A printable New Year's Resolutions sheet for kids



Hi friends! It is SO good to be back here after taking what was initially an unintended blog break, that morphed into a much-needed and enjoyed sabbatical! This is one of my favorite times of the year, much like the beginning of the school year--a chance to start fresh, reflect, set new goals, and buy a new calendar and journal, of course!

We've been talking a lot about resolutions at the dinner table--just two days ago my kids learned that they are not, in fact called revolutions--though it might be interesting to start a few of those. Each night it seems like there's a new round of "I want to's..." shared at the table, so tomorrow I'm going to get the kids to put pen to paper and write down some of their thoughts.

Just tonight, Mary told us her resolutions were to Learn more wacky tricks. Improve her British accent. And work on better comebacks for her older sister. All admirable things--especially that british accent--but I'll be curious to see what happens on paper tomorrow. 

Like the worksheet we fill out at the beginning of every school year, I feel like these are precious little time capsules of my children's lives. They are a snapshot of what's important to them, where they are, and where they want to go. 

I will most likely follow suit. I have several resolutions swirling around in my head, but think I need to put them down on paper before we turn the page on a new year. 

I'm sharing our blank resolutions worksheet with all of you, too. There's room to write in your own prompts or let your kids come up with their own--what we will be doing is above. Simply click on the first worksheet image to download a pdf copy! 

And that beautiful Anne Frank's definitely a good thought to start off 2014.

What a great idea Molly... I like how you expand the mind with places to visit and foods to try. When my children were younger I had them make a resolution for their body , soul and spirit. Then I would tape it near their beds.... While we all didn't reach our goal all the time we did more than if we didn't set the goal...
may God bless you in 2014 and beyond!

Hello and happy new years! I love this worksheet and am trying to download and print out, but for some reason it comes up blank. Anything else I can do. Would love to give it to my kiddos for our 1st day back to school tomorrow.

Your download link isn't working. Here's the right link for the top one - the URL is just slightly messed up:
Will you share the link for the second one, too?
