Tarot for Kids (Cards)
A tarot deck featuring 78 beautifully illustrated cards and a 96-page guidebook that teaches kids about tarot and how to perform readings. Ages 8 and up.
Tarot is a great resource for advice, decision-making, understanding how to help your friends and family, making plans, avoiding drama, creative thinking, learning to trust your intuition, and so much more. Plus, it’s a lot of fun! Kids will love learning to read tarot, on their own or with their friends.
The deck features 78 beautiful cards illustrated by Kailey Whitman, based on the traditional Rider-Waite-Smith tarot deck. A few have been modified for this age group—for example, the “death” card is “change,” and the “lovers” card is “friends.”
The guidebook has everything kids need to begin, including a brief history of tarot, the meanings of the cards, and how to perform readings. It also includes resources to help kids set goals, build friendships, adjust an attitude, and listen to their own inner wisdom.
As author Theresa Reed, aka The Tarot Lady, reminds us: “The cards tell a story, but you write the ending.”
