Power Outage Sign Activities for a Power Outage

Due to severe storms at one time or another we will experience a power outage.  Keeping yourself and your kids busy can be a chore.  Listed below are activities to keep everyone occupied:

  1. Get out the board games. Often, we are too caught up in the hustle and bustle to enjoy actual family time. Seize the moment and enjoy a board game together. 
  2. Workbooks, puzzles, or coloring books are a great way to relax and pass time. These can be fun for family members of all ages. 
  3. Bring back charades!  Playing charades could be a great way to get your family laughing and communicating. 
  4. Get out your instruments and make some music.Have a sing along and perform your own personal concert. 
  5. Use your artistic skills and spend time drawing, painting, or crafting. Make collages, drawings, paintings, or do origami. Or really go big and make some jewelry! 
  6. Exercise or do yoga. Get steps in by walking around the house (you might feel crazy but hey, who cares?) or do some stretching or make up your own work out and have a family boot camp. 
  7. Make a comic book. You could do these individually or together as a family. 
  8. Play hangman or tic-tac-toe. This would be a great way to pass time, especially if you do not have a board game on-hand.
  9. Play trivia. Make your own questions! 
  10. Do crossword puzzles, Sudoku, or word games. They pass the time and work your brain. 
  11. Show the kids how you played as a kid. Grab extra sheets and pillows to build a fort. 
  12. Get out the yarn. Do needlework, sewing, cross-stitch, crocheting, or knitting. You can make a blanket, scarf, hat, or create wall art. 
  13. Visit with friends. Get to know your neighbors. Take a walk, weather permitting. 

Don’t forget to repack your kit after each use so that it’s ready again for your next power outage or rainy day!

 Also, don't forget that Florence Utilities now has real-time updates of any power outages in Florence, Killen, Rogersville and the rest of their services area.
