Irish Flag

This craft was inspired by St. Patrick's Day in the Morning . To learn more about the book and see all our St. Patrick's Day activities, click here

Have fun with your young reader creating an Irish flag just like Jamie’s. Our version is a wee bit bigger than Jamie’s but still perfect for marching in a parade around your house, yard or down the street.
Note: In the illustrations of St. Patrick's Day in the morning, the flag is show as green, white, and yellow. The flag is in fact green, white and orange. Read about the history of the Irish Flag here

Irish Flag


  • 9 x 12 Construction paper –1 sheet each of white, green and orange
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Cardboard tube from wrapping paper

  1. Lay green sheet of construction paper vertically and measure 4” from the end. Draw a line and then ask your reader to cut on the line. Repeat with the orange paper. 
  2. Lay the white sheet of construction paper vertically.  Apply glue to the back of the green 4” section and glue to one end of the white sheet. Repeat with the orange sheet and apply to the opposite end of the white sheet. Allow flag to lay flat to dry completely.

    For marching in your parade you might want to attach the flag to a flag pole, fashioned from a cardboard tube from wrapping paper. Simply glue the flag to the tube, green side closer to the pole, and let dry. If you anticipate enthusiastic flag waving, reinforce with staples.
