Parents: Mabon or the fall equinox is a sacred time for most pagans and earth-based religions. The official marker of the wheel of the year turning to fall. This is the p[erfect time to start pulling out the cool weather wardrobes and going for walks to point out the changes happening each day as the cool weather takes hold. The best thing you can do for your child today is to get your child outside. Go play in the back yard, take a walk around the block, or visit your local park. It doesn’t have to be a big outing like a camping or hiking trip though both are amazing ways to spend Maybon. Embrace nature and the changes the fall is beginning to bring us.

This is a great project for outdoors where you an leave the alter for the wild animals when you are done. Place apples, pumpkins, and even home-baked goods on your alter.
