We prepared all the children for the coming of the new baby, but the younger children needed to be separated. I had my 5 yr old daughter with my 4 yr old son. I felt it time for change and put all the girls together despite the age difference, My 5 yr old is old enough to know now not to touch her bigger sisters things. The boys are together now. My 2 yr old was rooming with ummie and abi and now it’s time to make room for baby!
In making the transistion easy I had the kids all do a craft, a simple on at that. I wanted to include them all. Although I know that this one is a bit elementary for my older girls, I just wanted to let my 5 yr old think that she was a big girl and her sisters played along by humoring both me and my 5 yr old in this one.
I had a pajama coloring page. They were able to decorate their pajamas any way they wanted. Then I made a name plate for each one and we Taped it to their bedroom door so anyone who visits can see that the girls all share their room.
Here are the pics:
This one belongs to my 5 yr old.
This one is my 14 yr olds
This one is my 12 yr olds
I just thought I would share because they are so cute! I will miss when they are all grown up!!
I had the boys color in cars, but I am in the process of changing their room over to dinosaur theme and plan on having dinos on the front of their bedroom door. I will post when they are done.
Please share your ideas, I would love to see how you all handle different age leveled children and if they have to share rooms with one another.
