Montessori-Inspired Friendship Activities Using Free Printables


By Deb Chitwood from Living Montessori Now

A friendship theme is great at any time of year, and it’s perfect at the start of a new school year! So, today I have lots of free friendship printables and activities for you! There’s also a friendship-themed pack for newsletter subscribers at!

You’ll find many activities for preschoolers through first graders throughout the year 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.
