A Nature Table

If your little ones are anything like ours then you probably have large collections of found objects, round pebbles, sticks, wild flowers,seashells and pinecones in every corner. With three children who all love to gather and bring nature inside it’s really good to have a special place to keep it all together. In our home we keep these things on the Nature Table.
After a recent trip to the beach we came home again with pockets full of sand and seashells, and our Nature Table was starting to look a little crowded, I knew it was time for a change.

Our new Nature Table:


A bowl full of seashells (which is probably going to be replaced with a much larger bowl,soon!):


Some wild flowers and the matching wildflower definition cards, a sprouting conker we found at the beach and a few other specimens we are studying at the moment..


Our nature table changes daily as the children add things,move things around or take things away, and big changes like the silk cloth for the background and the seasonal prints and nature books change with the seasons.
Do you have a nature table in your home?
Have a wonderful day!

    I love the hot cross buns you posted earlier. I remember….. when I was 16 years old I went to Whitby to visit my paypal… and we ate a lot of those yummy little hot cross buns :-)

    Thank you for the sweet note on my blog! I love your nature table–I think nature tables are the best decor in the world. Right now we are away from our home, but back home we have a silver “nest” of covered stones, a tall vase full of stones and sea glass, and a chest with some winter Waldorf dolls and a papercutting made by my friend Jan of an onion-dome cathedral.

    I am grateful for your beautiful blog and your clever tutorials!

  3. I really like those plant cards, did you buy them/make them. They are so cute and colorful. I’m really liking your blog, so creative and relaxed.
