Our Spring Display

After going through a hardcore Waldorf phase a couple of years ago, one of the things that remains is our seasonal display.  Also called a nature table in Waldorf circles, it is customary to decorate your display with colors to suit the season, items collected from outside by the children, and figures and other symbols of the season.  Here is a photo of our spring display before it gets changed over on Monday the first day of summer:

We made the wool fairy for our summer display last year, but Red insisted that she needed to come out early.  She found the bird's nest at Greenfield Village today outside the Edison house.  When we got home she filled it with some of her sidewalk chalk eggs.  The flowers are from our trip up north, as is the wee bird with nest candleholder that I bought at BeeDazzled.  Can't wait for the summer display!  And here's Red swinging today---

I love summer!
