12 St. Patrick’s Day Writing Prompts:

Everything from leprechauns to the true meaning of St. Patrick’s day, these 12 St. Patrick’s Day Writing Prompts will get you writing some grand stories!

  1. On your way home from school, you see a small Irish leprechaun being chased by a cat. You save his life and in return he gives you three wishes. What would you wish for and why? Could any of these wishes are a negative impact on your life?
  2. Write a step by step guide to catching a naughty little Leprechaun. What kind of trap would you create to catch the leprechaun and why? How would you get the Leprechaun to tell you where he has hid his pot of gold?
  3. Four leaf clovers are a sign of luck. Do you consider yourself lucky and why? Try listing at least 4 things that make you feel lucky. You could even draw a large 4 leaf clover in the middle of your page and on each leaf write why you are lucky.
  4. Write a acrostic poem using the following words: Irish, Patrick, Shamrock and Saint
  5. If you were to follow a rainbow, would you really find a pot of gold? Describe your journey and what you really find.
  6. Patrick is partly famous for a myth in which he drove all the snakes out of Ireland. Do a little research about what the true meaning of St. Patrick day is and finish the following sentence: St. Patrick’s Day is about…
  7. Write a limerick about your favourite part of St. Patrick’s Day. A limerick is a funny poem, where the first, second and fifth lines rhyme with each other. And the third and fourth line rhyme with each other. Limericks often start with the line, “There once was a …” or “There was a …”
  8. Why do people wear green on St. Patrick’s Day?
  9. Have you ever been to Ireland? If not, find out something interesting about Ireland and write about it. If you have been, what did you enjoy about it?
  10. Where do leprechauns go when St. Patrick’s Day is over?
  11. Write a poem about rainbows. Here’s a sweet idea, why not draw a large rainbow on your page and in each colour write one line of your poem.
  12. Do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? How do you celebrate it? If you don’t, why not?
