I believe that this a worthwhile argument because there are some tools that can be dangerous for young children. The prime examples being the athame and the bolline. I don't know about you but I don't want my young children running around with knives. Even if I decide that they are old enough to participate in more mature rituals.
But things like wands and cauldrons are relatively harmless as long as they don't run with them. And in fact a wand hunting expedition is a great activity to participate in with your children. If you make the decision to include your children in your family tradition and in small family rituals, then you will want to give considerable thought to gathering items for the children's own altar and ritual tool box.
These tools could include, but not be limited to;
- Athame (Depending on age)
- Bolline (As above, depending on age)
- Gemstones (Both precious and semi-precious; A great example are quartz points)
- Pentacle Altar Tile
