Earth Hour began four years ago and has since become the world’s largest climate change initiative with over 1 billion people participating last year alone.
To mark the occasion, we have five specially reissued copies of the very first edition of Franklin in the Dark from WWF to give away. To win, tell us in the comments below: what’s the best in-the-dark game or activity for families? Five of the best will be selected to win.
There is no shortage of games, activities and toys that are more fun for your kids when the lights go out! Try this glow-in-the-dark Perler Fuse Bead Bucket Activity Kit and make hundreds of fun bracelets, necklaces or decorate a white t-shirt that will shine bright in the dark. Or make your mark with this Glow in the Dark Chalk from Crayola. If your little one has some lights-out fears, quell them with What Was I Scared Of? Glow in the dark ink ads a twist to this classic Dr. Suess-style story where the narrator is being terrorized by an empty, floating pair of pants (and the pants are equally as frightened of the narraror!). If all else fails, shadow puppets are always a good fall back and you can use Melissa and Doug Sunny Patch Blaze Firefly Flashlight to light up the show!
It’s never too early to introduce your child to fun ways to conserve energy. So turn off the lights and turn on the love for our world this Earth Hour!
CAUTION: If you plan on using candles this Earth Hour, make sure you are practicing good fire hazard safety to keep you and your family safe from danger.
