Welcome To Town Printable Packet

I’ve made three big moves in my life, and all three have been across the country, thousands of miles from the place before. I’ll never forget the days we moved into each town–feeling nervous, excited, and overwhelmed  at the prospect of trying to figure everything out, from stores and parks to libraries, dentists, doctors and more.  Starting from scratch is hard, no matter why or where you’re moving! In response to how I felt when I moved, I created this {Welcome To Town} printable to help others in the same situation.

New Neighbor Gift #todaysmama

I created this fun and easy “welcome to town” survival guide that’s perfect to give to a new friend or neighbor that’s just moved to town. It’s small and compact, and can easily tuck into a purse or diaper bag for easy reference. You can fill them in on all your favorite places in town…groceries, restaurants, libraries, parks, farmers markets, outdoor activities, hair salons, and all the other tidbits that would be so helpful right from the start. Tie this book onto a bag of treats with a ribbon, and you’ve got a wonderful gift that anyone would appreciate.

I included a cover page and 5 information cards: food, services, shopping, things to do, and a blank one for favorites. Favorites in the town I moved from recently would include blueberry patches, baseball games, cider mills, the farmer’s market, and city forest.  Now I would add Houston Zoo, Spring Creek Nature Center, Fountains at Waterway Square, P-6 Farms (picking blackberries is a family favorite!), Brazos Bend State Park–you can add anything you love about where you live and want to share with them.

SUPPLIES:
  • white cardstock
  • plastic name badge holders (2.5 x 3.3)
  • book ring
  • ribbon
DIRECTIONS:

Print the pdf file (download below) and cut out the pages with a paper trimmer. Fill in the blanks with the information you’d like to share. Slide the pages into the name badge holders, and put them on to the book ring. Tie a few pieces of ribbon on the ring, and ta-da, you’re done!
