Welcome to the Little Pagan Acorns site, with printables for Pagan homeschoolers. Word searches, puzzles, mazes, worksheets, craft ideas are more are all on their way for anyone looking for an alternative to the prevalent Christian homeschooling world.
Even if you’re not a Pagan homeschooling parent, you can use lots of these pages to keep your kids amused and to teach them a little bit about various Pagan paths and pantheons.
I have a set of 5 printable Yule cards, ready to be colored in. You fold each page into quarters, and the image should sit nicely on the cover. Some have a message on the inside, and some are blank (see a sample).
Some are kind of cute (at least I think so), and the others are simpler. It’s an nice option if you want a more Pagan-themed card for the season. They’re based on Yule or the solstice as the holiday.
My daughter loves writing haiku poems because they are short and easy to do. If you wanted to introduce your kids to some poetry, why not try some Pagan-flavored haiku?
If you’re homeschooling, this type of project would be around the grade 4 area but any age kids can understand and do some poetry.
This is a 4-page set, with an intro page on haiku, 2 full-page poem pages as examples and a blank page for your own poem (see a sample).
I thought it was time to go back to some of my earlier sections and add some extra content. This is a new set of Deity word searches, with 2 pages each for 5 different pantheons (Greek, Norse, Celtic, Egyptian and Roman).
That’s a total of 10 pages in this download (see a sample). I also added some of the lesser-known Deities compared to the last set.
Since I have already included other word searches like this, I have continued my sophisticated numbering system so you can tell individual pages apart.
My annual set of printable Pagan calendar sheets are up and ready for 2015. As usual, there are 12 pages and each month shows the full moon dates and relevant Sabbats. Lots of space in the squares for writing in notes and appointments (see a sample).
And by popular demand, I’ve added a second set for the southern hemisphere that has the seasonal references and Sabbats reversed.
I plan on doing another set of these in a few days, to include other date information like major national holidays. I know I’ve said that before, but I mean it this time. So if you want one that has things like Mother’s Day and Labor Day, stay tuned.
I’ve made up a new little set of printable bookmarks, with book-lovers slogans (with a Pagan twist of course). It’s a single page file, with 5 bookmarks you can cut out. A couple are adapted from bumper sticker slogans
I thought they would be a nice touch to the back to school season.
After seeing so many Bible-based pages that teach values, I figured there needed to be something more Pagan. I based these pages on the Norse 9 Noble Virtues, though I kept the explanations fairly simple for kids. Each one outlines the virtue along with a quote from the Havamal that illustrates the idea (see a sample).
Use them as handouts, or stick one on the fridge each week to learn a new value. I may repost these as half-pages later as well. Not sure.
Latest lapbook is all about the Norse pantheon and their mythology.
There are 9 pages I think, including some photos of the completed lapbook that you can use as a guide but that don’t need to be printed out. Pieces for 8 major Deities, a tabbed book on the story of Ragnarok, some mythological animals, the 9 noble virtues and a diagram of Yggdrasil that you can label with the various realms.
Just cut out all the bits, fold them up and arrange them as you want on a file folder. Fill in all the pieces with info you learn on the Norse Gods & Goddesses. Click on the image to see and download the file.
At the request of a follower, I’ve remade my original set of alphabet coloring pages so that they are now only half-page in size each.
That makes a total of 13 pages, each with 2 letters on them. You can cut them apart to make big flashcards, or just coloring pages that are a little easier to transport around (see a sample).
I hope this format makes the pages a little more flexible and helpful for you Pagan parents out there.
A different kind of printable coloring sheet for Sabbats and seasons: decorative flags or buntings. There is 24 pages to this set, with 1 each for the Sabbats and then a mix of seasonal designs that you can print in whatever combination floats your boat (see a sample).
You cut each one out, and fold the little flap at the top so you can hang them from a long string or piece of yarn. I think they are a fun way to decorate for the Sabbats or just to honor the seasons.
