Our nature tree

Ok, Steiner/Waldorf mums... I am struggling with a nature table. I am flat out trying to keep nature OUT of the house. 100 acres of paddocks, creeks, dams, and springs out there.... A wood fire most of the year... You Get the picture!?




But we do have a vase that I put squiggly sticks in.




We scribbled on best quality drawing paper with green and yellow beeswax crayons. It provides a gorgeous waxy coating.




Hole punched and green wool threaded through.




A little painting. We also painted more of those cicada shells




How good does it feel to pain your skin!? Go on... Try it.




And here is our spring nature tree. Green leaves and cicadas.

Love the fist full of paint brushes best. Grand daughter loved to paint herself! She's quite the artist now too. ;-) Thanks for sharing. Enjoy the Waldorf!!!-ing.

Hehehe! What a cutie all covered in paint. The nature tree is a great idea for the little ones.
