Making Montessori classroom materials (3-part Art cards)

Last week, I worked with another mum from my children’s Montessori school, to make up some 3-part Art cards for the classroom. I haven’t made any DIY home materials like these for a long time, so I had completely forgotten how time consuming it can actually be, so it was nice to have some help.

We were provided with the materials to make these Art cards such as the printouts and coloured card. As you can see, these have been colour coded. We were asked to also laminate them for durability as they will be used in a classroom by many children. These 3-part cards for the 3-6 year age group, consists of a picture, a label (name of the picture), a control card with a picture and the label together.

    1. Hi Heather, I just noticed that the original link to these cards is now not available. These ones that I made up for my children’s classroom were given to me, but I believe they printed their ones from the Montessori Print Shop.

      I have seen 3-Part Art cards on the following websites;
      1. Montessori Print Shop (I used this site a bit when my children were younger) there is a (not free- but small fee)
      2. Montessori for Everyone (not free)

      Let me know how you go, if you find any free ones? There use to be lots on Pinterest at one stage.
      These days we collect Art images and information from Calendars (at discount stores) and Art books from second-hand (thrift stores). We keep them with Art supplies on an Art trolley for display/use.
