new year's resolution handprint craft for kids

The  Free Kids Crafts Team has made a resolution to bring you even more fun crafts this year starting NOW with this fun Handprint New Year’s Resolution craft. We won’t give you a list of things to do but starting by helping Mom and Dad in simple ways like cheerfully doing homework and chores would be a good start.


The ancient Babylonians are said to have been the first people to make New Year’s resolutions, some 4,000 years ago. They were also the first to hold recorded celebrations in honor of the new year—though for them the year began not in January but in mid-March, when the crops were planted.
