Today I wanted to show you some nature tables designed for the Montessori (home and school) environment. The change in seasons is always a good time to refresh the nature table. While our nature table isn't always season specific, I'm always looking for new ideas!
Above Making an Autumn Nature Table at Grow Grow Grow! For the home environment, I love the idea of using the season themed colour tablets. A poem on the chalk board is a lovely idea!
A nature table at Helensville Montessori. Insects in resin are always a nice touch. I think there is also an interesting cross section of a pine cone!
This is one of my favourite nature tables with an ocean theme.
A simple nature table at The Kavanaugh Report. This is really simple but beautiful and can be meaningful for a toddler.
This is a nature table from the French kindergarten class at Lycée International Montessori - Athena School. If you follow the link they also have a few tips for creating a Montessori nature table including changing it regularly and to label items for early readers.
Feeling inspired? I've lots of ideas to get started on a spring nature table!
