Nature Table Fun

As you walk into our public library there is this case. It is always filled with something.

Sometimes organizations have things they want to put in there, sometimes it is little girls collections of Littlest Pet Shop dolls. Every month it is something different. I asked about signing up to put stuff in there, thinking it would be a good lesson for the kids, and they told me that I would be signing up for 2011. Seriously. So I did. I signed my kids up for two years down the road for their chance at this case.

This week, I walked in and it was empty. It was odd, considering the conversation I had had earlier with the people at the library... but I figured, what the heck, I would ask again.

Apparently the person that was supposed to fill the case this month canceled and no one had gotten around to doing it yet. So I asked at just the right time. She said the person that was supposed to do it was relieved. So this morning, the kids and I did some crafts and had a great time decorating the glass case at the library with all of our Waldorf nature table stuff. Each quarter of the case has a season.

Me being me, I couldn't just have the nature table stuff in there... it had to have books. After all, it is at a LIBRARY! lol... so I added in our seasonal favorites and a couple on a nature table too. I think it turned out pretty well.

My favorite is Winter:

What a lovely idea, I will have to check out our library and see if their case is 'for rent'. Yours is wonderful!

It was fate, I tell you! How wonderful that you asked about it at just the right moment, and I absolutely love how the case turned out. It is stunning!
