For the past week, we’ve been all about New Year’s Eve here at Hello Little One and one thing we’ve been really talking about is how to make it enjoyable for the kids too. As part of our kid-friendly New Year’s Eve party, I’m having all the kids fill out these quick letters, talking about where they are now and where they expect to be in the future. Sub-par organizational skills notwithstanding, I plan to stash the finished letters away somewhere safe so we can pull them out way down the road to read together. My goal is to do this with them every year so they get a visual timeline of how their handwriting, goals, passions and hopes have changed throughout their entire childhood. The littlest ones can just color in the lines or dictate their answers, and the bigger ones will have fun filling theirs out all by themselves.
Here’s our New Year’s letter for the kids, and click this link here if you’d like to download a copy for yourself. Hope you all have a safe and enjoyable New Year’s and a great beginning to 2012!
