Earth hour is Saturday March 27, from 8:30 pm – 9:30 pm.
Switch off the lights, burn a candle, gather your family and join us for an old fashioned listening party. Check out these ideas and have some fun at home while the lights are off this weekend.
PICNIC. Have a picnic indoors. Doesn’t everyone want a little romance with their covid-cohorts? It doesn’t have to be fancy. A change in routine can bring unexpected joy.
PLAY. Gather your household for a few rounds of Categories. The classic circle game where you must quickly name something that fits in the given category.
STRETCH. Make your favourite animal pose. Cat. Cow. Downward Dog. Eagle. Yoga is all about nature’s creatures, right?
PAMPER. Give yourself a manicure or pedicure, or make a natural face mask. No polish? No problem. Treat yourself to a soak and lotion treatment. You’ve washed those little piggies A LOT this year.
FISH. Or if that’s not your style, maybe Crazy Eights? Gin Rummy? Euchre? Find a new or old favourite with a classic deck of cards.
IMAGINE. Put your creativity to work and make shadow puppets. It’s not just an activity for camping!
Interested in more Environmental programs? Join us Tuesday April 20th at 7:00 pm for Climate Change in Waterloo Region: What Should We Expect and What Do We Do About it? This lecture will be hosted by Dr. Chris Fletcher and Dr. Johanna Wandel of the University of Waterloo.
