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.
Started work on one of my homeschool-related projects, and that is a line of book study units to go with Pagan books.
Unfortunately, there aren’t that many good Pagan novels out there to work with so I am starting off with the Goddess Girls series (for ages 9 to 12). Possibly a little young to be doing writing units like this, but I had to start somewhere.
There is a single page worksheet for each of the 11 chapters (see a sample), each with vocabulary words to learn and questions to answer about that chapter. It’s usually just remembering details, rather than in-depth analysis.
For the little Pagans just learning their alphabet. These are pages to practice putting words in alphabetical order.
One page is a mix of generic terms, one is season/Sabbat based and the last one is a little tougher to practice using the second or third letter to get the order right.
For all of them, the list of words is on the left and your child relists them in the spaces on the right. There are 3 pages in all.
Probably not fun enough to be considered puzzles, but they would work nicely for anyone doing homeschooling.
And the wheel rolls on to our next pantheon: the Greeks. This is an 11-page set of coloring pages for the main Greek Gods and Goddesses.
I regret leaving out a few, so there may be a second installment of this coming up with Demeter, Hecate and a few others.
I still have a couple pantheons I want to cover with this but I may tackle something different for my next post so you’re not swamped in coloring pages….
Since I can’t draw, and it’s too hard to make coloring pages with actual people, I’ve done a symbolic type of coloring page for 8 of the main Norse Deities. Kind of like my earlier pages on colors.
Each one has various smaller images that relate in some way to the Gods or Goddesses, not always as traits though.
You can learn more about each one by figuring out what the pictures represent (what’s that boat for Freyr about?).
It’s a billion degrees at my house so forgive my lack of wittiness. I’m too darn hot.
I think this is about 50 pages long, with 5 recipes for each of the eight Sabbats.
The intention is that you can print out the pages you need any time through the year, so they’re done in my usual b/w graphic style (download Sabbat recipes cookbook). It’s written with kids in mind.
There is a mix of sweets, drinks and main course foods in this so you should be able to find the right recipe for your next Sabbat feast.
Sorry, it’s been a while since any new printables have been posted. Working on a bigger project which should see the light of day soon.
At any rate, here is a little bundle of 4 word searches based on various mythological places (one each for Greek, Egyptian, Norse and Celtic).
I picked places from myth but sometimes they are just historic locations for that area. Basically a mix of location names associated with each Pagan culture. I think these would go nicely with the mythological creatures puzzles 🙂
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.
