Preparing to move into a new home can be a very stressful and chaotic period of your life. Packing up your belongings is a very time consuming and tiresome process, which is why we have created these handy labels to stick on your packing boxes. They will hopefully make the unpacking process a bit easier for you as they have been colour coded by room and you are able to add the contents of the boxes on it too!

Moving is often a stressful time for everyone involved, and when you’re moving with children you’ll have to consider that it can be a lonely time as well. It can be difficult for a child to feel at home in a new environment without the familiar faces of their friends around and breaking into new social groups and relationships can be an intimidating prospect.

Before the move it is a good idea for both you and your children to pack 'survival bags'. Ask your children to decide which three items they would take on a desert island and pack these in a bag. This is not only a fun way to involve your child in the packing process but also provides a sense of security as depending on their age they will choose their favourite things. Make sure your children have toys, which can be easily accessed to keep them entertained.
