Hero in Training - Relocation Resources for Children

Relocating your family is a challenging, exciting and busy time. We have developed the Hero in Training Activity Book, for children ages 6-8, to keep your kids occupied as you prepare for the move, travel, and settle your new home.

Hero in Training

Discover activities that will help your child prepare for the move, learn about making new friends, build their confidence, get excited about their new home, and manage their emotions through this life-changing process. Skills for life! 

To understand how these activities build life skills, look at the legend on page 3 of the activity book. Match the relevant life skills icon in the legend to the icon at the top of each activity page. Once your child has completed the book, check in with them to see what they’ve learned. The final pages of the book guide you and your child through this process. 

Parents are encouraged to join our fan club to receive helpful tools and resources, alongside with receiving a welcome gift package from Bobbi and Peri (limited amounts available).
