July Nature Table/Childhood Magic Inspiration

For those of you who haven't yet checked out Childhood Magic you are truly missing out on something magical. For those of you who are avid followers like me I'm sure you can relate to wanting to try out everything Ariella does with her children.
Our nature table this month is based on white things from the beach. Every time we go down we look for a new white shell, stone, beach glass or sand dollar.
This little clay sandcastle was the perfect addition. So easy and so much fun to do. L made little people with blankets and pillows which unfortunately were too fragile to keep but she had a great time making them.

When I saw Ariella's dodecahedron lantern I knew I wanted to try it out right away. After a bit of help from my husband this is our first attempt.
I'm going to make the next one smaller and use white watercolor paper which I may paint on at the end.   Find a wonderful tutorial for these lanterns here.
