EVACUATION WITH KIDS

By: mermaidlaw, 10:49 PM GMT on May 25, 2007

Hello everyone. I hope you are having a wonderful night!! There are many good blogs here, about preparing for the hurricane season, and also evacuation plans! I just wanted to add some tips about how things can be easy with children.

If you have to leave your home, take a mini toy box. Find small items at the dollar store, like coloring books, with crayons. Decks of cards can be fun, for many age groups. Also buy a flash light for each child, {OF COURSE NOT BABIES}. Children love to play with flash lights!

If you go to a hotel, pull the table away from windows, and put a bed spread over it. throw some pillows under it, and let the kids sit under it, with flash lights. Tell them that this is a camp out! It takes them away from the fear! Children get bored easy, so have a coloring contest with them. Tell them that they will get a prize for best picture. They have to color for 1 hour. If you go to a shelter, this is still a good idea. You may not be able to make the tent, however, you will be able to keep them busy. Even if you go to a friends home, it is good to have your "toy box"!

I would like to go into more detail, however I hope this helps!

Wuvs you ALL!!:)
