Ring in the New Year with a Freebie!

My 7 year old toasting with everyone on New Year’s Eve with chocolate milk in a champagne flute. This was her first year making it all the way to midnight!

With the beginning of a brand new year just getting started, it’s a great time to reflect on the year that’s passed. I know I love to sit down with a notebook and remind myself of my favorite memories, goals met, funny moments with the kids I don’t want to forget and of course a book log of all the amazing literature my children and I read over the course of the year.

I like to sit down and chat with my children about what they’ve accomplished and what they’re looking forward to in the New Year. It’s a great time to reflect, but also to make goals. I’m not a fan of resolutions, because they are often too open ended and quick to be forgotten. Instead, I like to set realistic goals. For example, rather than say I’m going to lose weight and exercise more, I’ll set a goal that I’ll eat more vegetables and less sweets and set a fitness goal like walk one mile 3-4 mornings a week. This works the same way for our children – help them to set a goal to work towards or choose a skill to focus on and they’ll be able to make it happen.

Of course, if your kid are anything like mine, it can be hard to get them to talk about things like goals and plans for the new year. That’s why I created this printable freebie to help you and your child reflect on 2016 and think about the new year ahead.
