Do you have a nature table or nature area in your home? For this week’s Discover & Explore fall themed linky party, I’m sharing how we display nature treasures in our home. (Be sure to link up your fall themed posts at the end of this post!)
Our nature area is such a well loved little corner of our home. It’s where we display all the little nature treasures the kids bring in from outside, allowing the kids to reflect on the current season.
We use a 3-tiered table as our nature area, but I’ve seen other people use regular tables, shelves, or even just a little corner of a room. I like to make sure the table is located where the kids can easily access it since Lucy and Theo love playing with all the nature treasures they’ve found. You will often find them reorganizing our nature table or adding new things to it themselves.
I also love that it’s located right near our seasonal books. In addition to the kids experiencing the hands-on benefits of the nature table itself, the various genres of seasonal books nearby encourage them to make connections with the season and the world around them.
Our nature table is slowly transitioning to fall. The wooden squirrel usually makes his appearance about this time of year, and we often start finding fall leaves and pinecones nearby. Lucy and Theo love adding those little nature treasures to the table! I love watching how our nature area transitions with the season.
How do you display your child’s nature treasures?
