March Preschool Themes

It's time for my favorite March preschool themes!



As you know, preschool themes are my favorite way to organize preschool lessons, so this year, I am sharing monthly sets of preschool theme ideas! I have a collection of 52 preschool themes (with a free calendar!) that corresponds to my preschool curriculum, but there are far more than 52 possible themes you could learn about every year!  In this post I will share a list of ideas for March preschool themes that we've enjoyed, a collections of activities you can use for them and some of my favorite books! These collections have everything from crafts to science activities, and more!

These ideas are perfect for planning a preschool schedule, daycare, or homeschool! I hope it helps make your planning super easy and fun...I know I have a ridiculous amount of fun planning out school time...  :D

Anyway, let's get started...

March Preschool Theme Ideas:


Baby Animals
Dr. Seuss (Read Across America Day is March 2, Dr. Seuss's birthday.)
Rain & Umbrellas & Weather
Rainbows
Spring (The first day of Spring is usually around March 20th.)
Creating & Building
St. Patrick's Day (St. Patrick's Day is March 17th.)
Vincent Van Gogh/Famous Artists (Van Gogh's birthday is March 30th.)

You can easily spend over a week on any of these themes, but we usually limit the themes to one week so everyone's interest is at a high level. You can also have a "mini theme" or a short one or two day unit to celebrate themes you don't have a lot of time for. For example, we often have a one day Van Gogh Day to celebrate art and his birthday.

So...I've gathered up some fantastic resources for y'all! You could easily plan all your March preschool themes and activities with these links, or just browse through them and pick out what looks like fun to add to your already amazing themes!
