Handprint New Year’s Resolutions to Welcome the New Year


If your little ones are staying up until midnight, they’ll need some craft projects to keep them busy and entertained until New Year arrives. Quick, easy and fun for the kids, this project will help make the hours go by peacefully as the kids anxiously wait to wish in the New Year.

Handprint New Year’s Resolutions

Have your kids make their own resolutions (I will fix my bed every day, I will not fight with my sister, I will keep my toys after playing). Encourage them to remember and stick to their New Year’s resolution by creating this resolutions craft. Once you’re done, stick it on the fridge where everyone can see it. This will serve as a daily reminder of their promise to do better this year.

This craft project is a great way to capture your kid’s moment in time. Not only will you have a record of the size of their hand, you’ll also have a snapshot of what is important to them at this age.


Craft foam, bright color

Construction paper


Colored markers or crayons

Magnetic strip



  • Trace and cut a hand out of the craft foam. Repeat until you have about 6 or 7 hands.

  • In a construction paper, cut out a circle and write the words “My Resolutions” on it.

  • In a separate construction paper, cut out small rectangles. Make sure that they are small enough to fit inside the palm of the hand.

  • List down your resolutions on the rectangles and glue it to the palm of the foam hand.

  • Glue the hands together to form a circle. Make sure that the paper labeled as “My Resolutions is at the center.

  • Decorate it to make it more attractive.

  • Glue the magnetic strap at the back of the circle and stick it on the fridge.

Happy New Year and good luck with those resolutions!
