The time Little Eco and I spend outdoors has decreased drastically since I started working full-time. We used to spend at least an hour outside together each afternoon. It was our Green Hour, and my favourite hour of the day. Long commuting times, combined with winter, has meant that by the time we find time for outdoor play it's either dark or raining. So rather than miss out on much-needed outdoor time, I've been thinking of quick and easy outdoor play ideas for when it’s wet or dark.
