What: The Green Hour

Features: Research shows that spending time in nature actually makes kids happier, healthier and even smarter. Todd Christopher, the creator of the GreenHour.org, has filled this book with activities designed to encourage discovery, creative play, and a wonder of nature, as well as practical advice for parents to make getting outdoors easy and worry-free.

Green Factor: The premise behind The Green Hour is to encourage parents to carve one ‘green hour’ in to their kids’ days. This year, celebrate Earth Day every day for an hour (or more!) outdoors.

Bonus: We love that The Green Hour mixes family time with outdoor education. Brilliant! Watch this video trailer to learn more.
