A Spring Nature table

By the end of Winter I was so very ready for Spring. I was itching to get outside, itching to change up our reading basket, itching to transition our nature table from Winter to Spring.

So day by day in that last week, I changed the items. First the Winter fairy door disappeared, and a rainbow door came to take its place. King Winter returned home while a rabbit hopped into the scene. Lastly, Jack Frost scampered away and a flower peg doll emerged. I even changed the play silks hanging below, shifting from blues and greens to add a little yellow and pink.

We have placed our new nature shelf in our dining room, a central part of our home. Often walked past, but also a place for lingering. The shelf is at child height. So little hands can explore and add pieces of Spring.

In our Springtime garden, rosy morning glow,
Sunshine falling, calling, falling,
seeds are waking so.


This is our alter to Mother Nature. An inside connection to the outside. With little items that represent the season, as well as items from nature itself.

As we flow through the season, so to will the nature table shift and change.

Warmly, Kelly
