5 Quick Tips: Moving with Children from Silk Touch Moves and Relocations

  1. Before the move: let the kids help you cut the clutter from the house. Walk through each space and make family decisions about what is no longer used or useful.
  2. Put together activity kits to keep small children occupied while a lot of stuff is being moved about, in or out.
  3. Kids respond well if you keep them informed of the big and small changes to routines and their environment. They want to feel involved and included in the process.
  4. Involve your 6+ year-olds in the unpacking process – Let them help you organize their rooms to help them learn/get used to locating and putting away toys, books, clothes, shoes, etc.
  5. Unpack in this order: kids’ rooms, play room, kitchen, parents’ bedroom, common areas.
