What a great idea - green hour. My kids are at that great age right now where they want to be outside and get cranky when we make them come in for dinner and then in for bath time and bed. They are happiest splitting time between the front yard and back. We have just been able to enjoy the outdoors for the first time this past week. We definitely need a family yard work day!

I definitely think that as kids get older, they tend to find indoor activities more appealing. Maybe this will change when they hit middle school/high school, but for now the lure of the laptop is infinitely more appealing to L. than the great outdoors!
