Little Witch’s Guide to Backyard Magic

By Heather Knox

Discover the magic to be found in your very own backyard with the help of this fun and creative green witchcraft guidebook for kids!


The Little Witch’s Guide to Backyard Magic is a joyful guide that focuses on the basic principles of positive, nature-based “green” witchcraft, which celebrates and fosters a deep respect for the natural world. Kids will discover the true wonder that the earth has to offer through the fun activities, simple spells, and cute crafts in this book, including:

  • Easy divination, like tea leaf reading
  • Crystal magic
  • Weather magic
  • Celebrating the seasons
  • Ideas for magical gardening and working with plants
  • Inviting and working respectfully with the friendlier fae
  • Exploring the five elements
  • Learning about the influence of the sun, moon, and stars
  • And so much more!

Through play and the exploration of the natural world, kids will experience the interconnectedness of all things and will learn that as much as magic can be found in the world around us, so too does it come from within us. This handbook not only fosters a love of nature but will also nurture kids’ own creativity, independence, and intuition.
