We observed an Earth hour.
Ours was at 6.30 rather than 8.30.
Having it at this time meant the kids could participate and for us it was no lights, no computer, no Wii or TV.
We ate dinner by candle light with the light of dusk still enabling us to see quite adequately.
We played a game by candlelight afterwards too
However Story time was a bit different as there was also the fire safety element to consider.
So out came the headlamp and the torch.
Did you observe Earth hour and if so were there Children involved?
I'd love to hear about it. :)
Goah Tammy, i never once thought about doing it at a different time... the grown ups did earth hour in our house at the right time but next year we will certainly be taking a leaf out of your book and doing it at a time where the whole family can participate :DReplyDelete
Hi Tammy, we also observed Earth Hour. We just sat around and talk (well, actually we argued about things). We did it for two hours 8:30 to 10:30 as we were too busy arguing about life with our teenage soon. It was so much fun that we have decided to do it once a month.ReplyDelete
Hi Tammy, unfortunately we didn't observe Earth Hour. I had seen it advertised earlier in the week and then plain forgot about it. I think I might make up for it this weekend. We had the in laws up from Melbourne for the weekend so we were quite involved in talking to them and the kids. Mother-in-law has cancer and may be the last time she gets to fly up to see us.ReplyDelete
in true dopey P style we observed earth hour - a week early!!! doh!!! and it only lasted 40 minutes and I am pretty sure i was the only one enjoying it still at the end.....ReplyDelete
Can you believe i forgot all about it, it wasn't advertised much over here or enough to jog my memory. I bet the kids loved it.ReplyDelete
We celebrated earth hour but at 8:30pm, I wish I had of thought of bringing it forward so the girls could have joined in I'll remember for next time, thank you for the idea.xoReplyDelete
