January Themed Activities for Kids

Best of 2014 - My Most Popular Post
Montessori Monday - Montessori-Inspired Color Games {Free Printables}

Welcome to my calendar of January themed activities for kids … and to my monthly calendar observances and themed activities series. I have monthly themed activities for each month of the year. I update each month’s themed activities post in the last week before the month begins.

Updated for January 2016 (January changing dates are listed here both separately and merged with the monthly list)


You’ll find all my unit studies and holiday posts listed by themes in my “Montessori-Inspired Unit Studies + Holiday and Seasonal Activities” post. Here you’ll find lots of themes for January 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 January themes for preschoolers through early elementary, although I’ve added some calendar observances for pre-teens and teens. Just choose the observances that are best for your child/family.

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