Set Goals

Set Goals

Talk with your child about goals that you can work towards together for the new year.  Write the goal on a sheet of construction paper and draw a smiley face (or add a sticker) each time you complete your task.  Example goals: Read a book before bedtime, eat healthy snacks, active play for 30 minutes a day.

 

Happy New Year! (Tune: Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes)

There ’s a new year on the way,

On the way!

There ’s a new year on the way,

On the way!

Let ’s celebrate the year and

give a cheer!

(Say, “Hooray!”)

There ’s a new year on the way,

On the way!

Dance Party!

Have your child select their favorite music and clear a spot in the house to start dancing in the new year.  Freestyle or create a special family dance to become all the craze for next year.
