Montessori-Inspired Bat Activities Using Free Printables

By Deb Chitwood from Living Montessori Now

I love bats as a Halloween theme, although bats are interesting to study at any time of year. For preschoolers, I like my themes to be non-scary, so I've included lots of cute bat photos and printables. The vampire bat photo is slightly scary, but the least scary one I could find!
I have lots of free bat printables and activities, including a bat-themed pack for newsletter subscribers at

You'll find many activities for preschoolers through first graders throughout the year along with presentation ideas in my previous posts at PreK + K Sharing. You'll also find ideas for using free printables to create activity trays here: How to Use Printables to Create Montessori-Inspired Activities. At Living Montessori Now, I have a post with resource links of Free Printables for Montessori Homeschools and Preschools.
