Using Games to keep the kids entertained during your move

Kids are usually the ones who look least influenced by the move but go through the hardest time of all members of the family. Keeping them entertained during the move so that they don’t have to be bored and stand around or possibly be in the way of your movers is something you should definitely make sure of. While you are going to have less problems if your children are teenagers or maybe even young adults who are capable of carrying their own load and be productive helpers themselves, little kids can easily make the move much more stressful than it already is. Whether you have babies, toddlers or kids that just started elementary school, you are going to have your hands full unless you have a babysitter or somebody else who has the time and motivation to watch and entertain them for the day.

If you are somebody who loves to improvise and can come up with an unlimited amount of games when they are needed then you certainly don’t need to waste too much thought on the kind of items that you should have ready for your move. Although, you could sure do with a ball or a piece of paper and some crayons. However, chances are that you can only come up with so many games from the top of your head. In that case, having all of the necessary game starters and helpers around will prove to be extremely helpful when you try to keep your kids busy and happy during the whole move.

Some of the easier games certainly involve a ball. By bringing a soccer or a tennis ball (preferably both) you have the first few games figured out for your kids. Whether they play by themselves outside in the yard or inside in one of the rooms that is already empty, balls can keep them happy for quite some time and may even serve as a great break activity for you or one of your workers. If you have multiple kids who all require entertainment, make sure that you have some board games around. If they are all busy playing the same game, you are going to have the least problems with kids running and interrupting the procedures. Video games are certainly also all time favourites for kids. Once they start playing on their Gameboy, Nintendo or Playstation, they will be in another world entirely. You won’t have to worry about a thing until the batteries die.

Although food can’t exactly be classified as games, keeping them happy and busy for at least a little while can be through food. As you and your movers need food also, order a pizza or have yummy sandwiches ready that you know your kids will enjoy. At least for as long as they’re eating they will be happy and quiet and stay out of the way so that you can finish all the work quickly.

If you still haven’t found the optimal combination of pass-time activities for your kids yet and you think that nobody can entertain them as well as you then there is certainly always the opportunity to higher your neighbourhood removal company.

I am writing to say I would recommend your Company to anybody. The guys from St George Removals were professional, arrived on time and did a fantastic job from beginning to end. They carefully moved all our stuff quickly and efficiently and made my experience a very smooth and stress free one. Thank you once again.


I would just like to say that I have had bad removalist experiences before but St George Removals have restored my opinion, they were actually on time well a bit early but that was a bonus for me, they never complained even though there was two flights of stairs, they did everything in about the exact time I thought it would take and they were extremely professional! Thanks guys for an awesome move I would definitely recommend your company to anyone who asks! Cheers
