It’s that time of the year again! Many of us reflect over the year gone by, and make new resolutions to help improve ourselves and the quality of our lives. What better way to teach our children the value of continued growth and learning than through new year crafts for kids?
Helping your little learner to make and keep resolutions should be upbeat and fun. Below you’ll find some creative and easy ways to teach your child the power of resolutions and the ideal of personal growth and improvement.
Perfect for the littlest of learners, this seasonal calendar will help your child understand the seasons throughout the year, while learning the value of planning and keeping long-term goals.
When finished, hang this calendar in your child’s room and refer to it often. Feel free to create a special place on your child’s door, wall, or cork board for their New Year’s resolutions. Encourage them to decorate the surrounding space with new year coloring pages to keep the area designated for their resolutions.
Check off each resolution that has been completed, and encourage your child to continue their good deeds throughout the year!
It’s important to instill in children the importance of giving back to the community, or just helping others in our daily lives. This New Year’s craft will inspire your children to think about how they can help those around them every month of the year!
Attach the flower with the picture to the popsicle stick and put it back in the pot. Repeat this each month until next year!
By the end of the year, your child will end up with 12 wonderful memories of the tasks they completed over the year, creating a veritable garden of good deeds!
While New Year’s Day is a great time of the year to stop and reflect over the past, it’s also an awesome time for new beginnings and traditions. Use this new year to teach your child the importance of continued growth and learning, while fostering a love for service to others and an appreciation for goal-setting.
Better yet, your child will have a blast working on these fun holiday crafts for kids, and will be inspired to get started on their new year goals!
