This week we have been concentrating on our thoughts, dreams, feelings and goals by planning our resolutions and intentions for the New Year. This is a great activity for all the family.
New Year Resolutions for Kids
We work on resolutions being an ongoing process for the whole year and they are not something we can fail at within three day! So we sat and discussed the things that we would like to improve in 2015, but also the things that we do well and want to continue.
To start with I printed out 2015 in a hollow font so we could each pick a number to fill in. There are four of us, so this worked out perfectly.
We picked up our fab colouring pens from Faber Castell and made them as colourful and appeal as we could. If we are going to set our intentions for 2015 we wanted to make them as visually appealing as possible.
I love some of the things that the boys chose. Maxi’s included be unique, be calmer, be gracious, help my brother and have fun.
I want to be more mindful, smile more, get up earlier, be genuine, keep learning and simplify life.
Mini’s intentions are great including sing quieter, rush less, be brave, write more and be more dog!
Oh and the Husbeast, well “be grouchy with style” says it all.
It was a really fun, if not a little challenging exercise for all of us. We helped each other and one thing that I noticed was that the boys were really positive and encouraging with each other. They seem to champion each other a lot, which makes me a rather proud mum.
