Moving is a sensitive issue for the kiddos, especially when it comes to their bedrooms. In fact, your children may be feeling the same nerves, anxiety, and stress about the move as you are. After all, they are about to transition into a brand-new environment. This can be a big concept to grasp. A great way to make them more comfortable is by packing the kids’ rooms mindfully and playfully.
Packing the Kids’ Rooms for a Move
Children feel ownership over their belongings, so make sure you communicate very clearly what’s going to happen throughout the moving process. You’ll pack everything in boxes, put them on a truck, and bring them to your new house. Assuage their fears by reminding them that you’re not packing up your things forever. They will get them back! And don’t forget to pack a last-minute box containing their absolute favorite toys and necessities. This box needs to be easily accessible when you reach the new house.
As you’re packing your children’s rooms, find ways to involve them in the process. This will vary depending on their ages. For example, little ones can decorate the moving boxes, and older ones can help decide what they want to donate.
