Fun New Year Kid Activity Chart

Updated on December 30, 2015
Source

A new year ushers with it fresh efforts and hopefully new beginnings! Children love activities as much as we do. Why not create an activity chart with the New Year? Maybe the simple crafting of an activity chart can shed some light on some hidden issues or release a few frustrations. A teacher once shared with me how much kids enjoyed planning their year after winter break. And, here is my suggestion for an activities agenda in the form of a colorful chart!

Basic questions can be tailored to fit whatever situations and below are a few:

1-Last year my favorites things about, my home, my friends, were:

2-Last year, the things I hated most about my home, my friends, were:

3-What I am scared to try and do next year:

4-Next year, I am most looking forward to:

5-I will never forget what happened last year because:

Hopefully this will prove to be a fun way to learn about what's troubling our children while helping them focus and process their feelings. Maybe 2016 is the year to have realistic goals without stressful New Year resolutions and maybe including the children in a plan of action is a good way to instill a sense of contentment with what we have! And, isn't content at the base of happiness?

We all have plenty to be thankful for! A simple activity chart with the kids might be the way to discuss all the blessings that we have and take for granted. Maybe the simple task of writing the blessings down will allow us to be happy with what we have and will instill in our children a sense of gratitude and a resolve to go after goals in a realistic way. Maybe we’ll stop trying to keep up with Joneses! And, maybe then we will be able to more tolerant of differences and more inclusive!


I think a New Year activity chart might

      I find creativity and ideas the heart and soul of who we are. If children can explore them at a young age think of what happens when they become adults. A way to guide children in the right direction and support. Thank you for helping children so they can learn to help themselves.
