New Year’s Resolutions for Kids

Yet again the year is coming to an end. Help your kids reflect on resolutions for next year with this fun New Year’s Resolutions activity below.

This kids New Year’s Resolutions activity can be printed off in over 10 languages!

Recommended: New Years around the world


  1. Download the printable in your preferred language (link at the bottom of this post).
  2. Colour in the template.
  3. Come up with 12 resolutions for the new year.
  4. If your child can’t read yet, help them understand their list by making a small drawing that represents their resolutions alongside each phrase.
  5. Place the resolutions chart somewhere at home in your kid’s vision so you can revisit it together and tick it off as they complete each resolution. Tell them that they don’t have to be in order so they feel encouraged to do as many as they can.
  6. Remember to talk to your child during the year about what they set to do and you can tell them how it is not always possible to fulfil all of our goals and that is ok, because our lives change and we don’t always know what we will do next.
