New Year’s Eve should be fun for adults AND kids
New Years Eve is such a fun time for celebrating and there’s no reason for kids to miss out on the fun! This free New Year’s Eve printable for kids is a great way to include your kids in the festivities and also reflect on the year that’s passed.
I love fill-in-the-blank printables like this because it’s so fun (and often hysterical) to see what the kids come up with.
What’s really special is seeing an entire year from a kid’s perspective. On New Year’s Eve, the last day of an entire year, it’s very clear that parents and kids remember things in entirely different ways. So often, a parent’s “top memory” for the year is something a kid barely even remembers (and vice versa).
Do this New Years Eve Printable Every Year
This type of printable makes a great keepsakes, so don’t throw them away when you start cleaning up and organizing in January (like so many vow to do)! It’s so fun to look back on what the kids have written over a series of years.
If you have multiple kids, it’s cute to compare their different answers. It’s also fun (and heartwarming) to see how much more sophisticated your kids’ responses (and their illustrations) get over the years.
You should fill out a copy of this New Years Eve Printable WITH your Kids
The preciousness of what your kids comes up with is undeniable. Still, you should fill in a copy of this New Year’s Eve printable for yourself as well. Store them with your kids’ copies to look back on in the future.
Even if you’re not particularly interested in looking back on what you had to say, your kids will enjoy looking through them. Plus, they will enjoy you sitting down and completing the activity with them. So often, we oversee our kids doing these activities without acknowledging how much they want us to actually participate (and hey — this is WAY easier than “playing pretend”).
The free kids’ New Years Eve printable (available for download in our resource library) is for 2019, but don’t forget to check back here next year, because I’ll post an updated version for 2020 as well.
If you don’t already have access to our resource library (which hosts all of our printables/resources — meal plans, kid activities, etc.) you can do that by signing up here.
