You have a few boxes left stacked around your new home, the family has their bedrooms ready to go, and you are just starting to settle into your new home. The key for families to reconnect once they move is to take some time and acknowledge that you have a new home, and it may even be in an unfamiliar location. So, how can you reconnect after a move? We have a few ideas that you can use for everyone to have some fun and maybe even create a few new traditions that you will carry on for years to come!
Have a Craft Night
For those who have the ability to craft, then turning a night into a craft night for the entire family can be a great way to just gather and de-stress after the move. And you will find that if you have young kids, having a craft night can help you to talk more with the kids, help put those fears that they may have to rest, and it gives your kids a chance to simply talk to you while focusing on doing another task. What can you make on this craft night? Whatever you want! Check out Pinterest for ideas, or purchase a craft kit online that is meant for the entire family!
Start a Movie Night
While you may not be able to do a lot of talking during a movie night, it can be a great way to just gather and spend some time together! You will find that you can choose a movie that you will all love. If you have young kids, this is a great time to show the movies that you had loved when you were their age! Get some popcorn, sodas, candy, and all the fixings so that you can sit together and watch a movie in your new home together.
Have a Board Game Night
There are tons of board games out there that are geared from little tots to adults in age. You will find that having a board game night is going to be a ton of fun and something that you can easily put into your weekly routine. And if you have older kids, then you are going to find that those murder mystery games that are meant to be like your own little “Clue” at home could be a huge hit!
Reconnecting after a move is a must. Take this time to have some fun, talk, and find out where everyone’s head is at as they are learning a new town, a new home, and the like. And remember, if you are gearing up for a move, then be sure to contact Quality Moving & Storage for all your moving needs.
