8 Fun Things To Do During Earth Hour With Your Kids

March 26, 2020
Kids Activities

This Saturday at 8:30PM, the whole world comes together once again as we unify in our fight against Climate Change and show that we care about the future of our planet by turning off all lights at home for a whole hour.

But, just because you’re sitting in the dark for an hour, doesn’t mean you can’t have a bit of fun.

Tell Campfire Stories
Light some candles and tell stories like you’re around a campfire. If you’ve got older kids, throw in a spooky one.

Play A Game
Have a candle-lit boardgame night. Keep to a simple one that everyone knows so you don’t have to keep reading instructions in the dark.

Get Thinking
Play a trivia game (suitable trivia games for all ages can be found here)

Have An Unplugged Home Concert
If someone in your family is musical, whip out the guitar or sit by the piano and have a sing-a-long

Dance Like No One’s Watching
Create an hour-long playlist with your family’s favourite songs and dance till you drop

Snuggle Up For (Audio) Story Time
There are free stories for fans of Roald Dahl and The World of David Walliams – plus a ton of audio books on Audible for young and old. You can even catch children’s stories told by celebrities or astronauts aboard the International Space Station.

Put On A Show
Make a super simple DIY lightbox theatre and create extraordinary stories with your children’s toys

Clear Your Head
Practice some mindfulness for an hour and meditate together (you can find plenty of kid-friendly meditation videos on YouTube or even download Stop, Breathe & Think Kids)
