Once Upon a Table
Storytelling is an amazing art form to bring into your home. As we experience the seasonal shift from the spring and summer months full of outside adventures to the fall and winter months of inside activities, a story table is a wonderful way to craft a focused area for storytelling.
I introduced a nature table into our family’s home when my sons were very little and it was a natural transition to create a story table as well. Unlike our nature table that has a primary focus on the changing season, our story table is just for storytelling. The stories may be inspired from existing stories from books, but more often an ever-evolving mixture of our own tales. It is a place in our home where we create stories and craft story props to accompany them.
A story table can easily be added into the rhythm of your home by allowing a time to connect, a time to create and let the magic of story crafting grow.
By incorporating stories with crafting, you are setting up a wonderful way for your child to both understand their place in the world and at the same time embrace the magic and creativity of their imagination. They are able to craft the stories with their ideas, words, and hands at once.
Wooden iron board (easily folds up and can be packed away)
Thrifted table or a small dresser
There is no limitation to the size of your table. I suggest something that is stable and at a child’s level to interact with at their desire. A couple of floor pillows nearby are also a nice addition for comfortable listening and story time.
Suggested materials for storycrafting
Wooden figures and peg dolls
Found wood pieces to be turned into figures
Good supply of glue, wood pencils, felt, yarn, fabric scraps
Play silks in a variety of colors
Fun box to store different props
I suggest investing in a nice journal that can stay with the Story Table for you or your children to write down stories you create, ideas for stories, and pictures inspired by stories. You can find some beautiful journals in art supply stores that are even refillable so that you can keep making more and more stories. The journal is a beautiful part of the story table which helps to develop your bond with your child and preserve family memories.
Enjoy crafting good stories and hand crafts with your children and have a wonderful autumn season.
Here are a few projects which you can use to begin to develop your story table:
