Moving can be a traumatic time in the life of any child. Leaving the home they’ve grown up in or have important memories of, to head off for something unknown, is always tricky. House showings can be particularly stressful. Turning your home selling process into an adventure takes a little planning and some creative solutions. Here are a few tips that have worked wonders with kids who are reluctant to move or just a bit sad about change.

1. Involve your children in house hunting. Show them what you are looking at online and take them along when you view potential new homes.  Allow them to be a part of the process.

2. Get a paint fan deck and let your children start looking at colors for their new room.

3. Go through catalogs like Pottery Barn Kids with your children and talk about what theme they might want to have in their new rooms. Get a spiral binder and have them tape tear sheets of ideas into  their new room  wish book.  If they’re old enough have them start a Pinterest board.

4. Discuss new bedding possibilities. Some kids will see the selection of new bedding as a big treat.

5. Help your kids create a photo album or a video diary of the house.

6. Start packing before you put the house on the market. Kids really don’t play with all of their toys. Have them select a few favorites then bring some boxes into the house specifically for your children to pack. They’ll feel like a part of the process and that will result in happier child. Have them decorate their boxes with stickers,markers and crayons. Children will be empowered not only when it is time to move but also when it’s time to unpack
