Engaging children can be a full-time job in the best of times, but it can be even more challenging when the power goes out. Take a deep breath. It’s going to be OK. Here are some fun and safe indoor activities for children when you are off the grid.

Board games and puzzles: Many board games and puzzles can be played without electricity, providing entertainment and mental stimulation.

Arts and crafts: Draw, color, paint, or create crafts using materials like paper, crayons, markers, and scissors.

Reading and storytelling: Reading books together or independently is a great way to pass the time. Encourage the kids to create their own stories or participate in storytelling activities.

Indoor scavenger hunt: Create a list of items for children to find within the house, ensuring the items are safe and easily accessible.

Card games: Play various card games that are suitable for the children's ages, such as Go Fish, Old Maid, or Crazy Eights.

Charades or other acting games: Play charades or other acting games that encourage creativity, teamwork, and communication skills.

Indoor camping: Set up a tent or create a fort using blankets and pillows. Children can pretend they are camping indoors with flashlights and sleeping bags.

Origami or paper crafts: Teach children how to make simple origami figures or other paper crafts using available resources.

Imaginative play: Encourage the kids to engage in imaginative play with their toys such as dolls, action figures, or building blocks.

Physical activities: Burn off some of that pent-up energy by engaging in indoor physical activities such as yoga, stretching, or simple exercises like jumping jacks or push-ups.

Remember to prioritize safety, have necessary supplies on hand, and follow any evacuation orders or guidelines provided by local authorities during a hurricane. Good luck. You’ll be fine!
