At the end of the last few years I’ve made a couple of New Year’s Eve resolutions printables. Each year I get requests for it earlier and earlier to be updated. I know we haven’t gotten through Christmas yet but those that are ready to reflect on the year, this is for you! If you aren’t ready for this yet, bookmark it and tuck it away for a couple of weeks. I will have an adult version and other New Year’s Eve and New Year’s posts coming up soon!
This is a fun activity to do over winter break, for teachers to do with students at school (before the break or after coming back from break), with grandkids and more. If they are too young to write it down, you can interview them and ask them the questions to fill in their answers.
It’s always a mystery of what my kids will write down. Some things are so random and others very sweet. I love that I have several years of what they were excited about, accomplished, hoped to accomplish, etc. There’s just something about writing it all down that makes the goals, hopes, dreams and memories attainable.
I would have to agree with Jules on most of these – she worked hard on her first quarter in junior high. Organizing her notebook and getting straight A’s have been a big accomplishment. I’m super proud of her.

Happy New Year! Thanks for sharing such a great idea. Not only am I planning to use it with my class to help us create our first piece of display work for 2015, but I also used it to help me write y own end of year review. This is so well set out and makes sure you focus on the important things.
Thanks again for such a well crafted idea.

Thanks so much for sharing these! They are a tradition for our family now. Happy New Year!
Thanks! These have become a family tradition since I saw them on eighteen25 a few years back!
Thank you! So glad you had an updated version unlike other blogs I came across.
I just want to thank you for making a new printable for this year. We started using these last year and I pulled them out to read them today and they are so fun to see. So I’m excited to use them every year now. I just had to share, my 4 year old said last year the hardest thing last year was learning to drink his apple juice. I don’t know what that means, but it was so funny to read. So I’m grateful to you for making this so we can laugh at the silly things our kids say. :)

I have to say THANK YOU for posting these each year. We fill them in with friends and look back at our year. We have some good laughs!

Thank you! This is such a useful thing. I have printed out and set down with my kids to think about our year. Your reader from Russia.
I have been doing a much more concise version – best and worst of the preceding year; hope for the next year – of this since the early 1990’s. I keep it in my Christmas album, which is a collection of two-page spreads , one for each Christmas. But I like yours much better! My oldest grandkids are 8 and 9 and we are going to start using your printable to help them think through their thoughts and feelings, and document their highlights and likes. Thank you for so generously giving us a method to do this.
This is fantastic! Unfortunately, I can only find the printable version of the 2014 page linked above, not the 2015. Can you direct me where to find the 2015?
Thanks, and Happy New Year!
[email protected] I’m just a year ahead. Sorry, please ignore, and thankyou again!

Thank you so much! We have been using them for the past 3 years, my kids and nieces request it now every year. It’s such a great exercise, and they love to read back over the prior years’ worksheets.
Thanks so much Jill. That makes me so happy! Happy New Year!!
Love your printables. One of my New Year Resolutions is to make the holidays more handmade. Your blog is my inspiration, my new favorite.
Thanks for sharing these. They’re becoming treasures for our family!!!

Have you been dreaming up any New Year’s Resolutions this year? Do you usually follow through with them or do you start strong then give up halfway through? Would you like some extra help? This book will help you actually achieve your goals. Learn the power of goal setting so you can transform your life. Discover what’s holding you back and learn how to break through any obstacles that get in your way. You deserve to get what you want. Check out this book so you can reach your wildest dreams.
I think this is neat how children are learning the importance of writing goals early some adults haven’t even master this art yet.

Love these printables! I was looking for the perfect one for the kids this year, and you nailed it! Will be sharing this on my blog http://www.thepoptartdiaries.com and on The Poptart Diaries Facebook page!
Happy New Year!
I love this! Sometimes the year goes by so quickly, we forget all the wonderful things that happened along the way. What a fun way to share and track memories.
Thank you for keeping us on top of these traditions. I cherish these memories and would be so sad if I didn’t do them, but can’t ever remember to do them myself! ;)
I cant find the link to click on to print the ‘year in review’…can you help me!?
Hi . Your new year printable is really amazing. So apt to begin on a new note. I can’t figure out how to print it . Is it available for printing ???
Jenetta Penner says
I love these printables! It’ll be a fun activity for my kids – and myself too! Great way to preserve some great memories. :)
I’ve followed and used many of your gorgeous ideas and I think its about time I spoke up and said a huge thank you! I have been able to achieve so much more and have fun at the same time.
At the moment my son is enjoying this printable and adding it to his book of life file.
Thank you! I’ve been checking to see if you’d updated this years yet, so happy that you have! My 4 kids love filling these out every New Year and they are so fun to look back on :)
Loved the adult one for 2014 and can’t wait for the 2015 one! Thanks so much for doing this!
Jennifer S. says
My husband and I absolutely love this idea and look forward to starting a yearly tradition with it this year with our children. They change and grow so quickly this will be a good remembrance from year to year.
Just love it! This would be great for my nephews :) and I love the other printables too!

Wow! I love this Mique! Such a fun idea.
thank you so much for this!!!
Thank You for this!
A coupe of years ago we started a sort of time capsule…… a Pringles can covered in paper by my then 7yr old! Every year we’ve used your sheet after lunch on New Years day and written about the previous year.
Now we have a few sheets in there it’s quite fun to look back over the kids thoughts!
