For all of us, both young and old, the start of a new year is a good time to think about things we want to accomplish or things that we could improve upon. That’s where New Year’s Resolutions come in.
Help your child think about their goals with this free printable New Year’s Resolutions activity sheet for kids. The sheet has room for four goals – each in a different category.
This is a great time to start a discussion with children about the importance of both reflection and of goal setting. Talk about areas where your child thinks they could improve, why they want to improve and steps they can take to reach their goal.
You can kick off the conversation by sharing some of your own goals or areas of improvement so they have an example to get them thinking.
