Keep Your Family Safe and Entertained During a Storm

We put together some tips to help keep your family safe and entertained while staying inside during a hurricane or storm.


  • Be sure to fully charge electronic devices (charge your portable battery chargers too!)
  • Download movies, audiobooks and games onto those devices so they are accessible if your internet is disabled
  • Give your children their own flashlight (this can provide them comfort and empowerment during the storm)
  • Give your children headphones (noise-cancelling headphones can help calm frightened children)
  • Consider a trip to the bookstore before the storm to let your children pick out new books, coloring books and crafts


  • Build a fort together in a safe closet or room away from windows and set it up as a theater with snacks, a cooler, soft blanket and pillow
  • Have a scavenger hunt (with or without a flashlight)
  • Draw and color portraits of each other
  • Make themed collages out of pictures and words cuts from old magazines
  • Write a letter to your future selves
  • Hurricane The Musical: Write and perform a silly play about the hurricane
  • Choreograph a dance and perform
