Let the children help you
  1. Draw your future home in bright colors and details. During this process, tell your child how much fun you will have at your new place. Cartoons and toys seem a great solution, but at young an age it is often not recommended to watch cartoons, and old toys quickly get bored. Take your child with colorful magazines, come up with interesting games, and look at examples on the Internet.

Let the kid mark and decorate the boxes if he wants to. Older kids can sign what’s in them.  Age from 3 to 15 years called the most difficult period for moving: up to 3 years, the child is relatively easy to part with the “old place of residence”, after 15 people perceive the move rationally.
  3. Spend a farewell evening with balloons, cake and games. Don’t let the moment of parting become sad.
  4. Turn on the cartoons while you’re packing. This will keep the baby busy and give you the opportunity to clean up.
  5. Use the boxes so that your children can play with them. Let them build their home or shelter. The road to a new place long. Especially if it’s a move to another city or state. For example, from California to Texas.
  6. The journey takes a lot of time, so you need to come up with games and fun songs in advance so your child won’t get bored.
  7. Delight them with small surprises like candy or small toys. This help them take their mind off the chaotic atmosphere. Also, try to present moving to your children, as the happiest and the best thing in their lives.
