It’s our favorite season and you can make it extra special with these 10 Fall Montessori printables for kids!
They are Montessori-inspired, but can be used for all homeschoolers, regardless of your homeschooling style.
Fall Homeschool Printables
If you like unit studies, then you will love this Fall-themed set of activities that your children can do to learn more about Fall.
Look beyond printable worksheets and have your children learn with fun hands-on activities instead like these Fall nature activities.
1 Fall child hair decoration with Fall berries, foliage, etc:
As your beautiful children develop socially and emotionally, as well develop their personalities and unique sense of self.
In this activity, use the leaves and other Fall items to decorate children’s hair and hats.
2 Fall cutting practice (3 levels of difficulty):
Cutting is a Practical Life activity for children that follow the Montessori approach.
As children learn to cut, they will need to start with the easiest level and move on to harder shapes.
So, they will begin with the two pages that have straight lines.
Then the two pages that have wavy and zigzag lines.
And lastly, they will learn to cut the hardest ones, the shapes on the last two pages.
There are many types of homeschool learning and this activity fits all of them!
3 Drawing grids for symmetry and Art:
In Montessori education, children learn symmetry, Art skills and drawing by copying the leaf halves on the cards.
Mirroring images and copying them is a great skill to practice.
This is my children’s favorite out of the 10 printable activities for kids.
Start with the simpler ones, such as the upside down heart leaf and work your way up to the maple leaf.
4 Fall lace looming shapes for pre-writing and fine motor skills:
These are fun and very common Montessori materials in the Practical Life subject.
The Montessori teacher (or guide) will cut out the shapes ahead of time.
Use a whole punch to make holes on the white circles.
Set it up on a wooden tray and on the shelf where the child can reach it.
I like to print these on cardstock or laminate them for durability and to make them sturdier.
Then, the child will use a thin ribbon or a shoelace to lace all the way around.
There are two basic ways of looming them.
Bottom and bottom or bottom and top.
5 Leaf feeding activity for eye-hand coordination and dexterity:
This is one of the most fun activities for preschoolers because they practice fine motor skills.
Print the brown burlap sheet on regular paper. The leaves on cardstock.
Cut out the brown burlap strips and tape or glue together to make a long band.
Tape or use a glue stick on the “button” and color band to each end of the strip.
Cut out the leaves and use an exact-o knife to cut the slits in the middle.
For durability, put a slit of scotch tape on the slit or laminate before cutting the slit.
Gently feed the leaves through the button (the strip on the other end will stop them from falling off).
Fall Printables for Montessori at Home
6 Paper strip weaving with Fall patterns:
This activity is perfect for your homeschool curriculum, whether it is The Montessori Method or not!
Print out the sheets you want to use for your project.
You need 1 base sheet (with solid strips on each end) and 1 strip sheet (with leaf patterns).
Cut the base strips, stopping at the solid strips (don’t cut through those!).
The leaf pattern strips are cut all the way through.
Feed perpendicularly through the base sheet, over and under, alternating until all the strips are loomed.
Glue them down as an option.
If you really like them, you can use them as placemats or staple them to make baskets out of them.

7 Parts of a fruit printable images and labels:
Children will be working hard on this one as the terms can be a little complicated, but it is so worth it!
Cut out the labels and follow the control of error.
It also includes a simple 6-piece puzzle, in case you have children in different ages.
The younger one can work on the puzzle while the olde child can work on the labeling.
8 Parts of a leaf printable images and labels:
This labeling activity is the same as the parts of the fruit above, except that it is simpler.
It only contains 4 parts, so it will be easier for children of all ages to learn.
Cut out the labels and follow the control of error.
9 Fall leaf patterns:
Children will learn 4 different patterns – ABAB, AABAAB, ABBABB and ABCABC.
All sheets are labeled on the first row to let the child know what kind of pattern they are doing.
Cut out the leaf squares and place them or glue them in the correct spot.
Laminate these sheets for durability, if you plan on using them every Fall.
Use the answer sheets as a control of error.
10 Fall Alphabet 3-part cards:
These are my favorite, so I saved the for last.
I made 3-part cards for every letter of the English alphabet using Fall words only.
It is fantastic nomenclature cards and the images are beautiful!
Not only will children practice the alphabet, but they will be learning words used around the Fall season.
Print this set twice if you want to use them as 3-part cards.
Or print them once, if you want to use them as alphabet flashcards.
So what do you think?
Isn’t this an awesome set?!
Come get it here.
