10 Things to Do in the Dark- Earth Hour 2016

With Earth Hour 2016 in only a matter of days, three to be exact, we want to prepare you for the one hour of having all of your lights off.

So to make sure we don’t leave you in the dark (pun intended), we have compiled a list of 10 things to do in the dark this Earth Hour.

  • Get together with friends and family and have a bonfire under the stars. However, if the British weather doesn’t work in your favour, why not light a few candles and roast some marshmallows indoors?
  • Hijack the weekly pub quiz- because everyone knows a pub quiz with your friends are underrated!
  • Go for a moonlit walk along the beach.
  • Go back to basics with some old fashioned board-games like scrabble, Pictionary or Cluedo.
  • Get the family together and bring out all of the old photo albums to relive memories from your first steps, your first family holiday or your first prom!
  • Light a few candles and practice those yoga poses- guaranteed to make you feel relaxed.
  • Switch off for the hour and have a power nap, because who doesn’t love a nap before you hit the town on a Saturday night.
  • Curl up under a blanket and read a good book or listen to your favourite album.
  • As we head into spring, it’s time for the dreaded spring clean. Why not set this hour aside to get things started?
  • Time to raid your wardrobe? Get rid of what doesn’t fit anymore, including those big winter coats, and donate them to your local charity shop. After all, cleaning out your wardrobe only leaves room to buy more…
