5 Tips for an Easy Move with Kids

Family move

Moving day can be very overwhelming for you and your family. For your kids, the stress can be far more emotional than it is for you. While you worry to make sure that all of the logistics are in place, make sure that you remember the emotional aspect of the move and how it will affect your kids. Keep the following five tips in mind to make your move in Ottawa as smooth as possible for your kids!

  1. Make it Exciting

Your dream kitchen isn’t necessarily at the top of your kids’ list of interests. Find the reasons that make your new home and neighbourhood exciting for your kid.  Take some time to tour the new neighbourhood. Take a stroll and visit the playgrounds, parks, and ice cream shops. It’s important to make the move just as exciting for your kids as it is for you!

  1. Kids Toys

You don’t want your kids to get the impression that they’ll never see their beloved blankie again. Reassure them that you’re only putting things away temporarily until they’re moved into your new home. Make sure you put together a bag or box that has all of the things that your kid can’t part with for more than ten minutes. The last thing you want while moving is to have to find that one toy or outfit through hundreds of boxes.

  1. Moving Help

When you’re trying to decide what to keep for your new home, it can be easy to throw away some of the bigger pieces to avoid moving them. First Rate Movers is here to help you move all of your belongings without any hassle, so don’t be afraid to keep these! Your kid will thank you for keeping important elements of your old home in your new home, as these reminders will help them become used to the new space.

  1. Babysitting

On moving day, ask a family or friend to babysit your kids. Not only is their running around a distraction, but it can also be a hazardous space for them to play. Avoid the added stress and plan ahead!

  1. Say Goodbye!

Your kids will value the chance to say goodbye to their old home before moving. Take the time to tour around the soon-to-be old neighbourhood and say goodbye to their favourite places and neighbours.

You and your family are now ready for your move in Ottawa! Give us a call at First Rate Movers and our dedicated movers will be ready to assist you on the big day.
