Easy St. Patrick’s Day Craft for Kids
For any holiday, I’m always looking for easy crafts to make with or for my kids! When I decided to throw a St. Patrick’s Day party, I came up with the idea of making a DIY Coloring Page – with my Cricut! A Free DIY Coloring page was perfect for all of the kids to take home as a party favor.
Although sometimes I download Free Printable Coloring Pages, I decided to make this coloring page for my kids! I could pick all of the images I wanted, and with my Cricut Access subscription, all of my images were FREE! (Do you struggle with finding Free Cut Files? Check out Cricut Access! You get access to 1000s of FREE designs, fonts, and also discounts on Cricut supplies!) Can you imagine how many different kinds of coloring pages you can make with all of the Cricut designs available?!
If you don’t want to use your Cricut Pens, you can use the Print then Cut feature to print out this coloring sheet!

How to Make a St. Patrick’s Day Coloring Page for Kids
Instead of printing this St. Patrick’s Day Coloring Page, I used the “Draw” feature on my Cricut machine to actually draw the coloring page! It was a great boredom buster for my kids to watch the Cricut at work.
What do you Need to Make these St. Patrick’s Day DIY Coloring Pages?
- Cricut Machine (Explore Air 2 or Maker will work best)
- White Cardstock
- LightGrip Cutting Mat
- Cricut Pen, Black
Alternatively, you can use Printer Paper and your Printer to Print out this design!
Since all of the St. Patrick’s Day designs included in my coloring page are Cricut Design Space images (including the little leprechauns!), you can access my Design File and save yourself from designing it all on your own!

I designed this coloring page to be 8.5×11″, so it will easily fit in a school folder, or if you make a bunch of them, they can easily be made into a coloring book!
The key to making a DIY Coloring Page with your Cricut is to change all of your designs on the page to “Draw” instead of “Cut.” That tells the machine that you want to use a Cricut Pen!
It takes a little bit to draw all of the images, but it is fun to watch the Cricut do it’s thing! And in the end, you have truly custom coloring pages!
*To Print your Design instead of draw, choose “Select All” and then “Flatten.” You will have to change the size of your artwork to fit the Print then Cut constraints, and then trim the registration box (black lines) from your page or create a box for the Cricut to then cut out your design.
