Even with a small budget, you can prepare attractive, hands-on activities for your classroom or home. I have LOTS and LOTS of free resources for you (more every year)! I’ve been publishing posts at Living Montessori Now since April 2010 and themed free printables and Montessori-inspired activities in conjunction with PreK + K Sharing on the 15th of each month since December 15, 2011!
UPDATE: I have posts for current years. To see my latest post like this and current monthly theme, check out my Monthly Themed Activities Category.
Every month on the 15th, I share free printables for a unit study or seasonal or holiday theme along with Montessori-inspired activities I create using the free printables. I typically include a variety of activities for skill levels from preschool (sometimes toddlers) through early elementary.
Free Printables and Montessori-Inspired Activities on the 15th of the Month throughout 2020
Following are the themed posts I published on the 15th of each month in 2020:
In 2016, my daughter, Chrissy, and I started designing themed printable packs for my newsletter subscribers each month to go with my themed posts on the 15th of the month. It’s developed into a resource library for my newsletter subscribers. As of today, there are 59 themed printable packs in the resource library. All of them are available to newsletter subscribers along with each new themed pack that’s published on the 15th of the month (check this link to see the latest monthly themed post!)
If you subscribe to my mailing list, you’ll get the 177-page KHT Montessori geography album free! And you’ll get the password each month to the Living Montessori Now resource library with a new Montessori-inspired subscriber freebie each month!
My Previous Years’ Themed Posts at Living Montessori Now and PreK + K Sharing:
Before 2017, I didn’t have a designated shelf for my themed activities. The themed activities were placed on the shelves according to curriculum area (which is another way to display your themed activities). From 2017 on, I’ve had a designated themed shelf (feature shelf) and taken a photo of my themed shelf at the beginning of each unit. You can see the themes shared in my post on how to prepare themed Montessori shelves. I update it each month.
More Posts with Links to Free Printables
I have lots of posts with free printables and/or links to free printables. These posts started soon after I started my blog in 2010. So there are more than ten years’ worth of free printables. You’ll find them all in my free printables category.

Scotch Thermal Laminator – my favorite laminator for printables … inexpensive and works great! (Note: You can save time and money while helping the environment by only laminating what you really need to laminate for home use. I now only laminate materials that could get wet or messy (such as printables used with water beads or playdough).
