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.
The next installment in our larger Tarot project is now finished. The Tarot Manual for Kids is now available, and it can be used with our custom card designs or with any traditional deck you already own.
This book is about 40-pages long, and outlines the simple meaning and symbolism behind each card. It’s longer than most of our printable sets, so it might take a minute or two to download.
It currently doesn’t have any material on how to layout the cards or interpret meanings. This is a strictly card-by-card interpretation. Future pages will have more instruction on the how of Tarot.
Just a quicky single page printable today. Around our house, we are always scrounging around for bookmarks because we homeschool and probably use about 8 different books a day.
So I whipped up a little batch of small bookmarks with Pagan and Wiccan symbols on them. Just print them out, cut them apart and you’ll have an almost-instant batch of 10 Pagan bookmarks.
I am a little shocked that this idea hadn’t come to me sooner. A lapbook on the moon, that mixes astronomy and a little Pagan magick too.
There are pieces that focus on spells and deities, but also more pieces on the science aspects of the moon. The photos show you one idea on how to arrange everything. How you put it together is up to you.
There are more photos on the last page that might help you see how the folds are all done if you’re not already familiar with our lapbooks.
I got inspired by the current range of adult coloring books, using the detailed designs known sometimes as “zentangle”. Not sure if that’s a term anyone is going to recognize, but I had to call these something. So that’s what they are.
This download has 4 pages, with a pentacle, triquetra, ankh and a triple moon (see a sample). They are quite a bit more detailed than the other coloring pages I’ve done, so they’d be better for patient older kids or adults.
Please note that these are hand-drawn, so the lines are aren’t perfectly dark and smooth. That just adds to their charm, I think.
The printable Tarot for Kids has finally been completed!
This is a 30-page PDF file, with a complete deck of original Tarot cards in 2 sizes (1 set is 4/page and 1 set is 10/page). Just print out the pages you need. They are in full color and use a fun mix of cartoon images to illustrate the cards in the traditional way.
Unlike most of the material on this site, this printable is not free. Sorry, it was many hard weeks in the making and I figured that a price tag of 99 cents was still pretty fair.
I realized that I really don’t have too much for the preschool audience, so I thought I would try something different. These are printables for 4 different styles of lacing cards.
Print them out on heavy cardstock (or laminate them), punch holes and let your kids lace them up with yarn or string.
It’s a great quiet activity to help kids with fine motor control, and to generally keep their hands busy. This is a 2-page set with a pentacle, triquetra, ankh and Norse hammer symbols.
I think I’ve mentioned that I wanted to tackle a few more “academic” subjects for Pagan homeschoolers, and this is the first of 4 batches of basic math worksheets.
Each set has 3 levels from easy to more difficult (more digits basically). Adorned whimsically with Pagan symbols, these are just standard math practice sheets. Just addition and subtraction now, but there will be all 4 main math functions coming up. Each set has 6 pages (2 pages per level).
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.
