It’s Montessori Monday! Can you believe it’ll be the 4th of July soon?! Fortunately, there are lots of awesome Montessori-inspired 4th of July printables and activities available online. If you don’t live in the U.S., you can adapt many of the activities for your own country’s celebrations.
I’ve previously published a number of posts with 4th of July activities: Child-Led Patriotism, Montessori-Inspired Fun with Golf Balls and Ping Pong Balls, and Montessori-Inspired Patriotic Unit. Today, I want to share some 4th of July activities published since my post last year.
I’ll add printables from a number of different posts to make things easier, but the activities will be in separate posts according to when they were published. Be sure to check out my previous posts for some great 4th of July activities. I’ll be adding to this post throughout the month.

Montessori-Inspired 4th of July Activities
Red Treasure Basket from Counting Coconuts (not a specific 4th of July activity, but a baby’s treasure basket could be red, blue, or red, white, and blue for the 4th of July) and On Our Shelves – July & August (photo) from Counting Coconuts
Patriotic Activities for Preschoolers from Carrots Are Orange
Montessori-Inspired 4th of July Activities from Barefoot in Suburbia
Patriotic Practical Life and Math Activity (UPDATE – my latest patriotic post)

Because U.S. patriotic holidays can use many of the same activities, I’ve combined them all on the same board. You’ll find activities for many different levels.
I’d love to hear what you’re planning for the 4th of July!
