The New Year is here, and we're all happy to see it! At this month's live story time, we'll attend a New Year's Eve parade and learn about how we can use New Year's Resolutions to be more kind.
For our craft, we'll be making our own kindness resolutions for the New Year.
To participate in the craft, you'll need your grown-up and these supplies:
- Paper (index cards, notebook paper, printer paper, post-it notes without the sticky, anything you can write on!
- Something to write with (markers, pencils, pens, etc.)
- Something to hold your booklet together with: a paperclip, a binder clip, ribbon, string, or maybe even a jar to put them in
We'll think of some together, but you can add as many of your own as you'd like. Feel free to write in short sentences or draw pictures for your resolutions. When you're done, pull one out every day, week, or month to show more kindness in 2021.
Before our event, enjoy these books and eSources to learn more about New Year's Celebrations around the world.
