With the winter weather, we certainly haven't gotten outside as much as usual, but even so, we know this is something we need to work on. In "The Green Hour," find ideas and inspiration for getting your kids outside for one hour each day.

Todd Christopher, author of the National Wildlife Foundation's Greenhour.org goes back to the basics of outdoor play and exploration- something modern kids don't have much experience in.

The important thing here is that the green hour is unstructured- no games or planned sports- just a time of natural and spontaneous exploration.

Find out more at the National Wildlife Foundation or purchase The Green Hour here.
