There is so much beauty and magic in childhood. Why not capture little bits of your day with your child and place them on a small table with perhaps a candle or vase of flowers picked on your walk.
Blue, green and turquoise playsilks can be laid on the table as water. Small boats, pretty stones, sea shells and beach glass can be used to set the scene. A new toy would be lovely addition as a morning birthday surprise or just an every day delight! We often added new items to our table when the children were asleep, they would wake up eager to notice what was new.
In my opinion a nature table is for playing with, adding to with lovely objects found in nature, but also treated with respect and care.
Some lovely wooden animals having some green grass on our table.

Here is a summer nature table our friend Monica made. She is a local/Sonoma County, CA felt artist.
