Creativity 521 #83 - New Year Resolutions {Happy 2016!}

By A Happy Mum @A_Happy_Mum
So, we rang in the new year and although I foresee that 2016 will likely be a very busy, merry, noisy, crazy and topsy-turvy year for us at home, I'm also looking forward to the challenges, satisfaction, bliss and joy that it will bring. With the big girl starting primary school, the little one going for half day nursery and the baby who will be with me 24/7, I'm all apprehensive yet excited to know that I will be spending all my weekday afternoons with not one, not two but all three of my kids. *fingers crossed*
Anyway, to celebrate the start of a new year, I wanted the kids to sit down with me, reflect about the past year and have a think about our New Year resolutions. To make sure that we mean what we say and do our utmost to achieve our goals, we turned it into a craft session and wrote down our resolutions. Here's sharing what we did in this week's Creativity 521.

We used markers to add in details like eyelashes and tongue. To make it more apt for the occasion, we added party hats for the little people and used number sequins to stick '2016' on it.

I have to say that I was very proud that Angel managed to come up with her three resolutions and wrote them on her own too! I couldn't have come up with better resolutions for her.

While Ariel was not able to spell or write her own resolutions, she did sit down and together, we discussed and came up with these three resolutions for her. I sure hope she will try her best to keep her word!
