This post includes March activities for preschoolers! You will find loads of ideas for your Montessori Shelves and resources for March themed activities.
March Activities for Preschoolers
March Activity – Large String Beading
This work is one of the most simple March activities for preschoolers. The beads in this image are from Spielgaben. I am not going to lie, these beads are beautiful. There are other great, far less expensive, options for young children like these Melissa & Doug Beads. A simple work that kids seem to love, large bead stringing spans a wide age range.
March Activities for Preschoolers – Green and Gold Pom Pom Transfer
Pompom Transfers are a wonderful Practical Life Work. It can be a simple hand transfer for the really little ones, or you can adjust the size of the pom poms and add tongs or tweezers to add a bit of fine motor difficulty to the work. You can also integrate a color or size sorting element to the work.
March Activities for Kids – Clover Lacing Card
Fun and festive addition to your shelves and a perfect next work once a child has mastered large string beading. Lacing Cards are an easy DIY like this DIY Clover Card. All you need is cardboard or cardstock cut out, paper hole punch, and yarn or a lacing.
March Themed Activity – Shamrock Math Numeration
Add this work to your bucket of March activities for kids! I created two Shamrock Math numeration and one to one correspondence works. One is a shamrock wheel with ten sections. Each section has a certain number of shamrocks. The child's job is to take mini clothespins or paperclips and match the number on the wedge the circle.
The next numeration work is a one to ten graph with and without shamrocks to help the child.

March Themed Activity – Rainbow Math Cards
Another March themed math activity to add to your bucket of March activities. I create cards with an outline of a pot. In each pot, I added a rainbow for each number through ten. The children get a tray with a cup of Rainbow Erasers and a stack of pots with various numbers of a rainbow on them. The child's job is to place the appropriate number of rainbow erasers onto the card.
March Themed Activity – Study the Harp
An original and maybe my favorite within my bag of March activities for preschoolers I purchased this adorable Mini Harp Replica last year to use in a St. Patrick's Day Preschool Circle. Children like this mini harp. The only issue I had with the children & the harp is that they desperately wanted the harp to play music. Alas, this mini harp didn't play music. I explained the parts of the harp. We also listened to the sound of the harp.
