After a Hurricane, National Child Traumatic Stress Network Resources

Simple Activities for Children and Adolescents In response to Hurricane Sandy, the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) has created these activity sheets, which offer ideas to parents and caregivers on ways to keep children and adolescents entertained while waiting out a power outage or help youth from getting bored if stuck inside. These tips sheets provide ideas for games and activities youth can play without supplies, with limited supplies when they have light, or with limited supplies in the dark.

The NCTSN website also offers a variety of resources related to hurricane recovery, including Parent Guidelines for Helping Children After a Hurricane (in English and Spanish).
