Before you move, take photos of the old house and friends for a photo album keepsake. Exchange phone numbers, addresses, and emails to stay in touch.
Label and decorate moving boxes for your kids. Return library books and rented movies. Make sure all art supplied are sealed and pack them separately.
Have a special toy ready for your kids on moving day for the ride to your new home. Bring a book, game or craft to occupy them once you arrive there. Bring plenty of snacks and drinks.
Plan a trip to your child’s new school & check out the school’s website. Take a walk in your new neighborhood to find local parks, attractions, and meet your neighbors.
