Actually, not telling you what to do, but I would suggest taking the puzzles and what not out of the bags. If these kids were to survive a true bug out situation, then they need to know what to carry and how to use it..
I would say that children wouldn't be having much of a child hood if SHTF. They would be a lot harder and more grown up, much like our grandparents when they were kids. Lot less smiles, more callouses.

Six kids? Phew! Thats going to be fun!
My only problem with the entire scenario is this: When SHTF....if it ever does...there will be more chaos than calm. Children 40+ years ago were tougher, I believe, able to handle outdoor life, and the woods, effectively.
Children, now, are not used to the woods, or relieving themselves outside everyday. Not used to having nothing to do but work on the farm. Adaptation is key here. Wouldn't take long to get used to.
In essence, the kids today are spoiled? I don't want to offend, but this is the only word I can think of. If we have to go back to the woods and live, where people and children alike would have to give up all the luxuries of home, I think more would go crazy from boredom.
