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.
Test your pantheon knowledge with this 10-page set of Deity jumble puzzles (see a sample). There are 2 pages each for Norse, Greek, Egyptian and Celtic Gods, and 2 mixed world pages (that include names from more than these 4 pantheons).
I’ve tried to include some of the lesser-known Deities so you might need to do a little research on the tough ones. I’m sure the Gods will appreciate your effort. Continue reading
I made these up a while ago for another project and just realized how great they would be for some Pagan trivia fun at home. There is no real “game” to go with these, but you can use them to stump each other during a coven meeting, festival gathering or anytime.
Each page has 10 cards, with 2 questions on each card. They can be printed as-is and cut apart, or they should work if you print them on perforated business card sheets (no guarantees on that!). With 10 sheets, that’s a total of 200 trivia questions. Click on the pic to download the file.
Most are Pagan, but I’ve tossed in other religions, new age and pop culture stuff too. Some are going to be too obscure for most kids which can make them fun for the whole family.
Ok, these were a total impulse make, so they’re pretty simple even for me.
There are 4 Valentine’s designs, each one a quarter page in size. They are cut out and just given flat, like the small valentines kids usually give out (they aren’t meant to be folded). Text is outline so you can color them. Two are simply symbol-based and two have lame puns, because I love lame puns.
If you like a certain design, you can print out just that one (4 to a page) or print out the page at the end for a mixed batch. You might not want to hand these out at school, but they’d be fun in a coven or family setting.
My daughter loves to write so I thought these might be fun for some other Pagan families looking to find something to do on these long winter afternoons.
The idea is that the text at the top sets the scene, and your child gets creative and writes the rest of the story. Or even a poem inspired by the idea. Whatever.
Get to know the months of the year with this new 12-page set of printables (see a sample).
Basic info on each month of the year, with a Pagan slant, is included in each page: where the name comes from, how many days, what sabbats are in that month and what full moon’s are called in each month.
Great to pin up on the fridge or bulletin board each month for younger kids learning about the year.
These would work nicely together with the days of the week pages for calendar displays.
I said I’d do it, and I did it! I’ve made up a second set of 2015 printable calendar pages with additional holidays. So this set has all the full moon dates, Sabbats as well as the major observances and national holidays (mainly USA and Canada).
And I did the same thing for the Southern hemisphere set too, but with more Australian holidays. Sorry if I’ve excluded some nation’s days. There is only so much space….
You can find the original ones here.
Some people call these things fortune tellers, or “cootie catchers”. At any rate, I thought a few Pagan-themed ones would be fun.
I’m pretty sure most people know how to use them, so I just included some basic folding instructions. If you really have no clue, drop me a note and I can elaborate
The 11-page set has Egyptian, Greek, and Norse deities, as well as a more Wiccan one with altar tools, and one with the seasons.
Each one is either blank inside (you can write in your own answers), or one with answers is included. The answers are the same for each one. (see a sample)
Finally, I’ve got lapbooks done for all the major pantheons now. It’s a little simpler than the other ones, I guess I’m running out of lapbook motivation
Still, there are 10 deities, a map, a blurb on the druids, a blank piece to draw your own Stonehenge and a flapbook with the story of Cerridwen and Gwion.
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).
