Moving houses is stressful enough as it is. Add little kids to the mix, and you’ve got a recipe for a major headache! Make the process easier for yourself and the kids by following these top tips from our packers and movers Wellington.
It’s important that your little ones understand why you’re moving and leaving behind their friends, school and extracurricular activities. Help them get excited about the move, helping you pack and their new home to minimise stress and disruption.
Label boxes precisely
While labelling your boxes properly is always important, it’s especially important when you’re moving with young kids. They’ll need all their essential school items and toys as soon as you arrive at your new home, so keep the peace by preparing your boxes ahead of time.
Get them involved
By getting your kids involved in the move, they’ll be able to take ownership of their belongings and start to get excited about their new home. They can help by packing up their own rooms or labelling boxes, but remember to keep track of all the logistics for your own peace of mind.
Moving is a stressful time, but your kids need to see that you’re calm and positive about the move in order to feel good about it themselves. Think strategically but make sure to have lots of fun during the move to make it a memorable experience for your little ones!
