Nature tables are a great way to display all your kid’s fun nature hunt finds.

We like to change ours out with each season so we can display what we have been studying and learning about. Fall is a great time to get out and explore nature. Here in Florida, the weather is much, much cooler. In other locations the plant life has changed into magnificent colors. Pinecones and acorns fall out of the tree tops and there are so many wonderful things to explore and collect!

Nature tables are a great way to accent your decor with the seasons. They also provide a hands-on sensory experience for your children and an open invitation for them to play with nature. There are so many nature items that can be used to replace toys as well!

Here are some gorgeous ideas to create your own Fall Nature Table:
This Fall nature play area from Rhythms of Play uses acorns to make little dolls with!
Use these fall nature table ideas to create a nature table in your home. They are used in Waldorf and Montessori education as a way for kids to study nature and the season of autumn. Having one in the home is a wonderful way to invite children to engage in play based learning. Nature tables are wonderful for sensory and imaginative play and are a great addition to any playroom or homeschool room.

Autumn Nature Table from Appleshoe Blog – I love the deer model toys and the felt pumpkins. This is such a lovely little area.

Fall Nature Table from Buggy and Buddy – I love the tiered stand to hold everything at different levels!

Autumn Nature Shelf from MamaPapaBubba – I really love the way she used the old crates to make a display area. You can do that with those craft crates from the craft stores.

DIY Acorn Peg Dolls from Rhythms of Play
DIY acorn peg dolls are a fun craft idea for both adults and kids preschool age and up. They are made using wooden peg dolls, watercolor paint, and an acorn cap found in nature. The tutorial is easy to follow. They look wonderful displayed on mantles, window sills, fairy gardens and nature tables. They are also the perfect handmade dolls for pretend or imaginative play.

Here are some great natural items that you can use year round on a nature table. So cute to use as stands for animals and people that your kid create, or to display a favorite found item.
