Our Summer Nature Table from Blue Bells and Cockle ShellsWith summer starting last weekend, we set up our summer nature table. As with our previous nature tables, I thought I’d take the time to highlight a few of the things that we have found over the last several years for our nature table.

Sola’s favorite part of our summer nature table is our small vase, which she is constantly filling with fresh flowers that she picks. We purchased our vase from Montessori Services and they have several other small vases for children.

I have a jar of sea glass, which I purchased from Jazomir Sea Glass, for the summer table to help remind us of the beach (we also have sea shells, but Sola will not allow me to put them on the nature table right now for some strange reason).

These bees are from Two Raccoon Hollow and the bush is part of the Summer Forest Playset from The Enchanted Cupboard.

We made the ladybugs ourselves.

The other animals are Ostheimer, which I usually purchase from The Wooden Wagon and the sun stacker is from Imagination Kids.

For each season,  I purchased a gnome house from Green Mountain Wee Woolies.

I also purchased stones for each season from various Etsy sellers, in particular, Gem Palace and Raw Simple.
