Moving to Killeen Can Be a Family Affair

Family MovingMoving to Killeen is a large task, but you don't have to deal with it alone. Rather, you should turn moving to Killeen into a family activity that inspires some quality time together and makes the whole job much more manageable—and maybe even fun.

Here are several pointers to get the whole family involved in the project.

Get Organized

The day prior to packing, hold a family meeting and talk about the moving assignments that need to be completed. Appoint responsibilities to everyone with clear directions about how to do them. Your kids might enjoy checklists—there's something very rewarding about crossing something off a list, no matter if you are young or old! Young children may take pleasure in helping you label the boxes, or even beautifying them with stickers or crayons. Create a sense of teamwork, and when it's time to begin...

Make It an Event

Packing feels an awful lot like a chore. Rather than asking (or demanding!) the kids to do it whenever on their own, plan a day or some chunks of time and have everyone pitching in. When you commence, whip up a special drink or goodies and have some pizza delivered. Encourage everyone to communicate with each other if they need help.

Schedule break times for treats, and agree that when the task is finished, you'll all do something entertaining together. That may mean going out to dinner, or doing something fun 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. Which leads us to:

Sort Through Old Items

There is little value to pack and move any things your kids have stopped wearing or playing with. Keep the space and time by getting rid of them prior to your! Even younger children can decide if they have any toys they don't play with anymore. You might decide to donate those unwanted items to children in need, which can be a gratifying process for your kids, also.

Get Garage Sale Ready

If you're going to have a moving sale, ponder letting your children save the proceeds from from their items. This might encourage them to purge a few additional toys and clothes they don't need anymore, and it helps them to be more interested in the process. They may be more agreeable to assist you with manning the moving sale, too!

Let Them Handle Their Rooms

If your kids are old enough, you could have them pack their own rooms. Give them a few instructions on how to pack clothes, bulky items, pictures, and more. You or the moving company can take care of the big or delicate items.

Box Together

Work collectively in the kitchen and other common rooms. Younger children can easily pack books and other non-breakable items; tweens and teens can help you with items like kitchenware and small appliances. Use the time to chat, or take turns picking your favorite songs to share with one another.
