Montessori Fall Round Up of Activities & Free PDFs Printables Downloads With Lisa & Carolyn of Montessori on a Budget

Who doesn't love fall! The seasons are changing from warm summer days to cool Autumn nights, pumpkins are getting fatter on the vine, and leaves are falling in colors of brown, red, orange, and yellow. There are endless seasonal and holiday projects, recipes, and activities... What's a parent to do?
  • Montessori Practical Life Care of the Environment: raking leaves is a favorite Fall activity, suitable for three-year-olds and up.
  • Art: Fall leaves are also great for art projects, including making a leaf collage.
  • Language: Make sure that you and your child/ren KNOW THE NAMES OF THE LEAVES before you pick them, some plants are poisonous and harmful.
  • Fine Motor: Montessori Metal Insets... If you don't have access to a lot of dry leaves, or safe plants, or you have a child who enjoys drawing, the Montessori Metal Insets are great! If you don't own any, another fine motor leaf project is leaf rubbing.
  • Math Counting to 9 or 10

Free Fall and Harvest Bingo Printable

"This Fall and Harvest Bingo game printable PDF has fourteen different game boards, draw cards, and acorn covers to print... It would be good for Pre-K through grade 1, as it emphasizes things in the fall season. This is not a holiday game, just more of a seasonal activity. If your school does not allow Halloween parties, it may allow autumn harvest celebrations. This game would be appropriate. Celebrate the season..." from Carolyn Wilhelm of Wise Owl Factory.
