HAPPY NEW YEAR

 

LITTLE HOLIDAY HAT
Find a paper or plastic-foam cup for your child to use as a hat base. Have him turn the cup upside down and decorate it by gluing on such materials as paper scraps, stickers, and ribbons. Give him a cotton ball or self-stick bow to glue onto the top of his hat.
Then poke holes on opposite sides of the hat and attach pieces of yarn for tying under your child's chin.

 
NEW YEAR'S WISHES

Instead of making New Year's resolutions, try this. With your child, think of something to wish for and something to learn in the coming year. Help your child write down her thoughts, or let her draw pictures to illustrate them. Make your list on paper, too. Then slip your lists into envelopes and store them with your holiday decorations to read at the end of the year.
 

OLD AND NEW
Talk with your child about how New Year's is the time to say goodbye to the old year and hello to the new one. Review the name of the old year and talk about the New Year's name. Then ask your child to look for such things as an old toy and a new toy, an old pair of shoes and a new pair, an old book and a new book. Have him place the items in separate baskets, one for old items and one for new ones.
