This activity started out as a vision board for me. I was mucking around drawing and writing some hopes and dreams and ideas I had for the year ahead when my kid noticed and wanted to do on too.
My 12 year old twins took up the idea and ran with it, filling their paper with all kinds of ideas and dreams, but it was harder for my smallest boy to think so abstractly, and even hard for my eight year old to look ahead like that. So I simplified the idea a little and put together a simple drawing prompt to get them started.
With a little direction the boys could now fill each bubble with a drawing of something they hoped, dreamed or wished for.
The boys included thing like going to swimming lessons, winning more Angry Birds, conquering the four gap monkey bar swing, reading the rest of the Harry Potter books, learning more songs on the piano, and eating more tacos.
And we all included going on an plane as we’ve got plans for a holiday this year!
This is a fun, easy, activity for the kids to do on New Years Eve.
Make sure you save their drawings so you can get them out next New Years Eve and see whether their dreams came true and how their hopes and wishes have changed.
