Hi all --

 

Fairly new to Waldorf, we did an awesome Autumn nature table this year and I want to do something for Winter as well.

 

Any ideas for a Winter nature table?  For some reason, I am stumped!

 

Thanks!

Our winter nature table usually has a King Winter figure (this year I'd like to make Jack Frost and Mrs. Thaw too!), some woodland animals such as deer, bear, squirrels and foxes, cedar branches from the woods, and pretty rocks and sticks we find.  Hope that helps!


A happy woman

We usually have a robin on ours.  And snowflakes made out of paper, then stuck to the window (besides things already mentioned).

A crystal always seems to find its way onto ours. I'm having to think about a summer table - in Australia - but it's been pouring rain for a week...

Pinetree candle, some homemade tomtens, pinecones, pine needles or small branch, crystals, felted snowmen, holly leaves...

Pinecones, a small basket of chesnuts, some angels, a candle, a gnome family (http://weefolkart.com/?q=node/187 ) and some woodland animals.
