  1. So hard to choose a favourite month as there is potential in all of them!! July is one of my favourites though, as the children finish school and we get to begin our summer adventures together!

  2. Thank you for sharing your inspiring, time saving, beautiful creative ideas that will make a difference in the lives of children our team of early education professionals work with each day. A happy and healthy 2017

  3. April, because it shows the first signs of spring here in Idaho. It bring a new beginning and fresh start to everything. A renewed sense of hope for many.

  4. July is my favorite month of the year because it is the month when my first and currently only granddaughter was born. I am looking forward to making much natural art with her.

  5. I have several favorites…January because I love taking walks in the snow looking for animals tracks and listening to the great horned owls as they reconnect with their friends and snuggling up with hot chocolate as I plan out the next year and that’s when the . April because that is when the frogs come out and life starts warming up and everything is fresh and new. July because that is family time, when we take long trips and hike for miles and miles discovering new places as a family. October because the leaves are changing and giving us new colors and creative possibilities, and it’s apple pressing time. Sorry I couldn’t pick just one month! 🙂

  6. June. Here in England it as a wonderful month for taking the children out to explore the woods, the bugs are buzzing, the birds are singing, the wild flowers are blooming, lizards are basking, birds of prey soar all day and we know where to find the slow worms! It’s our special place and we don’t tell anyone else where they are! It makes my heart so happy to see my children enjoying the outdoors as I do! I love June!

  7. Each month is wonderful for it’s own reasons… The giving season starting in October for us is really special… July is our epic adventure month with the kids… any month where my time is exclusively their time… is my favourite time♥ I can’t wait to receive the pdf… very exciting♥

  8. Every season brings a unique natural beauty to appreciate. I think my absolute favorite time is October. There are so many materials to gather: dried leaves, acorns, buckeyes, and sticks to make magic and a world of wonder with the children!

  9. Early March brings tiny new leaves on the trees that are a pale yellow green. This color of new growth delights me to no end. During a winter of serious illness that required I rest and sleep much of the time, I had a healing vision that continues to deeply inspire and nourish my soul. A whoosh of that color washed over me, enveloped me and soaked into every cell. I felt hope rising and a joyous desire to move my body. My health markedly improved. It was not until March that the new leaves emerged and I realized, “That’s the color that healed me!!” For this reason, March is my favorite month.

  10. My favourite months are January, June and August…my three beautiful children’s birthdays. No matter what the weather, or where they are are, they make my life shine.

  11. November is my favorite as we celebrate Thanksgiving, the time we take to give thanks to our Creator for everything that is given/loaned to us and for Mother Earth to host us. It is a time for family, friends, compassion and sharing. It makes me happy!

    Thank you so much for this lovely discussion and your generosity in sharing your gifts xoxoxox

  13. Thanks for all you do, Marghanita. Your picture is on my inspiration wall. I would say July is a favorite month as that means both travel adventures with my family as well as joyous times at our Nature Nuts’ summer camps; the gardens are blooming and the forest is full of life.

  14. My favorite month is September because we can harvest all fruit in the garden. With the childeren at School we make delicious marmelade en fruit juices!

  15. Never thought about the favorite month…. Could be warm March or easy going July. Colorful clothing and joie de vivre full mode on, nature is starting to bloom in as an, colors possible and it’s super easy to think Pink 🙂

  16. My favorite months are April …Love the awakening of nature …
    The beginning of color , plants , trees , birds and more .
    August is sunny and summer is peaking , with warm sunny days ,flip flops , beach trips , flowers, berries , gardens . so much to see and discover everywhere outside .
    November , the end of fall and the beginning of winter fun And the oh so beautiful colors together with chilly days and snow if your lucky ..
    And of course the magic of a December

  17. December in Australia is summer and my young children and I regularly travel to the beach to swim, play in the sand, collect sticks, throw rocks, chase crabs and many other adventures on these sunny days.
