a monkey from the zoo! Come on Leprechaun find your shamrock.”

English Zone: Saint Patrick’s Day Blessings
“May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow and may trouble avoid you wherever you go.” This page of 27 family-friendly Irish blessings is part of a larger St. Patrick’s Day section at the English Zone. To visit it, use the Back button at the bottom of the page. “As you slide down the banister of life, may the splinters never point in the wrong direction!”

Island Ireland: Irish Blessings
“May your day be touched by a bit of Irish luck, brightened by a song in your heart, and warmed by the smiles of the people you love.” Island Ireland is a website dedicated to Irish culture. The 34 blessings on this page are all child-friendly, but there is a link to Irish Toasts at the bottom of the page that, of course, reference alcohol.
