Printable Montessori at Home Practical Life Ideas
Many parents are looking for good quality Montessori materials for toddlers, preschoolers and kindergarteners, so I think that this is a great set for them! The Montessori method of teaching can get expensive, but it doesn’t have to be.
This bundle with 10 sets are right on the money when it comes to teaching children Montessori Practical Life skills, which I also like to call “lifelong skills” because they are used for the rest of their years on earth.
In our Montessori homeschool curriculum checklists for Montessori Practical Life exercises LINK, we mention a more extensive list, but this bundle is awesome to get you started!
This bundle includes these homeschool printable sets:
- Community Members 3-Part Cards: perfect for children to learn who works around them to make their communities better.

They can color some of the items of clothing, they can practice cutting them out and master the pincer grip to hang those clothes on a line (ribbon or cord) using clothespins in different sizes.
- Practical Life Dressing Frames 3-Part Cards: one of the most important skills for children to learn when getting dressed is not only to put their clothes on straight, but to learn to use buttons, zippers, laces, etc independently.
