Moving into a new home is an exciting time for your family. Take advantage of this new chapter in your life to create new family traditions. Here are some lovely traditions to help your family break in your new home:

Food is comforting. Eating a first meal as a family in your new kitchen can help establish familiarity and routine. Whether it’s preparing a family favorite dish, baking brownies, trying a new recipe, or even ordering takeout. Eating together as a family is a great way to discuss your feelings (excitement, nostalgia, etc.) It also helps make a house feel like home.

Finding a plant together as a family to put in a new home represents growth and new beginnings. This tradition brings new energy and beauty to the home. As the plant grows in its new space so does your family.

Put on your kid’s favorite tunes and have a dance party to break in the new house. Bonus: dance in every room if you want to let out some energy before bedtime. Each family member can choose a new song for each room. This brings energy and excitement to the new house. It also creates fun memories!

Let your kids choose the paint color in their rooms if possible. This helps your kids make their mark on their space and lets their personalities shine. Lifetime Moving Co can help your kids unpack their items first, so they have a comfortable space.

Take a family picture on moving day. Frame the picture and hang it in a central location in the new house. This is a bonding experience that reminds everyone that you’re embarking on this new journey as a family.

Lifetime Moving Co is here for you every step of the way. Let us know if you need help incorporating any of these traditions into your move day. We always love a good dance party 😊
