How to Keep Kids Busy on Moving Day

How to Keep Kids Busy on Moving Day

Moving is an exciting yet challenging task you may experience at least once in your life. It doesn't really get any better when you add toddlers and kids to the equation - moving gets trickier by a factor of about 10. Not only will you have to do your best to accomplish everything without changing your daily routine but you also need to keep your kids entertained and safe when Singapore movers arrive.

Fortunately, with a little imagination and planning, you can keep your kids occupied while you pack and prevent them from getting seriously injured throughout the moving process. 

Get your kids involved

If hiring a babysitter or sending the kids next door isn't an option, you can assign tasks to them such as:

Doing so will not only save you a job but will also give them confidence and a sense of control over the changes that they are currently facing. 

Take your kids for a walk

If both parents or caregivers are moderating the move, invite a friend or a family member who can step away for a bit and take your kids for a walk. Taking them for a walk can be beneficial to get them out of the craziness of moving. 

Ask relatives/friends to look after your kids

Asking nearby relatives or friends will make moving easier and will enable you to focus on other things without worrying about your kid’s safety. If the weather permits, they can play outdoor games together or go for a walk. This will also give the kids an opportunity to properly say farewell to their friends and play with them one last time. 

Let them play outside 

If you have some safe outdoor space, outdoor activities are perfect for keeping your kids out of Singapore movers’ way. Give them a ball or they can play games such as hide-and-seek, the game of tags or let them play with your pet dog. You can let them play as many games just make sure to check the backyard's safety and have some rules if you leave them playing.

Set up an activity room

Create a moving day safe room for the kids to nap, play with their favourite toys (dolls, car miniatures) or even watch cartoons or movies. If your kids are old enough, playing computer games or reading books will keep them entertained for hours on end. Just make sure to notify your chosen movers Singapore that the room is off-limits since the kids are doing activities or playing inside to be entertained. You can also place a sign on the door too. 

With moving day's trickery and confusion, we hope you find these ideas useful and will set you on a path to having an exciting and smooth relocation process with your children. To make moving easier hire professional movers in Singapore through Wise Move.

Great staff, very patient, accommodating, and very professional. Team had the task to move the whole unit in 3 loaded tracks. Quality of work (packing, loading, unloading…) was high and reassuring. I’ll definitely hire them again for my next move.

A fantastic experience with Faith Relocation. The team was punctual and started to assess the work to be done promptly. They knew what to do and divide-and-conquer, to get things moving along. More importantly, the lady boss was around throughout the session, assisting and advising on the team what to do. She was helping to carry and push stuff as well!! *salutes* On the second trip, the team has some spare time while waiting for the truck to arrive and they were kind to help move the boxes to the respective rooms so as to minimise the work that we have to do. Not many movers will go the extra mile. Finally, they also help to repair the roller legs of my drawers, replacing the screws that were unsuitable. Overall this is a highly recommendable mover, with a great team and a lady boss that walks the talk!! Two thumbs up!
