#4 2018 in Review

We love the start of a new year with the kids, don’t you? It is full of excitement for the year ahead, and wonderful memories of the year just gone. It is a perfect time to reflect with the children on the year that has just been, and we love getting sat down, and doing our Year in Review each year. It is a great New Year activity that we really think help the kids to look back and learn coming into the New Year.

Look back on the last year with this great FREE printable for you and the kids. Happy New Year! #newyears #kidsactivities #newyear

#5 2019 Printable Calendar

How about printing off our fabulous free printable 2019 calendar and working with the kids to add exciting days for them to look forward to next year. They could be birthdays, parties, holidays or days out as a family. Our fabulous printable calendar would make rather awesome posters to add to any kids’ bedroom wall. Did we say this is for the little ones – because the pictures are just too cute to give to just the kids, right?
