« show and tell: nature collections »

winter finds, by dimsum, bagels, and crawfish

We’re sharing our nature collections over on the Heywood’s Meadow flickr group — so much beautiful inspiration! If you have a nature collection or nature display, we hope you’ll come share it, too!

I also love this beach collection by graygoosie!

These beautiful displays are really a provocation for children (and adults!) to examine them more closely and perhaps draw them, leisurely identify them in field books, etc., when they’re back at home. It’s something every amateur naturalist needs!

Found your site the other week, and I love it! Love these ideas. I have a spare jar and I think I'm going to use it for a nature collection, as you suggest. Thanks for the ideas!
