Pack memories. If your kids are upset about having to move from their home, then the last thing you want to do is completely uproot them without letting them save any memories to take with them. Make sure to pack something to send with your Salt Lake City movers that your kids will be able to remember your old home by. It can be something as little as a photograph of your old home to flowers from your outside garden that they can plant at your new home.

Stick with the routine. Nothing will make your kids feel more thrown off their routine than having to move. Since routines are important to both you and your kids, stick with the normal routines as much as possible, so that your kids do not feel like everything is changing at once. Just by keeping bed times, dinner times, and other daily habits the same, you will be able to make your kids feel a lot more grounded while using your Salt Lake City moving company to move to a new home.

Keep in touch with friends. This is especially important if you are moving to a new home that is far away. Keep in touch with your family, friends, and whoever else may have been important in your child’s life through Facebook, FaceTime, Skype, or any other way. By doing this, your kid’s will be able to have a little piece of home come, which will prove invaluable when bouts of homesickness arises.

Don’t forget to make it fun. Sure, moving is plenty stressful, but you do not need to let your kids know that. They will be much more likely to relax and go with the flow of moving if you turn having to use your Salt Lake City movers into an exciting adventure. When packing, you can speed up the process by turning it into a game. For example, if you tell your kids that whoever packs up their toys the fastest gets a prize, you will be amazing at home much faster everything is magically packed and ready to go!
