SAN ANTONIO – When the power goes out, it can be scary for kids. But no worries! Nanny Jada Rashawn has you covered with fun activities for kids - without electronics.

“I say bring out all those board games, all those cards,” Rashawn said.

She recommended the game Throw Throw Burrito. “This is just like dodgeball reinvented,” Rashawn said.

  • Play with light-up slime.
