Moving to Colorado Springs Can Be a Family Affair

Family MovingMoving to Colorado Springs is a huge task, but you do not need to tackle it by yourself. Instead, you can change moving to Colorado Springs into a family activity that inspires some family bonding time together and makes the whole ordeal a lot more doable—and perhaps even enjoyable.

Here are a few pointers to get the entire family involved in the project.

Make a Plan

The day prior to packing, hold a family meeting and discuss the moving assignments that need to be accomplished. Assign tasks to everyone with clear directions about how to accomplish them. Your kids might enjoy to-do lists—there's something very rewarding about marking something "done", no matter what age you are! Young children could take pleasure in helping you label the boxes, or even beautifying them with markers or crayons. Generate a sense of teamwork, and when it is time to get started...

Make It an Event

Packing seems an awful lot like a chore. Rather than asking (or demanding!) the kids to do it at random on their own, plan a day or some blocks of time and have everyone packing at the same time. When you commence, prepare a special drink or treat and order some pizza. Encourage teamwork.

Don’t’ forget to incorporate break times for nourishment, and agree that when the task is completed, you will all do something relaxing together. That might mean going out to your favorite family restaurant, or doing something fun in your new neighborhood! You could even hand out prizes for getting the most done in a specified time frame or for getting rid of the most unwanted or outgrown items. Which leads us to:

Sort Through Old Items

There is little value to move any things your children have gotten too big for. Conserve the space and time by going through them ahead of time! Even younger children can decide if they have any toys they don't want anymore. You might agree to donate those unwanted items to children in need, which can be an enriching accomplishment for your children, too.

Get Garage Sale Ready

If you are going to have a moving sale, ponder allowing your children keep the money from their contributions. This could inspire them to get rid of a few additional toys and clothes they do not need anymore, and it helps them feel more involved in the process. They may be more agreeable to help you man the garage sale, too!

Let Them Pack Their Rooms

Depending upon the age of your kids, you can put them in charge of boxing up 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 large or fragile stuff.

Box Together

Work together in the family room and other common rooms. Kids can without difficulty pack books and other non-fragile items; tweens and teens can help you with items like kitchenware and small appliances. Use the time to have a conversation, or take turns choosing your favorite songs to share with each other.
