I’m a homeschool mama to four. To be honest I look to fit writing into our day any which way I can. For my younger kids that sometimes comes in the form of journal pages like this free New Year’s printable.
Prompts that inspire creative thinking and plenty of spots to doodle and draw make these New Year’s printables easy for kids to jump right into!
Are you a “resolutions” person? Do you start each year with a whirlwind of “I’m gonna, I wills, and I mights?”
I guess I’ve always been too practical to think that a number on the calendar is really cause to get too excited. For me resolutions happen when inspiration strikes. Excitement and resolve are hard to order up on time.
As a grown up, kinda’ tired mama, however, I look for new beginning wherever I might find them!
Resolutions are fun. It’s a good opportunity to talk about goals, both long term and short term, with your kiddo. These New Year’s printables make that fun and easy!
But the reminiscing….
As unenthusiastic as I may be about resolutions I make up for it with my love of recording what has already happened. A journal, a photobook, a stack of old birthday cards; those things will get me every time.
While I don’t really care to save spelling tests and papers full of math facts the papers that show a snapshot of who my kid really is I will keep forever and ever.
The silly & the serious….
I want to look back and giggle at their predictions. For instance the arrival of baby sibling Miss Nine predicted is highly unlikely. But man, if a sister could be delivered to her, how happy she would be!
I love that, although they may little, kids are so perfectly aware of who they are and what’s important to them. And that shines through in writing about themselves and their families.
What they love, what they’re good at, what feeds them is already there. They came that way.
