I had a seashell collection as a child. A neighbor gave me a large glass jar full of seashells that his daughter had outgrown, and that jumpstarted my collection. Nature's bounty is a logical first collection for little ones. Be it beautiful seashells and bird's nests, or just plain sticks and rocks, encourage little ones to forage and add to their collection by creating a beautiful display. Check out the incredible nature table Jennifer of The Write Start created in her home.
We love the extraordinary collection of items she's amassed. The mini chalkboard signs make changing the display easy. The cubby-filled baskets that store what's not out keeps the collection organized. For more photos and details of what Jennifer keeps in her baskets, check out her blog The Write Start.
