Children can help with their room by decorating a moving box with stickers and markers; then they can put into their box their own special items. Now they can watch their box move to their new room!

If your move is a great distance away take roller blades or skate board for children to use at rest stops. This uses some of that energy!

Small children enjoy a small box sealed up containing unusual items. Cut a hole in the side of the box large enough for their hand to fit and let them try to figure out the items.
