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’ve written an alphabet poem that highlights a mix of Pagan images and ideas, across a few different pantheons though I admit there is a signficant Wiccan and nature slant to it.
Each letter has a short poem, with varying types of rhyming patterns from one to the next. This Pagan alphabet poem is 7 pages long and is basically “plain text” without illustration as it is meant to be read aloud (see a sample page).
The plan with this poem is to create a lovely print book with full-color illustrations in the near future. For now, you can have copies of the text as a free download.
And yes, the wheel has turned yet again and 2017 is soon upon us. That means a new set of printable calendar pages with Pagan holidays and full moon dates.
I have the usual north and south hemisphere versions, but haven’t had time to put together the ones with extra secular holidays included. I may have them available soon, no guarantees. Life is currently limiting my printable-making time.
I’ve always tried to include a mix of different Pagan paths, but have fallen into a bit of a rut with the usual Greek, Egyptian, Norse and Celtic groups. So I wanted to get some input on what other pantheons or cultures you’d like to see included. Click through to my new poll, and offer up some suggestions.
We’re come to the last set of Deity coloring pages, with the final of the four main pantheons.
Though I am naming this batch “Celtic”, I have made a bit of a mix of Irish, British, Gaulish and other similar regions here.
So here are 11-pages of Celtic Deity coloring pages, using symbols and attributes to make up the illustrations.
And we are back to our pantheon coloring project, with a new 9-page set of Egyptian deity coloring pages.
If you’re not familiar with this type of printable, these are symbolic page, with images and text that illustrates the concepts, traits, myths and symbols that go along with each God or Goddess.
Egpytian deities tend to overlap a LOT, so it’s not an error that most of the Goddesses are connected to motherhood and children. That’s just the way it is.
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.
