Children are creatures of habit who like to maintain the status quo. With so many things changing at once, a move can be difficult on your children. Use the following tips and tricks to make the move entertaining for your kids:
- Make an Adventure of Exploring the New Neighborhood
A great way to get the kids excited about your new house is to take a fun-filled tour of the new neighborhood. Walk through streets near your home and point out distinguishing features of the new area. You should also find some of the kids’ favorite stores and restaurants and take them there shortly after you are settled in the new house. Some familiarity will help them cope with all of the new surroundings.
- Leave the Packing to the Kids
Even packing can be a fun moving activity for children. Give the kids specific packing tasks that keep them occupied. Before the movers come, you should double-check the boxes they pack to ensure that they are secure. On the big day, let the moving company handle the logistics so you can focus your attention on your child.
- Plan Out their New Room Together
Whether you have a son, a daughter, or both, spend some time together planning out your child’s new room. Involving children in the way their room will be set up makes them feel included in the entire process. They get the joy of sleeping in a room that they love and you can appreciate making them happy.
