Make a paper house with lights that switch off

Celebrate Earth Hour

Activity time 40 minutes

During Earth Hour we switch off the lights in our homes and businesses to give the planet a break from electricity use.  

In this video, we make a house out of cardboard with lights that we can switch off and learn about how we can help the environment.
