Of course, the process of planning and undertaking a move can be a high-stress process and moving with children can be a challenging task for a family. As we focus on the move itself, it’s often easy to forget about the actual traveling aspect of the process.

We’ll take care of all the logistics to help remove your moving related stress. This will allow you to focus more on your family, and especially your children, during the process.

Our Tips

Below, we’ve outlined several tips from Town and Country Removals on how to keep your children happy, excited, and distracted during your big move.

  • Let Your Children Pack Their Own Travel Bags

Give your children a bit of control in the moving process. Give them each one travel bag they can fill with their own activities for the journey. This allows them to feel more in control during the change, and it helps to ensure they’ll focus on their activities throughout the trip.

  • Audiobooks and Movies

Visual and audio entertainment are great ways to distract your children during a move. Let your children listen to a fun audiobook or watch a movie to keep them entertained along the way.

  • Play Games

Moving with children gives you a great opportunity to play lots of fun games throughout your trip. Try and get your children interactive with the process itself. From playing a game of “I Spy” to spotting different car colors or models, you can play all sorts of travel related games during your trip. You will be amazed how much this helps to pass the time.

  • Take Fun Stops Along the Way

Remember that your moving process is more than just the end point – it’s about the journey too! Make your trip even better by enjoying the ride with fun stops along the way. These will help make travel time more enjoyable for everyone
