Hey there Crafty Readers! It’s Sydney from Tastefully Frugal and I’m excited to be here again with you today sharing a fun St. Patrick’s Day activity. I remember as a little girl, when I would go visit my grandparents, my grandpa would always flip open the Sunday paper to the crossword puzzle and he wouldn’t leave the table until he finished it. I would sit there and watch him, and as I got older I would try to help him finish the puzzles.
From watching him do crossword puzzles I grew to love words, reading and writing. I used to try to find the longest word possible to complete a sentence; I wrote some pretty ridiculous papers in fifth grade. I am hoping to pass my love for the written word on to my boys as well. And what better way to learn new words then with my grandpa’s favorite past time; crossword puzzles.
I had a lot of fun creating and researching this St. Patrick’s Day crossword puzzle I’m sharing today. I learned a lot about the holiday; like did you know that in the 17th century they used to eat shamrocks to freshen their breath?! I also learned how to create a crossword puzzle in Microsoft Word; which is super easy but does take a little time. I’ll be sharing a tutorial over on Tastefully Frugal later this month. Download your crossword (I included the answer sheet too) and share it with your kids, grandkids, or anyone else you know who loves crosswords. This can also make a great class project for teachers for the holiday as well.
