Moving can be tough on your kids. They may be changing schools and leaving friends, or they may just be saying goodbye to the only home they know. It’s important to ensure your kids are involved as much as possible with the moving process. Our Seattle local movers understand that every move is a big deal and it’s important to make sure your kids are just as comfortable as you are.
Make Your Kids a Part of the Decision Process
When you are shopping for a new home, your kids should be involved. Take them with you to visit a new home so you can see if they’ll like it or take photos and videos to show them later. Once you pick a home, make sure your kids understand where everything will be in the home, where they will sleep, etc.
Your Kids Can Help You Move!
If your kids are school aged, they are likely able to be great little helpers for your move. During the packing and planning process, they can make lists and help organize and label items. Let them look up decoration tips for the new home as well to make it a more comfortable process. When it comes to packing, make a game out of it. Have your kids compete to pack the fastest or organize the most items.
Moving Day Assistance
For kids who are old enough, you can get them actively involved in moving day. Have them clean up empty rooms or furniture that is waiting to be loaded by your Seattle local movers. Give your children your phone and have them take pictures to document the move and create a collage. Of course, if your children are a little too young, bringing them over to a family or friend’s house is a better idea than having to worry about them during a stressful move.
