Kids New Year’s Resolution Printable

It’s hard to believe that 2011 is coming to a close.  It has been a year of high highs and low lows in our house.  I’m excited to ring in the new year this week.  In preparing for 2012, I created a new year resolution printable.  I had my kids fill out their answers and we talked about setting goals and reflected on memories from this past year.

New Year Resolution for kids

My daughter was the most willing of my three kids to fill out the printable.  Her answers were funny and revealing.  She wants to learn how to build furniture in 2012?? DIY bloggers- HELP!!   And her biggest goal is to learn a lot of German???  What in the world??  My girl is not afraid to stand out…..

New Year’s Resolutions

Hi- I'm Mique (as in Mickey). I started 30days as an idea file a few years ago. After three years and hundreds of ideas, I now realize that I'll never check them all off my list. When I'm not creating, I love spending time with family and friends and long drives, especially if they end at the beach.

    mique your a genius. i love this idea. it’s perfect for someone like me who wants to record things like this but is too lazy/not creative enough to follow through. this way i can just whip this out each new years and voila! done! hope your christmas was fabulous and have the best new year!

    • Mique says

      Kara Jayne- I am not a genius. But I wanted the same thing- to be able to record my kids over the years. (and laugh at things like learning how to build furniture ;) My Christmas was wonderful. I LOVED your darling Christmas card you posted on FB- oh my! Your family is gorgeous. I hope your Christmas was the best! xo

    • Mique says

      Erin- she is a funny funny girl. In fairness, her Grandma is from Switzerland and speaks French and German in addition to English. But on my side we have Spanish speakers….so who knows why German is her preference. Happy New Year! xo

    • Mique says

      Thanks Danielle! And I agree- my daughter needs to check out Ana White. She inspires me. I’m excited for her to be at SNAP this April!!

  2. Jackie says

    Great idea! If your daughter wants to learn to build furniture have her check out, she does great stuff, has easy to follow tutorials and is really inspiring. It is a great place to start for simple and useful stuff. Enjoy 2012!

    Hi there, I love this idea. Just printed it out for the first grade class I volunteer in every week. I noticed a typo on the word Hightlights. Other than that I changed a couple of lines more appropriate for first graders. We are going to do these next week and put them on the bulletin board in the hall. Teacher is super excited. Thanks for sharing.

    • Mique says

      Hi Ami- yes I absolutely think you can do with with a 3 yr old. Their answers are always the funniest. 3-5 yr olds say the best things! Thanks for the pin. xoxo

    I cannot get the kid’s New Year’s printable to download. I LOVE this idea and will help me “watch them grow.” If you can email it to me, I would be so grateful! Happy New Year!

  5. Jody H says

    Thanks so much. I haven’t seen anything like this before, but I really like it and plan on having my kids fill it out.

  6. Money Saving Enthusiast says

    I can’t wait to print this. An official way to hit the refresh button on our lives and make it official. Putting it in writing makes you feel like you signed a contract. Resolutions are the law!;0) Good one. Bookmark status!

    Found this post on Pinterest today….LOVE IT! And thanks for the printable…our whole family will be doing this tomorrow…so glad I found you! Happy new year! -Stephanie

  8. says

    Oh, how I love Pinterest! I found this printable via a pinboard and I’m so glad I did.

    I’m a homeschooling mom and this will fit perfectly with some of our New Year’s activities.

    Thank you!

  9. Trisha says

    Thank you! We used these last night and had a really great conversation with our 4 kids, ages 5-12. We learned a lot about them and they learned a few things about mom and dad! Thanks for sharing this!

  10. says

    Great idea…. I’m going to borrow it and make my own with the Canadian spelling of Favourite for my Sparks (Girl Guide) group tomorrow.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  11. says

    Just used your printable as one of the last mini-projects for the kids to complete before heading back to school after the Christmas season. Thanks for sharing your talent and ideas. Happy New Year to you and your family!

  12. says

    Thank you for sharing this! I look forward to the granddaughters spending the night and we will fill this out together! I can just imagine all the chattering and remembering the older two will be doing at the table! It will then go into their scrapbooks!
    Thanks again!

  13. says

    This is so cool! Thanks for sharing! I am going to try to have my husband fill it in (I think I have a bigger chance that he might fill in the kid version rather than the adult ;))!

  14. says

    Hello, I am a teacher and I found your brilliant “what a year it’s been” whilst trawling the internet. I wondered if you would give me permission to make my own version, changing the spelling of favourite and use it will my class here in the UK. I will make sure you are identified as the original designer.

    I would like to display it on my class blog found here

    Many thanks,

    Lisa Warner

    Hello, Thank you for sharing your fab New Year’s Resolution sheet for kids. I wonder if I can have permission to use it in my class. I teach in the UK so wondered if I could alter it to change the spelling of “favourite” Obviously I would give credit to you if you allowed me to post photos of the work on my class blog. Regards.

  16. Erin says

    I am so excited to print the resolutions! When I click on the 2013 version it brings me back to the same page. Just wanted to see what I am doing wrong…..

  17. says

    Thanks for making this available. We used it in our family on New Year’s Day and it was a great success. We had a nice time as a family together, hearing what each of the children wrote and sharing great memories of last year, as well as goals for the coming year. I posted a link to this post on my blog.

    Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an really long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up.
    Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again.
    Regardless, just wanted to say excellent blog!

  1. [...] This is a fun-looking project that for younger kids you can fill out and stuff in their baby book for future enjoyment, and for older kids, help (or let!) them fill it out based on what they remember of 2011 and what they want for 2012.   I think I might do something like this for Little Miss (and soon her sister, Miss Bennett!) every year.  Now if I could just get going on her second year yearbook before the baby arrives and I am TWO scrapbooks behind… [...]

  2. [...] I decided to make our New-Year’s-resolution-making a family event.  I found a great (free) printable to use as a guide and we set to work [...]
