Altar Idea for parents of small children

Filed under: General Information,Womens Mysteries — ravenbird @ 6:21 pm

My friend had a cool idea when her 4 kids were small and grabby — and they were way pressed for space.

She took a shoe box–actually I think hers was a boot box, but same thing, She decorated (read consecrated) the box inside and out, box and lid, and she kept her altar things inside the box. The box stayed out of small children’s hands, it went with her to open rituals or open fields or wherever she needed it to go–it stayed up on a shelf where it could be seen but not messed with until she took it down. And the box itself was an altar when she displayed the items on top of the box during prayer/ritual/ so on.

I always thought that was a great idea. Her kids made altar boxes of their own as well, so it was a family process. As her kids got older, her kids began to take their altar boxes off to college with them and that’s what they used (the ones who still used altars).
