Moving Countdown for Kids

As I've mentioned many times in the last month, our family is getting ready for a move.  Every time, I pack a box, the kids ask me if "we're moving right now."  They really don't want the moving day to be a surprise.  To help them countdown to the big day, I've made a series of 2-D boxes.  Each box has an activity on it that is related to moving, packing, or saying good-bye.  There are 21 printed activities and 1 blank box for families to write in their own special idea.

I'm planning on choosing 7-10 "boxes" for my kids (once we learn our moving date).  I'm going to tape them on our wall in a line, turned over so the activity is a surprise.  Every day, we'll turn over a box and do the activity.  The boxes say things like "decorate a box" or "take a picture of your room."  All 21 activities are easy, child-focused, and free.  When the kids turn over the last box, it will be moving day!

As always, I'm offering this printable for free.  You can download it here.
