At the end of the book Last Child In the Woods by Richard Louv he gives tips on exploring nature with your children, this was one of them:

Keep a “wonder bowl.” Kids fill their pockets with acorns, rocks and leaves. Empty those pockets into a bowl, so kids can linger over their treasures.

This our wonder bowl, for dinnertime I let Abby decorate the table for everyone to see the fun things she has found out in nature. It has become a special part of the house.

Over at Nature for Kids they show some great examples of nature boxes (pictured below) go over there to get more details.

What a fantastic and simple idea.
