5 ways children can help during a move

by | Aug 3, 2018 | Features

 

Children can be included in the moving process in several ways that both make them feel useful while helping ease the burden of work that is resting on your shoulders. Have them start by organizing their belongings into two piles consisting of what they would like to keep, and what they do not mind giving away. Also have them prepare a box of essentials for items that they will need immediate access to right before the move takes place.

Key Takeaways:

  • Allowing children to become involved in your move can help them learn to engage in useful tasks as opposed to being lost in technology.
  • Have your children separate their belongings into two different sections: items that they want to take with them, and those that they can part with.
  • Also have your child pack an essentials box which are items that they will need access to right before the move.

“Explain to your loved ones the idea of donation – in your case, donating things to kids who are not as fortunate as they are when it comes to owning so many toys, games, books, and so on. Prepare some boxes with items which other children will enjoy more, and then drop them at a donation site.”
