Recommended for kids roughly ages 6 through adult. 

Elsie learned these from her Granny Witch a long time ago.  Some of them seem to be a variation of traditional runes while others...who knows?  But they seem to be easier for young people to learn and they are a surprisingly accurate method of divination.

Paint the symbols on smooth pebbles.  Then, using a stick or your athame, draw three concentric rings in the ground
(You can also paint the rings on a cloth that you then lay out to cast the runes onto.  The cloth can then be gathered and tied into a sack to hold the stones when not in use.)

Hold the stones in both hands over the circles, high enough so that when they fall, they scatter.

Stones coming to rest in the outer circle represent the far, still developing future or people or events slightly influencing the situation.  The middle ring represents a more immediate influence or thing about to happen, while the center ring is Right Now and the situation at hand.
