Nature Tables- beautiful and inspiring spaces for home preschoolers

If you’ve been following the blog lately, you’ve seen I have a home preschool theme going on. Within that theme, I’m also talking about homeschooling in small spaces  (because very few of us actually have entire rooms we can dedicate to homeschooling!) These Nature Tables are fantastic to use as a rotating display and can be done in the smallest of spaces! Nature tables have stolen my heart because they are simple, beautiful, inviting, and open ended.

Nature Tables (in order from left to right in the above picture)
1. Natural Beach Living set up a beautiful botany table to explore and talk bout the parts of  plant.
2. I love how Hurray IC Included two corkbords to pin up nature finds!
3. The Imagination Tree has so many natural materials to explore at her nature table! It also includes a magnifying glass and branch pencils to record observations!
4. Tree Life Coaching created a beautiful toddler-friendly space of all their “found” treasures! So many things I love here, from using the wooden mancala board to adding a small vase for tots to make their own nature arrangements! <3
5. Imagination Tree updates her nature tables based on seasons. This Spring table look very inviting!
6. Still Parenting made a gorgeous nature nook (no table necessary!) using railing from n old crib! Brilliant!
7. Sew Liberated has cats that would make a typical nature table a problem. Her solution was to create a nature nook using a cabinet! Another fantastic idea to store all those treasures!
8. Wooden sorting trays make a beautiful addition to nature tables. An Everyday Story uses a tie drawer at her table. Also check out how she makes nature inspired discovery baskets for younger munchkins!
Materials
While most of the materials for nature tables will come directly from nature, there a few items that can add to the the environment that you might want to consider purchasing:
