Our season table of spring (or mantle)

We Play



today we went for a walk to collect some twisted(tortured) willow branches to make as a back drop for our season table.   We talked about spring and what happens to animals, gardens, weather etc

When we got home we made fleece blossoms and a felt butterfly plus some people to decorate our table.  Our tree also has a swing for the fairy to swing on in the garden.   We had great fun creating and learning about spring.


 Some seed pods we collected yesterday

Lovely ideas! I really need to start doing activities with the kids to celebrate each season as it comes.

What a beautiful table! I have wanted to do one for such a long time, but have nowhere to put it. :(

I love the character that the branch gives to the space, and I bet the fairy is loving having somewhere to place her swing :)

What a lovely Spring table! Thanks for sharing! Enjoy your Spring...we are just heading into fall here, although since we live in South Florida, you can't really tell...just dropped from the 90s into the 80s and even the 70s a few times.
Have a nice weekend,
Colleen
