TIPS TO MAKE MOVING WITH KIDS EASIER


From packing up to saying goodbye to a home and friends, moving can be tough for kids and adults. We've put together some great tips on how to make a move with kids easier on everyone!

GET KIDS INVOLVED:
When your children are involved in the moving process they tend to take ownership and feel excited about the move. Have your kids help with age-appropriate tasks like packing their toys, setting up a yard sale, or choosing paint colours for the new house. 

VISIT THE NEW NEIGHBORHOOD:
Take a tour of the new neighborhood. Drive around the block, show your child the route they would take to get to school and check out that awesome new park nearby! If it’s too far for a visit, show them photo’s of the new home and neighborhood. 

CREATE A MOVING DAY BAG:
Fill a backpack with fun toys and activities to entertain your little one during moving day. This will also give them a safe place to keep their special belongings like their favourite stuffed animal. 

SAY GOODBYE:
Before your moving day, have a goodbye party with friends and neighbours. When the time is right, take time with your child to visit every room in the house they are leaving to say goodbye. Reflect on the memories and talk about the exciting new memories they will get to make at the new house.
