April Activities for Preschoolers & Your Montessori Shelves


This post includes April themed activities for preschoolers. Spring is such a lovely time for renewal and growth.

Everything feels fresh and exciting for learning. So, what better time to switch up the materials in our space?

Most of these works have a spring theme and will touch upon many areas of Montessori. I hope you enjoy these April activities for preschoolers!

Observation Print: Model T

April is a wonderful month to practice the art of observation. Every month or so I plan to rotate Gentle Revolution’s Bits of Intelligence cards in this frame. The detail on the objects (ranging from human organs to insects to people) is extraordinary.

The images always draw questions and result in a learning conversation. Children are drawn to these cards and study them. There is a magnifying glass for closer examination.
