The Yule Sabbat falls on or around December 21st every year. Also known as Winter Solstice, Yule signifies the rebirth of the Sun God. This is a time of hope, renewal and planning for the future. The following are activities that Pagan children can enjoy during Yule.
Make a book of Yule carols that can be sung for family and friends. All that is needed for this activity is a blank journal and a pen or pencil. Yule carols can be found by doing a search on an online search engine. Write the lyrics to the songs in the journal. You will find that many of the traditional Christmas carols are suitable for the Yule Sabbat.

Another great Yule activity is crafting. Yule crafts can be used as decorations for the tree, home and yard. Crafts can also be given as gifts to loved ones. Make handmade garlands by stringing cranberries and popcorn. Garlands can also be made by stringing pine cones and other items from nature as well. Rune ornaments are a fun and easy Yule craft.
