A fun craft for Imbolc

Typically, a fun craft for Imbolc entails a Brigid Cross or Corn Dolly. Here’s a different fun to make project for you and your kids. Imbolc is a holiday when the days can be seen as noticeably longer since the Winter Solstice when the night was the longest of the year. Mark the returning strength of the sun with a Fire Dream Drum. Alternately, you could draw a Brigid’s Cross or a seedling on the drum faces instead.

In any case, this happy noise maker is a fun craft for Imbolc celebrations.

craft for ImbolcFire Dream Drums (ages 9-12)

You will need:

Strong paper dessert-sized plates        White glue

Colored markers, paint, crayons          Sturdy yarn

1-hole hole-punch                                   6mm plastic beads

Long wooden dowels                              Scissors

How to make Fire Dream Drums:

Use the markers, paint or crayons to color flame-like patterns on the bottom side of two dessert plates. With the plates held together, rims touching, and the colored sides facing out, use the 1-hole hole-punch to make eight holes at equal spaces around the lips of the plates. Take a wooden dowel and carefully slide it in between the plates. Make sure the punched holes remain lined up. Glue the top and bottom of the dowel where it meets the edges of the plates. Allow the glue to dry.

Cut eight ten-inch (25 cm) pieces of yarn, one for each hole. Take a piece of yarn and thread it through each pair of matching holes. Make a knot close to the hole in the plates, leaving the remaining ends of the yarn free. Thread the yarn through a few beads and tie the ends together with a double knot. Make sure the knot is secure. We don’t want beads flying across the room when we use the drums!

When all the beads are tied on tightly, the drums are ready to use. To use them, hold the dowel between fingers or palms and spin the dowel back and forth so the beads hit the plates to make a steady drum beat.

Make diversity of Pagan culture accessible with books

Books Make Diversity of Pagan Culture Accessible to Schoolchildren

St. Louis, MO: Could there be witches next door? Magical Child Books make diversity of Pagan culture accessible. Teaching diversity is hard enough when the students have some familiarity with the cultures: Islam or Judaism, for instance. But what resources are available for teaching about Paganism or Wicca (sometimes referred to as witchcraft)? And can one girl’s experience of being different as a Pagan apply universally to studying other kinds of difference?

Books Make Diversity of Pagan Culture Accessible to Schoolchildren

While Harry Potter made the idea of magic a common dinner-table topic, the J. K. Rowling version of witchcraft has essentially nothing in common with modern Paganism: a religion based on teachings stretching back thousands of years, venerating nature and incorporating polytheism. Yet, many American students live next door to practicing Pagan families, whether they know it or not. And many Pagan children feel very isolated in classrooms dominated by Christians; they may not even know any other Pagans at their school. Could there be witches next door to you?

Magical Child Books steps into the breach with illustrated children’s stories to make diversity of Pagan culture accessible and understandable.

An Ordinary Girl, a Magical Child
(ISBN 9780979683435) follows one Pagan elementary school child through the cycle of the year: celebrating the eight important holidays (Sabbats), blessing a home, rejoicing in the full moon…and learning how to conquer schoolmate teasing about her different traditions and banish bad dreams through ritual.

Aidan’s First Full Moon Circle
(ISBN 9780979683442) walks a Pagan boy through the excitement of one ritual, and the discovery that he has been chosen to play a very important part in the night’s events.

Smoky and the Feast of Mabon
(ISBN 9780979683466) Follows one girl as she delights in the mystery of the first harvest holiday of Mabon.

“A sound introduction for young readers to neo-Pagan beliefs.” —Sue Bradford Edwards, children’s book reviewer, St. Louis Post-Dispatch (Please see all reviews for An Ordinary Girl, A Magical Child)
