How To Prepare Moving Your Family Home

Moving homes brings with it a mixture of excitement and anxiousness. While you are excited to be starting the next stage of your life, in a new area, not everyone may feel the same way, especially if you are moving as a family. So, how do you prepare your loved ones for the move? To start with, the whole endeavor will be much easier if you choose a new neighborhood that everyone likes and is much better than the previous. That being said, kids can still have a hard time adapting to a new school and making new friends, so it is always best to prepare them for it ahead of time. Further, you will have to pack your current home, and of course, hire movers that will make the whole process much easier for everyone.

Choosing the right neighborhood

The first and most important step of a move is choosing the right neighborhood. The whole family should be involved in making this decision, and you must consider a variety of factors when choosing it. Firstly, how far away is it from where you work? Another big aspect to consider is the level of safety in the neighborhood, especially if you have kids. Is it a family area? Are the neighbors friendly? Remember to ask yourself these types of questions.

Preparing the kids

Preparing kids for moving home is always harder than the adults because they will have a harder time understanding why the huge change is necessary. It’s important for the adults to be open to any questions they ask, and you should make a point of highlighting all of the fun new aspects of the new home. In addition to simply talking about the new location, it is also important to take them there several times so they can get a betters sense of the place (not to mention start the process of creating memories early!).

Packing the current home

Packing all of your belongings in boxes is not a fun process, but you can do your best to make it more exciting for the whole family. Consider playing some music while organizing everything that you will be taking with you. Moreover, remember to only do a little bit at a time, instead of rushing to pack everything and causing chaos in the process.

Hiring Movers

The very last step in preparing for the move is to hire the professionals that will help bring all of your belongings to the new home. There are tons of household movers to choose from depending on the area you are from, with one example being Meyer Movers, as they can assist with both a local and international move. Do not forget about this part, as it will make your move experience much easier.

Getting organized and planning ahead are both important factors to consider when you are preparing to move your family home. Already, this can be a stressful time for everyone, especially with everything else that goes on in everyday life. That is why it is important to maintain the right type of attitude throughout the move, and of course, choose a new location that you are excited about making new memories in.

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
