The New Year is always a time for new wishes and resolutions. For looking back at the previous year, and looking forward to the new one with excitement. Get children involved in this feeling by making some fun wishing wands for them to share their wishes and hopes for the new year.

  • Wishing wand from Nurture Store
  • Wishing Spin Drums from No Time for Flashcards
  • Make Paper Fortune Cookies like these from Unsophisticook. Although for Chinese New Year, these could work at any New Year and would be fun to write lots of good wishes then see which one each person gets.
