When it comes to Montessori Halloween Activities, I tend to focus on materials that can be used to create related activities, but not 100% Halloween-y. I like to explore related topics like learning about spiders, the human body, and even bats for Halloween! It’s fun, related, but also based on reality. Halloween
Halloween isn’t celebrated here as it is in the United States. In the Netherlands, they have the commercial aspect – one can buy spider webs, and pumpkins in shops, but they don’t go trick or treating. It’s interesting though to see how US culture influences life here more and more the longer I live here. I’m not sure if this makes me miss Michigan more or less, but it certainly makes me nostalgic.
And inspired by that nostalgia, I created some Bats 3 Part cards as part of our home Montessori Halloween activities.

Montessori Halloween Printables: Bats 3 Part Cards
Age You can use these cards for children approximately between the ages of 3-6. Younger children can use the image and control cards for a matching work (2 part cards). Older children that are starting to read can use these as traditional 3 part cards.
Why use 3 part cards?
Using 2 and 3 part cards is great for helping children to understand and master information. For this particular work, the children will get an introduction to different types of bats.

How to present 3 Part Cards
Use the image cards in combination with a Montessori 3 part lesson to teach new vocabulary to kids. Here is how I present new vocabulary:
- Take the tray and place it on your mat on the ground (or table, or wherever you work).
- Lay out the image cards in front of you. Leave enough space for control cards to the right of each image card, and labels underneath each image card.
- Next, match the label cards to the image cards. Place them underneath each image card.
- Check your work by adding the control cards to the right of each image card.
- Gather the materials, and put them back on the tray.
- Bring the tray back to its spot on the shelving unit.
Now it’s your child’s turn!
After, presenting the new vocabulary with a Montessori 3 part lesson, you can adapt this work for toddlers or younger children who cannot read yet. You can offer this work to toddlers as a matching activity. You can do this by printing the control cards twice or using the control cards and image cards together. Have your child match the images to each other.
