Tips on moving with kidz

We are going threw a move as I type and wanted to share few things that worked with helping my kids get threw this change.

1. Be honest, we always tell our kids to be honest so set the example. Let them know when you are thinking of moving, and when you know for sure you are. Last thing you want to do is throw it on the, last minute.

2. If possible let them go house hunting with you or even look threw pictures on the computer of the homes.

3. Be positive! Ask questions like what color would you make your room?, what room do you like best? Where could the tv go? computer? bed?

4. Let them help you move. My kids wanted to help pack up the car so bad, so we let them carry what ever they could.

5.If possible take a tour of the neighborhood, where they will go to school at and maybe even some local places to eat and play.

6. Map you'r move. Grab a old map and outline the route from the old house to the new home. Some times seeing how far or close you are going helps.

Be open to take and hear feedback~
Some thing my kids enjoyed was planning out their room and bathroom. We went window shopping and looked at some things they would like. New themes and colors. Even if you are not going to get anything, it makes kids excited to see what could be.

For small balls, chalk, and bubbles I grabbed 3 small bins as seen above. For water toys I grabbed a big blue bin and I made sure all bins I bought had holes rather they were for wet toys or not. We got small bugs in our storage room and I am hoping the holes would kept bugs from setting up home in the bottom of the bins. Some other ideas we like to use but have not yet are... Trash bin for bigger balls or large shoe rack works too Clothes hamper for pool toys & Mesh bag for sand toys Before we really even got some what organized we use to use crates but I found that with many kids going threw creates to find certain toys it quickly got messy so I really like the idea of having bins for certain toys. I also like that the bins are smaller then the crates we were using so that the smalle…
