SHELTERBOX AT HOME

Some Activities for our Supporters Practicing Social Distancing

Activities to keep them busy


While schools are out and it’s harder to find things to do with the kids, why not keep them entertained and learning with some activities from us at ShelterBox Canada! Below you will find activities that your family can do together along with some colouring pages and crafts to keep those hands busy.

Virtually Visit the Information Center


Since there is no travel at the moment, why not virtually visit our information center in Turo, UK. Here you can learn all about ShelterBox operations as if you were walking through yourself.

THE LAST TENT


SUGGESTED AGES: 12-16

This activity is designed to encourage debate and empathy, leading a participant or group towards making a very difficult decision. It’s a mock-up of the kind of situation a ShelterBox Response Team (SRT) volunteer could find themselves in – having to weigh up emotive issues and make judgements in the field.

Need more of a challenge?


ShelterBox Off the Grid challenges people to go 12 hours without using any type of electronic device!

When disasters strike and power lines go down, families are left without comfort, light and electricity. We challenge young supporters to think about what this would be like and then experience it for themselves!

Share your experiences with us and others after you complete it on social media!

Let others know about the challenge you’re taking on before you start and have them join you!

Have your supporters pledge to see you make it through your stretch of being off the grid by setting up a fundraising page.

The rules are simple. No electricity and nothing with an ‘on’ button. How far you take the challenge is up to you, the bigger the challenge the more people sponsor you, the more you will be helping people in crisis – who have no shelter, no home and no access to any power.
