UPDATE: This New Year’s resolution craft comes with an updated 2022 craft template.
If you’re looking for a New Year’s 2021 resolution craft, this one combines an easy craft (with boy and girl option) with a writing activity. Kids can write (and draw) about their resolution or goals for 2022. The New Years resolution craft includes 4 different options for the party hat, 4 different options for the mask as well as a noise maker, in case you chose not to use the mask.
The craft can be made with colored paper or kids can color the patterns. Or a combination of the two, like we did. We used colored paper for the face, hands, glasses and hair and we colored the hat and mask.
Here are the writing prompts included with the craft:
- My New year’s Resolution with and without drawing box (primary and single lined)
- My Goals For The New Year with and without drawing box (primary and single lined)
- My Goals For The New Year with four drawing boxes
This New Years resolution craft is great for preschoolers, kindergartners through 4th graders.

HOW TO MAKE A New Year’s 2022 CRAFT
The New Years resolution template comes with two versions:
1. home template – cut out the patterns and trace them on corresponding colored paper.
2. classroom template – print the pattern directly on colored paper and cut them out.
This way you can easily craft with just one or two kids as well as with a classroom full of students.
