My dad is *finally* getting into gear to start writing up some woodworking plans for Waldorfy-Montessori-ish toys and materials.<br><br>
For those of you who would like to do more woodworking for your kids, what sorts of things would you like to be able to find plans for?

How is a Nature Table different from any other small table? I always thought a Nature Table was a small table like and end table that was draped with silks, mounded with dyed wool, and a scene was made with different nature objects and such. Are there special tables that have things added to them?

A push toy. The kind that you walk behind. Like a stroller, cart or push wagon kind of dealy. I want to make something like that for my baby's birthday, but I haven't been able to find any plans. I imagine that it's something I could come up with on my own easily enough, but I'm just so busy right now I would really love to just be able to follow someone else's instructions.<br><br>
Kitchen set and play stand plans. Those tumblers that you roll with all of the balls inside of them. A nice open ended curvy doll-house or barn plan would be nice. A simple rocking horse would be great.

Seconding the request for a sand and water table!<br><br>
Also, playstands, kitchen sets, small child-size table and chairs... I'm sure I can think of other things too, give me a bit.

The nicer ones have a lip (1-3") to keep everything contained. Since we bring things in from outdoors, it often winds up on the floor...quite messy, w/ all the dirt and leaves and all.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
