What is the difference between a shamrock and a clover?

Another typical St. Patrick’s Day symbol you see is the four leaf clover. For the longest time, I didn’t know that a shamrock and a clover were different plants. So what is the difference?

From what I understand, shamrocks always have three leaves. Clovers on the other hand, can have a fourth leaf. If you’re interested, I also have both a large and small size four leaf clover template just like this one.


Ways to use the template:

Coloring page

Print out a bunch of copies of the shamrock outline and set out some art supplies on a table. Anything from crayons, markers, colored pencils or whatever else you have around the home or classroom would work great.

Kids can be creative decorating the shamrock however they would like. You can either leave them as is or cut out the shape and hang them all around for some fun and festive St. Patrick’s Day decor.

Using the template as a stencil

First, print out the template onto cardstock and cut it out. Then,m you can use is to trace the shamrock shape onto various shades of green construction paper. It would be a fun way to decorate your home or classroom this March.

Favorite Printable Supplies:

These are a few of my favorite supplies that I use for printable games and activities:

  • White Cardstock: For most projects, I recommend printing onto cardstock. It is much more durable than standard printer paper and often produces a higher quality print.
  • Crayons: A staple in any crafting household. Crayola is always the top notch choice!
  • Kid Friendly Safety Scissors: These are perfect for little kids learning how to use scissors. They cut paper but not fingers or hair!
  • Glue Sticks: These disappearing purple glue sticks are by far my favorite! I love buying them in bulk since we use them so often!
  • Lamination Machine: Laminating printables are a great way to make them last longer. If you are planning on laminating to make games reusable, be sure to get a bunch of dry erase markers as well.
  • Dry Erase Pockets: Dry erase pockets are a great alternative to using a lamination machine when wanting to make printable games and activities reusable.
  • Printer: A high quality printer is always recommended for the best results. If you are in need of a printer this Brother Wireless Printer is a great choice.
