Last year we decided to set up a nature table for Kiddo. Autumn seemed like the perfect time to start. We collected a variety of leaves, brought them home and painted them, making imprints with the different shapes and colours. I cut out some 'leaf-shaped' felt shapes and we scattered them over our table in amongst pine cones, conkers and berries.

Tomorrow we are heading out to the woods to collect items for the table, and this year we are going to identify the different leaves and twigs. We tried bark rubbing last year, which he wasn't really into, but going to give it a go again. I loved making bark rubbing drawing and pictures when I was small.
I will post more pictures as we update our table during the season.
