We love celebrating holidays in our house. They are fun ways to talk about cultures and celebrations, and are always a great way to come together and bond. St. Patrick’s Day is a fun one to discuss with kids as there is plenty of magical notions to have fun with, and cards, lunchbox notes and jokes are all cute ways to encourage reading. We had so much fun with our Valentine’s Day card sayings for kids, I thought it would be fun to put together a list of St. Patrick’s Day sayings for kids too!
St. Patricks Day Sayings for Kids
St. Patrick’s Day as a child was always a fun holiday for me. I remember thinking about a sneaky leprechaun running around my house, and wondering how I could catch him to see what he looked like.
I remember learing the Irish Blessing Song on the piano for a recital one year, and then playing it each year on St. Patrick’s Day, and smiling when I heard our Irish priest recite it.
Lucky Charms was an appropriate breakfast…because St. Patrick’s Day.
It’s a holiday that I love to continue to celebrate with my own children. These St. Patrick’s Day sayings can be used throughout the month of March. Write some of the funny jokes and leprechaun sayings on notes for your child’s lunchbox. Leave quotes or greetings around the house from the leprechaun. Or, say the Irish Blessing with your family!

There are many different Irish blessings. The first one listed below was the one that I grew up knowing and reciting, and it holds a special place in my heart. I love to sing it to my children 🙂
“May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.”
“Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers—
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours—
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!”
“May your home be filled with laughter
May your pockets be filled with gold
And may you have all the happiness
Your Irish heart can hold.”
