15 Mabon Activities

Guided meditation

Guided meditations are a great way to start meditating as they give you something to focus on rather than struggling in silence. There are so many different themed meditations available on platforms such as YouTube. For Mabon, I really liked the meditation from Correspondence Meditations. It is really descriptive so great for helping you to visualise. 

Mabon Tarot spread

Tarot spreads are another activity that is available in lots of different themes. A simple search on Pinterest can bring up many options. I really enjoyed reading the Mabon Blessing Tarot spread from angelorum.

Bake with apples

Apples are an important element to Mabon so what better way to celebrate than to cook or bake with apples! Things like baked apples, apple pie, apple crumble, apple cake, apple sausages, apple sauce. Whatever recipes you like that uses apples as one of the main ingredients. 

Make soups using root vegetables

Root vegetables correspond with Mabon so why not make some lovely warming homemade soup to bring on all of the autumn feels?

Decorate your Mabon altar

Decorating my altar for the different sabbaths is one of my favourite things to do. I just love arranging and choosing the items that I will use. You can use anything you like but here are some ideas to get you started. 

  • Candles or ribbons in Mabon colours (browns, oranges, reds, greens, and yellows).
  • Crystals that correspond to Mabon.
  • Autumn fallen leaves and pinecones. 
  • Apples, pumpkins, seasonal vegetables. 
  • Baskets
  • Besoms
  • Incences that correspond to Mabon. 

Go apple picking

With apples being so important to Mabon, going apple picking can be a great family activity. 

Make apple or mini pumpkin candles

Scooping out the insides of apples or small pumpkins can be great to add candles to for fantastic Mabon decor. 

Make a scarecrow

Scarecrows correspond with Mabon and can be great projects to make with family or friends. The scarecrow can guard your home as well as your garden. 

Visit a corn maze

Corn mazes are a great autumnal activity and as corn corresponds to Mabon it can make a great Mabon activity!

Leaf rubbings

With so many beautiful Autumn leaves falling, it can be a lot of fun to collect some different shaped leaves for home art projects. Even something simple like making leaf rubbings can be a lot of fun. 

adult, litter picking, cleaning up, saving the planet

Pick up rubbish in your local area

Tidying up your local community and therefore the planet is always a great thing to do. However, at Mabon, it shows that you are thankful for the world that we live in and that you are happy to do your bit to look after it. 

Donate to a food bank

Another great thing to do at this time of year is to donate some food to a local food bank. As the colder months set in, people in need will welcome your kindness. 

Make a gratitude list

Mabon is known as the witches thanksgiving so making a gratitude list is a lovely simple Mabon activity.

Make pinecone fire starters

Using pinecones that correspond with Mabon to make fire starters can be a great way to celebrate the sabbath. You can then use the fire starter in your Mabon bonfire or firepit. 

Mabon themed spell work

Doing some spell work that fits with the theme of Mabon is of course a great way for any witch to celebrate the sabbath. Next week there will be a new post coming to the blog with ideas of what spells you could do. 

So there you have 15 Mabon activities. I hope that this post has inspired you to plan your own Mabon celebrations this year. For more Mabon-themed posts, check out my dedicated Mabon page here.
