3 Ways to Help Kids Pack for a Move, Ewa, Hawaii

Moving is a stressful process for everyone involved, but don’t forget about how your kids feel in this period of transition. Giving your little ones the chance to help will give them closure while making unpacking easier in the future. Here are three ways to help your kids to pack for a move.

How to Help Children Prepare for Moving

1. Declutter Their Spaces

One of the most challenging parts of a move is going through all of your belongings. Since kids tend to accumulate toys, trinkets, and papers from school, take the time to help them to go through their rooms to toss garbage, donate unused items, and organize their belongings. By decluttering long before the move, you can streamline packing. 

2. Let Them Label 

movingLabeling boxes makes it easier to move them to the designated part of your new home and put those belongings in the right place. To streamline your move, let your kids help label their own moving boxes. In addition to having a little fun, they’ll be able to spot their boxes quickly amid the many others. 

3. Offer Quick-Grab Totes

It can be stressful for kids to arrive at their new home without any sense of normalcy. Give a tote or two to each child in your household. Your little one can use these totes to pack their most important belongings, like blankets, toys, and books. Ask your moving team to pack these totes last in the moving truck, so they are the first to come out. Your kids will feel much more at home when they place their favorite items in their new rooms.
