It’s finally here! I’ve been working on this Montessori Farm Printable Pack for several months now, and I am so excited to announce that it is available starting today!
I created this Montessori Farm Printable Pack because farm life is very interesting to young children — including my own. I wanted to make something that could be used with several age groups and in every area of the classroom. Because I live in America, these printables feature the types of farms that we have here. The Montessori Farm Printable Pack is best for ages 2 to 6 and contains the following activities:
- Types of Farm Structures Sorting Cards
- Types of Farm Animals 3-Part Cards
- Farm Animal Covering Matching Cards
- Types of Farm Machinery 3-Part Cards
- Colors on the Farm Sorting Cards
- Counting Sheep Number Matching Cards
- Farm Skip Counting Puzzles
- The Farm in Art: Winslow Homer
- Farm I Spy & Count
Let’s take a closer look!
The Types of Farm Structures Sorting Cards can be used to learn about silos, barns, and windmills on the farm! There is a definition card for each type as well as five different photographs for each category. Sorting is an important visual discrimination skill that helps build future problem solving skills!
I have never met a child who wasn’t fascinated by farm animals, so I had to include these Types of Farm Animals 3-Part Cards. This set includes 15 common farm animals and can be used for picture matching, word to picture matching, and so much more! I Believe in Montessori has created a free guide listing 20+ ways to use 3-part cards if you need some ideas!
To further hone those visual discrimination skills, I also included these Farm Animal Covering Matching Cards! This set zooms in on the fur/feathers of 12 different farm animals. You could cut out just the circle on the matching cards, but I opted to use the circle within the white square to increase the difficulty level a bit.
For all of the little heavy machinery fans out there, I made sure to include these Types of Farm Machinery 3-Part Cards. This set includes 8 common types of machinery you might find on a farm.
I look for color everywhere I go, so of course I included these Colors on the Farm sorting cards! They are in the same style as the sorting cards in my Ultimate Montessori Color Bundle, so if you already have that set these will fit right in! These can be used with the Montessori color tablets cards (included in the Montessori Farm Printable Pack) or with real color tablets if you have them.
I call this activity “Counting Sheep” because I crack myself up! I made some number cards in the style of the Montessori Sandpaper Numbers and included a picture of that number of sheep for numbers 1 to 10.
I’m also pretty proud of these Farm Skip Counting Puzzles! The numbers on each puzzle correspond to that base number’s bead bar color, and the picture in the puzzle contains that base number of animals! I love being creative with controls of error like that. This set contains a puzzle for counting by 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s, 7s, 8s, 9s, and 10s.
I love matching works of art to our Montessori homeschool preschool themes, so I included these paintings by Winslow Homer depicting farm life. You can use these for decoration, matching, a game of memory, matching colors in them, or any number of ways! We will be using these with Color Box 3 to match different shades of color in the paintings.
And finally we have a Farm I Spy & Count Activity! This isn’t really Montessori-inspired, but it’s a favorite with our family and fun to take on the road when you have a long wait in a waiting room or on a road trip. I like to laminate these and pair them with a dry erase marker so the activity can be done over and over again.

And that’s not the only Montessori-Inspired Farm Printable I have up my sleeve! I’ve also created a fully printable Montessori Grammar Farm! That’s right — a printable farm mat, printable [and buildable] barn, printable people and animal figures, and printable labels.
P.S. You can also get the Printable Grammar Farm with Labels in Cursive!
