Winter Nature Table


Winter Nature Table
Originally uploaded by Pictures by Ann
Olivia helped set up the winter nature table. It's a combination of handmade items that I've made, others have made (e.g., Soft Earth Art in New Zealand made the pretty display in the back with the two wool figures), items I've purchased at the local Waldorf school, and natural items that the girls and I have found on nature walks.

I like that the elements are natural - the dolls are made from felt, cotton fabric, and sheep wool (depending on which one you're looking at).

Olivia (and sometimes Sophia) will play with the different components on the table, creating stories that change each time they visit the table.

I love this idea. My 7 year old plays with way with her Littlest Pet Shop animals. I love to watch her.

It is fascinating to watch children play, and create different scenarios with their toys.

I'm continually amazed that the stories that my daughters create never seem to repeat themselves.

Thank you! It was so much fun setting it up this year with my daughter. Enjoyed having some new items to add to the winter nature table.
