How To Pack Kids' Stuff
To Pack Kids' Stuff You'll need:
- Lots of love and time
- Attention to feelings
- Packing Tape
- Blank newsprint
- Medium and large boxes
How To Pack Kids' Stuff:
- If your kids are still small, pack their rooms last.
Try to prepare your children for the move ahead of time;
the move will be much easier for both of you if your kids
can make a smooth transition into their new home.
- Give older children - ages 5 and up - extra time to pack
their rooms. In addition, help them to pack their rooms.
Time spent packing with them is a great opportunity to talk
about matters that might worry or depress your children
- i.e. leaving friends, going to a new school, living in
a new home, etc. Understanding feelings and offering your
reassurance will ease the transition for them.
- Allow them to select some items to take with them in the
car or in their carry-on bag.
- Most kids' toys are somewhat durable and can go in boxes
with some wadded newsprint or extra clothes to fill in spaces.
- Breakable toys like models or porcelain dolls can be wrapped
in extra clothes and packed in wadded newsprint.
- While the kids are packing, ask them to think about where
they'd like things to go in their new rooms.
- Be sure to drain water from messy materials, like squirt
guns and seal paints. Pack these items together in a box
lined with a plastic bag.
- Have your kids seal the boxes and write their names or
put their favorite stickers on each box. Now you're done!
