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.
Another unit study has come together. This is about the Afterlife, and what happens after we die. Hopefully not too serious a topic
I have put together pages on 9 religions (Pagan as well as mainstream) to allow for comparisons, and understanding of all kinds of views on the Afterlife.
There are 19 pages in total in this Afterlife unit study. One for each of 9 faiths, a few extra pages listing out things like sins, rules or commandments that influence where your soul goes after death.
There are also some worksheets to answer questions and see what you’ve learned. Even a blank sheet so you can draw your own interpretation of any Afterlife world. Oh, and a crossword puzzle because I like crossword puzzles. Continue reading
As the year comes to a close, it’s time to get ready for 2016. That means time for my annual batch of printable calendar pages (see a sample). I’ve kind of gotten my act together this year and have all the variations ready at the same time.
There are sets with just the usual Sabbats and full moons (both north and south hemisphere) and another set with more national holidays included (again, north and south options). Hopefully, that will suit everyone. Just click on the one you want:
This is a slightly more academic lapbook on volcanoes, that would work with any studies of geology or the Earth. I’ve added a little mythology touch to keep it Pagan but it’s mainly a science-based project to learn about volcanoes.
You’ll need your own references for the info, this is just the pieces to make the lapbook.
There is a map, a pocket of vocabulary terms, a flapbook on several volcano Deities, a diagram of the Earth’s layers, and a booklet on the different kinds of volcanoes.
For anyone doing a study on stones or crystals, including their magickal attributes, these printables are great for anyone into notebooking. Great for homeschooling or to be added to a growing BOS volume.
There are 24 pages, showing 23 common stones used in rituals and a blank page you can print out multiple times to make your own sheets (see a sample)
The images are in color, but will print out fine if you are doing black and white. If you are printing in b/w, I suggest letting kids look through the pictures on the computer so they can see the true look of the stones. Without color, they’re all kind of going to look alike.
Figured I’d do some “generic” Pagan crosswords, without any real theme to any of them. I think these are a little tougher than my usual puzzles, and might need some adult help.
I tried doing more riddle-style clues instead of the usual question/answer, which means you have to think a little bit more.
Anyway, there are 3 pages in this little printable set (see a sample).
Ok, it took me more than 2 years but I finally got the second bunch of these fact family flash cards done, this time for multiplication and division. There is an earlier set already done for addition and subtraction, for younger kids just getting into math.
There is a longer explanation on the page about how these work if you’re not familiar with fact families. You can use these cards to memorize each family, up to 10×10.
I thought I would try my hand at drawing some mazes myself, and it’s a tough job! I hope you like these, cuz there won’t be any more. Ok, well I might do more if people rave and tell me how wonderful they are
There are 3 maze pages in this set, one pentacle, one triquetra and one ankh. With the triquetra maze, you have to choose which path to start from. You need to get to the center for all three.
Difficulty? I dunno. They’re not that hard, but my 11-year old daughter got stumped with the pentacle one for a bit.
Not exactly sure where I was going with these, but someone asked for more pages for early readers, and this is what you get. I wrote up 3 Pagan-themed poems for kids, each one highlighting a certain combination of letters.
There is a poem for “ch”, “tr” and “th”.
Not sure if these will help with learning to read, but they were fun to write
If this is what folks want, I will do more with other letter combos.
A longer package than usual, with a 24-page set of printables on the Muses. It’s a unit study to explore creativity following the theme of the 9 Greek Muses.
There are 9 pages illustrating the Muses, with their roles and traits. Along with that are a list of suggested activities that go along with them. They are very loose suggestions and you can adapt them to suit your interests. To help, I’ve include another 14 pages to go with the activities. There are craft templates, poems to read or perform, blank sheets for research or whatever.
Do one activity per Muse, or tackle them all. Might be some fun inspiration for summer activities over the holiday.
Still slogging away at the latest set of printables so I thought I’d do a book giveaway to keep things fresh. I have a practically new copy of ABC Book of Shadows by Katie Lydon Olivares. It’s a bright and colorful boardbook for little Pagan kids to learn the alphabet. Click through and scroll down past the pics for the entry box.
