Do a Countdown
A good way to do this is to mark on the calendar the big day and X out each day till Moving Day.

Tell a Story
Books are a good way to start a conversation with your kids. Pick a book to read to your kids and then talk about it. There are several books for kids about Moving.
Here are a few that can be easily purchased on Amazon;
We’re Moving by Heather Maisner
The Berenstain Bears’ Moving Day by Stan & Jan Berenstain
Moving House (Usborne First Experiences) by Anne Civardi.

Personalize Boxes
Have your kids make labels for their own boxes and “stuff”. This can be a fun project and will help them to identify what is theirs when you get to the new house.

Being upfront with your kids about the move. Involving them as much as possible will make the transition easier and fun for them.
