The nature table is an important aspect in the Waldorf classroom. You (well the child(ren) really) can put whatever natural things you choose on the table, which is often seasonally or traditional themed (ie. 'autumn' or 'hanukah' or 'easter').
North and I have been busy collecting leaves, berries, flowers, rocks, gumnuts, pinecones, feathers and other exciting 'outdoor toys'. He places them in his treasure bag and we bring them home and lay them out on the table. Every few days I have to pick dried leaves off of the floor, and I find rocks in every corner of our home, but it's all worth it- he adores the table concept and spends a lot of time places things in and out of the box in a very intentional way (I have no idea what his intentions are, but he gets a very serious look on his face when rearranging things).
I also have a few autumn books on the table. North's absolute favourite is "The Bold Boy" by Malachy Doyle. Feel free to browse through my autumn children's reading list for some inspiration.
What do you and your families do to share the joys of autumn and to mark the change of season? I'd love to hear!
