child-art

What are your New Year’s Resolutions? Help your children to learn more about what resolutions are–and create a few of their own! This easy holiday activity will get your kiddos thinking about their goals, objectives and more for the next year. And bonus, this New Year’s Day activity doubles as an awesome art project that your family can cherish for years to come.

Arts and Crafts Materials You’ll Need

  • Cardboard- Reuse the sides of an old cardboard box instead of buying new board
  • Scissors
  • A hole punch
  • Yarn
  • Crayons, pencils or markers
  • Tempera paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Glitter
  • 8×10-inch card stock paper

How-To Steps

  1. Discuss resolutions. Help your child to create a list of their New Year’s resolutions. Each resolution will become one page of the book.
  2. Give your child one piece of card stock paper for each resolution. They can use crayons, pencils or markers to draw a picture of the resolution. Add words–or if your child isn’t ready to write full sentences yet, stick with the drawings.
  3. Cut the cardboard to match the card stock paper.
  4. Your child can draw a New Year’s Picture on the front of the cardboard book cover. Encourage your little artist to get creative and draw whatever they feel the holiday means to them.
  5. Paint the picture with the temperas.
  6. Sprinkle festive glitter on the paint before it dries.
  7. Let the paint dry completely.
  8. Punch one hole one-inch down from the top of the left side of the cardboard cover and one one-inch up from the bottom. Repeat with another piece of cardboard to make a back for the book.
  9. Line the pages up with the cardboard and punch marching holes.
  10. Bind the book with the yarn.
  11. Write the holiday name, date and year on the back cover of the book.
