Spring Nature Table - An Invitation to Explore

I've noticed a few toddlers stepping on ants in the yard.  Or covering them with dirt.  I've talked to them about ants and tried to nurture an interest.  One of the ideas I had in the classroom was to set up a spring Nature Table.

We'll see what happens.

Some other ideas I have are:

*to make a spiders web with wool outside in a corner
*catch some ants in a container and observe them for a week
*books in the book shelf
*observing where ants go outside, cultivating an interest by being interested
*insects at the play-do table
