well, for the kids, they'll need some entertainment and stuff to keep them occupied and calm them down -- I suggest learning to do string figures and games, ukulele and/or harmonicas (very portable instruments) and small songbook, and a chess set...along with a few decks of playing cards. If you can, jacks and marbles are also easy to bring around and play anywhere. Storytelling and Singing are also fine skills for the whole family to develop, always portable!

Yes! Kids will have a strong need and a desire for play, and if you don't maintain some normalcy, then they'll freak out. Many games require no props. I would encourage you to look at The New Games book. Many of these are very popular when kids are introduced to them.

Likewise many simulation games can be used for play as well as to teach a lesson or for homeschooling.
Here's some on World Hunger:

Many games like Mancala or Chess can be made by using objects in Nature or even using things like nuts and bolts. I've made a chess set like that:

That one used spark plugs too

If you have things like musical instruments and ready made games then they'll love you for it. Hopefully most parens will bug-in as I think bugging out is ridiculous for a family, but you should have bug out bags for practically everyone to carry.
