New Year’s the Write Way

One of my favorite ideas for celebrating New Year’s is from Belgium where children are encouraged to decorate cards and write notes to their parents and godparents.

In Belgium, as in many other parts of the world, the new year also has religious significance.

It’s a wonderful time to reflect on the past and consider the future (while improving kids’ spelling, handwriting, and other skills!).

And if it’s good enough for the kids, it should be good enough for the parents.

If you’re still fortunate enough to have your parents and godparents living, parents should also consider joining in the fun.

It’s a relaxing, creative activity that may just put you in the right frame of mind for the new year while reminding some very important people of the wonderful role they may have played in your life.

No parents or godparents? Consider writing to a teacher or other mentor who had a positive impact on you.
