The ideas in this article are a very small sampling of all the possibilities for play magick, which are endless! Let your own childhood play-time favorites inspire you to devise even more types of magickal fun. Might you be able to skip over obstacles by skipping an enchanted jump rope? Could a game of magickal freeze tag be used to stop fear, doubt, or other baneful energies? Perhaps those dolls or action figures could come in handy for a bit of imitative magick, allowing you to mimic and play act the circumstances you desire. Challenge yourself to come up with some new ideas for play magick. How might you use a bouncy ball as a tool for magick? What other ideas can you think of? Play and magick are intrinsically linked, and the potential, possibility, and power of play magic are truly as limitless as the value of fun itself!

I hope you have some fun with these ideas. I would love to hear from anyone willing to share how you took or are thinking of taking a childhood game, toy, board game, etc as Melanie says the list has endless possibilities and using it for magick. Remember our inner child can get restless and this would be a good way to soothe it. I think Melanie’s ideas are also a great way to teach children of all ages a little magick and think of the great time the family can have doing an activity together.
I am going to dig out my old board game called “LIFE” and play it with the intention that I will reach my goal of having my first book self-published by Spring Equinox 2016! Now have some fun and play but remember your intentions, spells, etc will still have results so make sure you think something through before trying it. Maybe even write down the steps you need to take, what you will need in way of supplies and/or magickal tools and definitely write out any spell you will be using no point in saying a wrong word and have the spell back-fire on you. You can do the preparation but still have fun and do not forget the Wicce Rede “Harm none, do as ye will“
