Small child playing with toys in his room

Moving houses can be stressful for many but the stress is greater if you have small children who don’t quite understand what’s happening. Parents will have to put in different amounts of effort at packing their children’s rooms depending on the child’s age and the size of their room.

Helping children pack their room is a good opportunity for parents to reassure their kids about moving. It is a great time to help them overcome any fears they may have and help them open up to new experiences.

As with every other house, it is important to have a game plan before you start packing your child’s room. We recommend the following tips to help you pack your child’s room easily.

Clean up before you begin

Before you pack, it is important to declutter the room. This helps eliminate extra items you won’t need in the future and reduces your packing load.

Choose a peaceful morning to sit down with your kids and sort their items out. This is a great activity for kids as it helps them understand which items hold value for them and which ones are just taking up space.

Toss out any items that don’t hold sentimental value, but make sure to keep your kids involved in the process. Since decluttering is an emotional experience for children, let them decide which items they want to keep, and then try reaching a settlement.

Choose appropriate packing materials

After an emotional declutter process, you will have a fair idea of the amount of storage needed to pack the items. If you are unsure, we can supervise and provide packing materials to you for a seamless move.

You will need boxes, bubble wrap, packing tape, packing paper, and tie-down straps for starters. You can also get stickers to let your children decorate their boxes and make them feel more involved in the moving process.

Essentials to remember

Before starting to pack, we recommend you make a bag of essentials that your children will need to use till the day of the move. Furthermore, we recommend packing your child’s room at the very end to not overwhelm them with the process.

An essentials bag may include their clothes, toys, books, games, school supplies and study material, diapers, toothbrushes and toothpaste, and prescription medicine.

After the packing process is complete, reward your children and yourself with your favorite snacks and a movie to wind down.
