This week on Simple Kids we’re talking about nature tables and collections. As we enjoy this Autumn season, the nature table at our house is reflecting the changes taking place outdoors.
The kids and I have been adding in some of our favorite decorations as well as some finds from our walks outside. Currently in our nature display we have: felt mushrooms, rocks and gemstones (including an Indiana pudding stone), seed pods, acorns, walnuts, a needle felted pumpkin, and leaves.
I love having leaves as a part of our Autumn display, but I will admit it can get a little messy as they dry out and become brittle and crumbly. This year, however, I think I have come across a solution: preserving the leaves in beeswax.
