 Linda's Moving Checklist for Kids:

  • Always bring your favorite toy or stuffed animal with you to keep you company the day of the move.
  • Remember to bring a night-light or flashlight if you need to stay in a hotel during the move.
  • Pack bedtime stories to bring with you.
  • A backpack filled with toys, games, coloring books, and crayons will keep you busy while your parents help the packers unload the van at your new home.
  • When packing have your parents label your boxes with your name so you'll know where all your special things are.
  • Have your parents take some pictures of your best friends and frame them to take to your new home. This will keep you from being lonely until you can make new friends in your neighborhood.
  • Help your pets during the move by hugging them and telling them that they'll like your new house.
  • Tell your friends you are moving and get their addresses and phone numbers so you can write or call them.
  • Don't forget to say good-bye to your teachers if you are changing schools. Thank them for all that you have learned from them.
  • Moving can be a fun adventure! Smile and know that everyone wants you to love your new home and neighborhood.
