Moral Boosters are very important during an emergency. Maintaining high morale is one of the single greatest factors in successfully coping with a major evacuation emergency or disaster. Having a few diversionary items on hand will help to fortify a person’s mental, emotional and spiritual strength, especially if spending time in a public emergency shelter. Small children’s items should be carefully considered for these harder times. Choose smaller toys and trinkets that will entertain children for longer period of times.
Morale Booster suggestions:
Coloring books with crayons or colored pencils
Games and puzzles
Small craft projects
Small stuffed animals / toys (Teddy bear, puppets)
