Moving to Little Rock Can Be a Family Affair

Family MovingMoving to Little Rock is a big job, but you don't have to attempt it by yourself. Rather, you can turn moving to Little Rock into a family project that inspires some family bonding time together and makes the whole situation a lot more doable—and perhaps even pleasant.

Here are some pointers to get the entire family taking part in the project.

Make a Plan

The day prior to packing, hold a family meeting and talk about the moving functions that need to be accomplished. Assign tasks to everyone with clear instructions about how to manage them. Your kids might enjoy to-do lists—there is something pretty satisfying about checking something off as complete, no matter if you are young or old! Young children may enjoy helping you label the boxes, or even decorating them with markers or crayons. Create a sense of teamwork, and when it's time to get started...

Make It an Event

Packing sounds an awful lot like a burden. Instead of asking (or demanding!) the kids to do it haphazardly on their own, plan a day or some chunks of time and have everyone pitching in. When you commence, prepare a special drink or snack and have some pizza delivered. Encourage teamwork.

Schedule break times for treats, and agree that when the packing is done, you'll all do something fun as a family. That may mean going out for a meal, or doing something different in your new part of town! You could even hand out prizes for getting the most done in an allotted time frame or for donating the most unwanted or outgrown items. Speaking of which:

Go Through Old Items

There's little value to pack any items your children have gotten too big for. Keep the space and time by purging them prior to your! Even younger children can decide if they have some items they don't play with anymore. You might choose to donate those unwanted items to children in need, which can be an enriching process for your children, too.

Get Garage Sale Ready

If you are going to hold a moving sale, ponder allowing your children save the money from their contributions. This might inspire them to get rid of a few extra toys and clothes they don't use anymore, and it helps them feel more involved in the process. They could be more willing to help you work the garage sale, also!

Let Them Handle Their Rooms

Depending upon the age of your kids, you can have them pack their own rooms. Provide some quick instructions on how to pack clothes, awkwardly shaped items, pictures, and more. You or the moving company can handle the big or fragile items.

Box Together

Work as a group in the living room and other common rooms. Younger children can easily pack books and other non-fragile belongings; older children and teens can help you with items like dishes and small appliances. Use the time to chat, or take turns picking your favorite songs to share with one another.
