A Little Saint Patrick Coloring Page.


I spent the weekend mostly sick in bed, reading and doodling to pass the time. I had a stack of picture books that I read to the kids too. I came across our copy of St. Patrick's Day by Gail Gibbons and thought her illustrations of the saint were lovely. I do love and own so many of her books!

So I got my pencil out and made a free-hand copy of St. Patrick from her book. I changed some of the details to make him look more "Catholic" (as in I added crosses to his vestment). The kids love how it came out and I was surprised that it came out so cute as well!


So if you want to print out a copy for yourself or your kids to color, here is the link!

Thanks -saw it on Pinterest. Very cute version. I really like Gail Gibbons books in general and appreciate you Catholic-ing it up. (wink)

This is lovely! I will use a version in my classes at school. It's hard to find a nice picture of St. Patrick. Thanks!
