I don’t remember the first year I posted one of these (2011 maybe?), but I do remember a kind reader asking me if I had one last year, and I didn’t! (Oh, the guilt!) New Year’s celebrations can be fun for the whole family as we look back on the past year and look forward to goals and plans for 2016. You can download this free printable for the kids to fill out. Stash them away in a safe place, or keep them in a time capsule along with a few of your favorite things to open up next year!
If you’re an adrenaline junkie and can get it together in a day (nothing like the last minute!), I love these New Year’s Eve Countdown Bags from Hoosier Homemade. Enjoy!
(PS ~ My year in blog stats email came yesterday. Nineteen posts in 2015. Pitiful! I used to write more than that in a month! No promises, but gosh I miss this place. “Stop” is my word of the year and I’m hoping its reminders will help me get back to my favorite things and GO.)
What are your plans for ringing in the New Year? We haven’t even made any yet, but I owe my 8yo a clothes shopping trip, so we might do that tomorrow. Then we’ll likely fix some fun food, play some games, maybe watch a movie, and call it a night (likely with extra kids at the house)! I also have an essential oils class to get written and published before Friday. Here goes!
