So, we know how stressful moving houses can be, and we know how stressful kids can get, now put them together and you can end up with one big ball of stress. But it doesn’t have to be that way! Having a plan can easily relive a lot of the pressure of moving houses with munchkins running about. Here are my top tips for moving houses with kids!
Make packing fun!
The kids will be so much easier to manage if they’re entertained! But let’s be smart about this… if only there were a way to entertain the kids whilst they’re actually being a big help! If you can turn packing into a game, such as, ‘whoever packs the fastest wins!’ then you’re not only making it less stressful to entertain the kids, but the little ones will also be helping and more importantly, they will feel included and in control.
Sugar coating things for our kids is just something we do as caring mums. Change as big as moving homes, away from their old room and memories, can really stress them out. But, moving is just not something you can hide. It is really important to keep the little ones in the loop with everything from the very start – you’ll be surprised at how much your child can understand. And when it comes to moving day the kids will feel a lot more at ease.
