Tarot for children-I copied this from my pagan homeschool site on fb, I thought it would interest you.


If you have tarot cards around your home, it’s likely that sooner or later your children will show some interest. Here are a few ideas on how to introduce you kids to tarot.
Ages 3-6 Create coloring pages with tarot themes or get a copy of The Original Tarot Coloring Book. Talk with your child about why you use the ca...rds and what they can and cannot do. Discuss how to care and store cards. Let them handle your cards with supervision.
Ages 7-11 When the child seems mature enough to care for a deck of their own, gift them one of your older decks or purchase a new, age-appropriate deck for them. Help them to start a tarot journal, exploring cards one at a time. Have the child write down the name of the card, what they see on the card, help them pick out any visual clues to it’s meaning, how the card makes them feel, and finally a short description of the “book” meaning of the card. On this site, you can print tarot cards out for coloring to go along with the journaling. If your working with a child with an artistic streak, consider buying a package of blank cards, such as can be picked up for making flashcards at your local business supply shop, and let them create their own deck. They might be interested in learning how to make a collage tarot deck. This could easily be adapted to do with kids as a long-term craft project.
When looking for cards for the younger crowd, make sure to consider the imagery of the cards and if they are age/maturity appropriate. Here are a few decks that are worth taking a look at:
Tarots of the Gnome
African Tarot Deck
Inner Child Tarot
The Whimsical Tarot
Ages 12 + When you decide that your kids are ready, start them off doing simple readings. An easy way to start is to let them pick a card in the morning that might influence them along their day. Have them write it down in their tarot journal. At the end of the day, ask them how the card might have applied to their day, or if it helped them be on the look-out for ways to improve how things went. As they get more comfortable with the cards, move on to a simple three cards spread for the past, present and immediate future, and then on to more difficult spreads.
A child’s interest in the tarot may change as the years go by. Be sure to take their lead in what they are most interested in learning about at any given time, and encourage them to explore their interests as they come up. Though they might set the cards away for a while, the knowledge that you help them learn about this tool will always be there for them when they are ready to come back and pursue it.        ~Adrea~
