Updated for April 2014 (For a list with changing dates merged with the monthly list, see my April 2014 Calendar Observances and Activities.)

I love spring, so April is an especially fun month for me. Today, I’m sharing my calendar of April themed activities for kids. You’ll find all my unit studies and holiday posts listed by themes in my “Should You Use Unit Studies?” post. Here you’ll find lots of themes for April according to holiday or calendar observances.

You’ll find more links for calendar observances in my “Enliven Your Homeschool with Some Calendar Fun” post. The post has links to resources for calendar observances for any level. I’m focusing here on April themes for preschoolers through early elementary, although I’m adding some calendar observances for pre-teens and teens.

Note: Be sure to click the images in my Memetales photo collage. You’ll actually go to the post containing the image!

April Dates that Can Be Used for Themed Activities

Calendar observances are great for mini units or even units that might last the whole month.


I’ll add to this post as I publish new posts that fit in with April-themed observances.

Are you planning to use any themed activities in April?
