Are You Ready for Earth Hour?

Are You Ready for Earth Hour? 

This year’s Earth Hour is almost here, but are you ready to take part in this annual event? Earth Hour 2024 will take place on Saturday, March 23rd, between 8.30 pm and 9.30 pm.

Earth Hour is the perfect time to switch off, chill out, and appreciate the beauty of the planet. 

Now, more than ever, we’re all increasingly aware of how our actions impact the natural world. Switching off the power and ditching the screen time is a perfect way to celebrate Earth Hour. But what should you do for those 60 minutes? We’ve got some great ideas below to keep everyone entertained:

Puzzles for the Whole Family

Keep the whole family entertained with some screen-free fun this Earth Hour! Puzzles are the perfect way to pass the time and keep kids, both big and small, occupied. 

Puzzles that celebrate the beauty of the natural world, like this Crocodile Creek Birds of Paradise Puzzle, are the perfect pick for the occasion. We’ve got puzzles for all ages to enjoy. Check out the full selection here.

Stay Illuminated

Turning off the lights for the duration of Earth Hour is the traditional way to mark the event. But that doesn’t mean you need to sit in the dark. Why not keep things light by turning off the lights and lighting a candle instead? This will keep things light – and smelling great! 

The Sevin London Coral Clay Candle is the perfect way to light up your room for Earth Hour. This natural candle is handmade, vegan, and has a cotton wick. Plus, it smells amazing, thanks to its flowery and citrus notes. Browse our huge range of candles and stock up ready for Earth Hour here.

Get Creative with Crafts

Crafts are another fantastic way to spend your hour. Getting creative is something everyone can enjoy, so it’s the perfect activity for the entire family. 

Why not spend this Earth Hour, creating a home for nature with this Masterpieces Windmill Birdhouse Kit? The real wood birdhouse is really fun to decorate and can be proudly hung outside in your garden to provide shelter for visiting birds. You can find craft activity sets for every interest here.

Ready, Steady Play!

Why not enjoy some quality time together and play a game or two this Earth Hour? If your little ones have insisted they’re staying up for Earth Hour, this Marvel Mayhem game is the perfect way to stop sleepy kids from becoming overtired and bored. 

Your Earth Hour will be full of fun and laughter when you’ve got some great games to play. Browse our full selection of games here.

Prepare Some Snacks

As Earth Hour falls between 8.30 pm and 9.30 pm, it’s a little late for dinner – but it’s the perfect time for snacks! Why not step outside and cook alfresco? Fire up the BBQ and use this Pizza Oven Set for BBQs to create a great-tasting pizza. Or grab some chips and dip for a super easy evening snack. Get BBQ-ready with our full range of equipment here.

Step Outside and Wrap Up Warm

With electric lights turned off, the chances of seeing a beautiful starlit sky are really high. Step outside and lay beneath the stars, listen to the birds, and appreciate the wonder of nature this Earth Hour. 

Whether you do this in your backyard or decide to head to a park or beach, you’re going to need something to lay on and keep you warm. So, be sure to bring a blanket. The Eden & West Chevron Zig Zag Cotton Throw is a great choice for this – it’s also made from 100% recycled cotton. Take a look at our full range of blankets and throws to keep you comfortable this Earth Hour here.

Treat Yourself to a Home Spa

Spend Earth Hour pampering yourself and enjoy the benefits of feeling calm and refreshed. Give your skin a treat with the Wrinkles Shminkles InfuseFast Facial Plumping Sheet Mask, and sit back and relax while it works its magic.

Even the youngest members of the family can join in with this fun spa experience. Little ones will love using the Mad Beauty Disney’s Jasmine Pure Princess Cosmetic Sheet Mask made from biodegradable materials. Shop our full range of skin and beauty essentials here and get ready for an Earth Hour spa session.
