Most parents don’t throw goodbye parties, but it can do wonders for the kids. It will give them an opportunity to cope with the move as well as bring closure to the friendships they are abandoning. Don’t go overboard – keep it casual and simple, with a potluck or chips-and-dips. Come moving day and the children will be in a jovial mood – and you will have a smooth move.
Moving to a new place can take a toll on every family member. Organize a family meeting well ahead of the move. Discuss what you have in store for the kids. If possible, let everyone chip in about the moving day.
Let your children pack some of the items, not delicate ones for sure. They can decorate and write on the boxes to indicate what’s in them. This way, the kids will not only be entertained, but they’ll also be helping with the move.
There’s a massive variety of boxes designed for moving with kids. Buy one for each kid. They can fill them with valuable items they love and cherish. It will keep them engaged as you pack the rest of the stuff.
Pack the basket with their favorite sandwiches, cookies, drinks, fruits, and so forth. It will come handy when they need a break. Having the drinks and food will also keep them occupied as you continue with the work.
If your little ones are still young, you can hire a nanny to pay attention to them. Trust me; this will make moving a breeze.
Moving with kids is already stressful. Hire a reputable moving company in Portland to do all the heavy lifting as you keep your little ones entertained.
