Kids can be a challenge when your family is moving. Republic understands these challenges, so we’ve prepared some tips for you when moving with small children. Once you’re in your new home, you’ll be extremely busy unpacking and trying to settle in. You’ll want to help the youngest family members have this childhood move kept as a good memory. Remember that stress-free moves begin with hiring one of the best moving companies around. Contact Republic Moving & Storage today!
Prepare in advance for an easy transition before the movers even arrive by checking online for some resources that might be of help. Call local preschool programs, early childhood care centers or nearby churches. Try the library, too. Teenagers sometimes leave their names and numbers at libraries when they’re willing to babysit after school or on weekends. It might be best to bring the babysitter into your home to help with their adjustment, at least initially, since another new environment during the first week might overwhelm the kids. Fortunately, if Republic Moving and Storage is handling your move, you are already working with one of the best moving companies, and won’t have to worry about other details of your move during this time.
Your new town certainly must have some parks and playgrounds that would be perfect for your children, so take some breaks from unpacking your boxes and get outside to really enjoy the surroundings. Breaks are good for both of you. If it’s summer, a splash park could add even more fun. Another way to keep the kids and the whole family upbeat is to offer some rewards to the children if they’re helpful. Maybe they’ll play quietly in the same room while you are working, so you can keep an eye on them. Or, a long rest period or nap would be wonderful! Reward the good behavior by taking them out for a day of fun to see the sights of your new town as quickly as you can.
Another great thing would be to find your local zoo. Children always get excited to see wild animals, but especially if they can have a little picnic at the zoo. More family-friendly ideas would be a trip to the skate park, a hands-on science museum, natural history museum or an aquarium.
