Introduction:Storms can be scary at any age. Children can learn how to get trough this difficult experience
Prayer is an important way to ease all of life stresses. Teaching children at an early age about the power of prayer will prove to leave them feeling comforted and less anxious. Don't forget the flashlight!
Childcare providers can teach their children to play games that require more of a quite environment while setting quietly in darkness. Children can learn about their imagination and creativity during these times. Don't forget the flashlight!
Children can talk about what everyone would like for a snack. Sharing ideas can take up a little more time that will be much appreciated before the storm warnings have ended. Don't forget the flashlight!
Children can draw whatever is on their minds. Then, they can share it with everyone around them, and share all about their masterpieces with much pride. Drawing is therapeutic, and known to ease tension. Parents and caregivers can all get evolved and draw along with them to show interest in what they are doing. Flashlights are comforting and can make their experience feel like a spooky, fun, slumber party. Reader's book lights will prove helpful to children who may want to read or color. This activity is fun, and adventurous. Don't forget the flashlight!
Children may feel less anxious if parents or childcare givers plan a storm party in advance. Ask the children sharing your home or childcare center what is of interest to them. Then make sure you have these things available for easy access during the next storm warning alert. Don't forget the flashlight!
Make sure that children always feel safe under your care during a storm. Children who feel secure during a storm will feel secure when the next type of tragedy happens.
I'm not a big fan of storms even for as old as I am. However no power does make a good time to play board and card games. I get to spend time with my family and being together makes the storm much better too. We have a table in our game room, which is in the basement. Perfect spot for a bad storm.
Coming back with another h5
