Little Pagan Acorns – Website for Pagan Children

[Not just for Pagan children that are homeschooled but for any Pagan child)

WHY PAGAN?

The world of homeschooling is dominated by Christians, and the majority of online resources are Bible-based. For someone who is Pagan, it gets pretty frustrating to find great printables that aren’t filled with Bible scriptures or Christian phrasing. So I wanted to create a resource for all of us who are parents and/or homeschoolers who are following other spiritual paths.

My purpose is to create pages that can be mixed in with other resources to add some Pagan terminology, ideals and history so that people can teach their children something that is uniquely Pagan.

I also intend to have selections of nature-based and generically “spiritual” material that could be used by folks who aren’t really Pagan but want an option away from the Christian materials as well.

I know that the term “Pagan” covers a huge range of faiths and beliefs, and I hope that I can properly respect them all here. My own path is more Wiccan and you’ll tend to see more material along that slant (lots of altars, Sabbats and pentacles!). I’d welcome any comments or suggestions from other beliefs so that I can accurately cover them. I apologize in advance if I have included anything that is inaccurate about other religions. Feel free to let me know.

So, welcome to Little Pagan Acorns and I hope that there is something here to help with your Pagan homeschooling and parenting!

#ChalkTheWalk

I was finally able to take a real walk today. It was marvelous even with overcast skies! Before I left I listened to the USA’s NBC channel nightly news and there was a heart touching short segment of children writing cute and some inspirational messages in pictures and words. When I took my fur girls out for their 1st walk with me in over 3 weeks (sprained wrist than overlapped a mild case of COVID-19) I noticed this type of chalk art on the sidewalk in the direction we walk. Uplifting statements like “Be brave”, “Your with family”, and “Sing a song” are just a sampling of what was written. This inspired me to join children and adults across the country to write my own message. I uploaded it on Instagram on the 1st #chalkthewalk. Please join the children, adults, and myself in leaving a message for others. If anyone can make a # with the name #PagansChalkTheWalk please email me at covenlifescoven@gmail.com so we can talk about setting up the # tag today Friday, April 3rd. Thank you!

Please keep those on the front lines taking care of infections people. Many doctors, nurses, and everyone else in the hands on part of caring for people with COVID-19 worldwide that haven’t been home in weeks or months because of their tiring mostly thankless job they have choosen to do. Blessings of staying healthy to you all.

It says “Think Positive with a heart in the middle of the Sun.” The picture is to bring light and love to others. My heart child PynkMoon inspired the picture part.

A Thought for Today

Time for Relaxation

I am not sure what the weather is like where you live but here in a western suburb of Chicago the sky is blue with puffy white clouds, we have a mild temperature and a slight breeze. Right now I am sitting in my backyard, that is quite and peaceful, my familiars were out earlier but decided to go back in.

This is Cleopatra. My 10 1/2 year old Miniature Pincsher.

What are you doing on this great Saturday in the Northern Hemisphere?

Time to Put on Your Thinking Cap and Have Some Fun

Below is a printable sheet with the names of different Greek Goddesses and Gods but the letters for their names are jumbled up. Start out seeing how many you can unjumble without doing an internet search for the Greek Pantheon. When you have done all you can without help than use this general search for the Greek Pantheon to help you finish

Greek Pantheon

Please do not share your answers until Thursday to give everyone that wants to a chance to solve the jumbles on their own. Thank you and good luck. Yes, I am going to do this jumble by the same rules as everyone else. It should be interesting because I have not work very much with Greek Goddesses or Gods. 

Deity JUMBLE

Let’s Have Some Fun

I know some of you are starting the colder months but others of us are in the middle of a very hot summer. So I thought we could all use a couple of good old fashion belly laughs remembering a positive, wonderful day from our childhood. I feel my mom looking over my shoulder ask me, “So which one are you going to choose?”

My day to want to remember for today happened about 14 months after my dad crossed into the Summerlands and I had just become a teenager. My mom’s youngest sister and her family lived on her husbands family’s farm, they have 3 daughters. Also, there were my mom’s brother’s children, the oldest had 3 boys and a girl, my mom’s other sisters children who have 2 girls and 2 boys. So a great coming together of cousins. I should add in here that the only adults in the house all day to choral us children ranging from I think 7 to 13 years old were my mom and aunt. This particular day was the third in a row that it was raining and all 12 of us children were really bored, so the “grown-ups” pulled out some board games and since there were so many of us to play they decided we were going to play Go to The Head of the Class (anyone else remember this game?). They divided us into 2 teams of various ages and we proceeded to play the game like the more modern Trivia Pursuit because there were not enough makers for going around the broad for each of us to have one. In no time at all with Kool-Aid and cookies passed out, we started playing with my mom and aunt taking turns asking the questions from the cards. A question at the 3rd-grade level (which here in The States the child is approximately 9 years old) was “What tree only grows on the Southeast corner on the island of Aruba?

My challenge to you if you decide to pick up the gauntlet is without using an internet search (this was a day in 1971 when most schools or companies or governments did not have computers at all and if they had one it was more of an electric typewriter and calculator) tell me the name of the tree in the comments. I will post the answer tomorrow. Please also share fun and/or exciting childhood memory with us and leave us a challenge to go with it if you want to.
