Packing Time! Time to Sort Your Stuff!
Moving is a good time to get rid of things you don't want anymore, which will also make room for new things you might get in the future! Go through your all toys and games and group them into three piles:
First Pile: Things you want to take with you to the new home.
Second Pile: Things to toss out (broken toys and games with missing pieces).
Third Pile: Things you don't want but could be given away to other kids.
Ask: "What Else"!
Ask your parents what else can you do to help with all the sorting and packing that needs to be done. They will appreciate your help!
Mark Your Stuff as "Yours"!
Design your own personal "seal" for marking your boxes as YOUR property! As your belongings are packed, draw your "seal" on the outside of each box. Be creative! You can create your own work of art to mark your belongings.
Get Ready for Your First Night!
Your first night in your new home is very special. Be sure to have your favorite pajamas, your trust blanket or stuffed toy, or your favorite book packed away in your suitcase or backpack. This will be your very own piece that you'll personally be in charge of to take with you to your new place to get ready for your first night in your new home!
Don't Forget to Bring Some Entertainment!
Don't forget to take some things for you to do on the airplane or in the car on the way to the new home, such as books, video games, action figures, or crayons and paper.
