St Patricks’s Day Five Little Shamrocks with free templates

Counting Up

One green shamrock, in the morning dew,
Another one sprouted,
and then there were two.

Two green shamrocks, growing beneath a tree;
Another one sprouted,
and then there were three.

Three green shamrocks, by the cottage door;
Another one sprouted,
and then there were four.

Four green shamrocks, near a beehive;
Another one sprouted,
and then there were five.

Five little shamrocks, bright and emerald green,
Think of all the luck
these shamrocks will bring.

Counting Down

Five little shamrocks, growing by the door
(child’s name) picked one and that left four.

Four little shamrocks, green as they could be
(child’s name) picked one and that left three

Three little shamrocks, sitting by my shoe
(child’s name) picked one and then there were two

Two little shamrocks, nodding in the sun
(child’s name) picked one and that left one

One little shamrock for St Patrick’s Day fun
(child’s name) picked one and that left none

Five Little Easter Eggs with a free template

Five little Easter eggs,
lovely colours wore,
Mother ate the pink one,
Then there were four.

Four little Easter eggs,
two and two, you see,
Daddy ate the green one,
Then there were three.

Three little Easter eggs,
before I knew,
Sister ate the purple one,
Then there were two.

Two little Easter eggs,
oh, what fun!
Brother ate the yellow one,
Then there was one.

One little Easter egg,
See me run!
I ate the last one,
And then there were none.

This is such an easy felt set to make. Decorate the eggs with Ric Rac as I have done or use your imagination and try sequins and ribbon.

I’ve provided a template for the egg pattern here.

The purple one got blown out  (blow)
Then there were four.

The green one got blown out, (blow)

The yellow one got blown out, (blow)

Burning brightly, count them all
Puff, I blow with all my might
And out goes one little candle light.
