If you have entertaining things in and around your home, it is great! Here are some things that you can do for entertainment in emergency situations.

  • When you have kids, think of making a special box of activities for them. It will help them to get through the rough patches of emergency time better. Having in your mind the worries that your child may get bored with the activity box, you can try to fill it with some toys and activities that he or she has t\loved to play with.

  • Encourage your children to write a story or draw pictures of about they felt on the day of disaster.

  • Give them play dough or clay to make some symbolic creations.

  • Music is fun for both adults and children. You can create music with the help of instruments or rhythm toys that helps to relieve the stress and tension.

Include a list of games that need no equipment at all.
