How can I make moving easy for them?

We will be moving in exactly 2 weeks. How can I make the transition easy for our children (4 and 1). My 1 year old will have issues with having her own room. My four year old will love having his own room. I am planning on getting their rooms set up first so they have their familiar stuff around, but any other ideas would be great!

  • Kids are more resilient than you think. They are young enough that I think they will do much better than you are expecting. Now, if they were older, transition would be a little different.

  • I think at that age as long as they have all the same things and people around them they make that transistion easily. Just my personal experience and opinion.

  • Let them pick out new bedding. Let them have a say in decorating their new rooms.

  • At those ages I really wouldn't worry too much- make sure if they ahve a favorite toy. bear. pillow or blanket that you keep those out for them so they have them- otherwise it should be fine. Trust me- I've moved like 35 times...
    It gets harder on them as the get older
