What to do with Young Children During Showings

Congratulations! You put your home on the market and have successfully prepped for a showing. But, now what do you do with yourself and the kids? Here are some tried and true ideas for what to do during a showing!

Play dates: I tried to schedule playdates around showings so the kids would be entertained outside of the house. We had a fun activity to pass the time during the showing, and we could spend some time with friends.

Park (during summer/nice days)

Chick fil A/indoor playplace (rainy/cold days)

Library

Errands (Grocery shopping, post office, etc.) Although let’s be honest, this one is less than ideal. Errands with three (young) kids is inviting a disaster…

Car Movie Theater: the biggest hesitancy to do things with my kids is the sheer frustration of the bucking/unbuckling and jackets, hats, (times 3!) in the colder months. Something that worked well with minimal effort was to keep the kids buckled in and put a movie on the iPad/phone/device. The big kids are occupied and I bought myself a few minutes of relative quietness. I would just need to entertain the baby!

Hope this helps fuel some ideas for what to do during a showing! Do you have any suggestions of what worked for you? Share below!
