If you need some craft to do with your kid before they go back to school, then this is for you! It’s a fun New Year’s Eve tradition, and it helps everyone start thinking of the next year. It helps kids practice art and writing. It’s the resolution paper hats.
Fun pens, markers, glitter, etc.
1. Fold a newspaper for everyone in your family. Here’s a nice refresher.
This craft is easily customized for any age. I glued feathers and sequins on mine and colored it with crayons. (Don’t laugh, but I totally forgot the year and wrote 2012!)
Henry got to practice his coloring. Older kids can practice their writing and spelling besides coloring. You can get some really fun art materials for your kids to play with.
Henry enjoys coloring just as much as he enjoys chewing on crayon boxes.
