New Year, New Skills: New Year Resolutions for Kids
Now that 2022 is finally here, the new year is the best time for children to put their new year's resolutions into action - whether it be taking up some new skills or finding new hobbies to do. Looking for new years resolutions for kids inspiration? Check out some suggestions below!
Learn a new language
Experts believe that kids who learn a language before their teenage years are more likely than older learners to have a native grasp as well as a better understanding of the rules of language (an ability that disappears by adulthood).
Our ZooBooKoo educational cube books are available in Polish, French, German, Romanian and Czech. Not only that but each cube book is packed with different activities. Kids can learn a new language whilst also brushing up on their numeracy, science, and even football knowledge.
No more hiding vegetables in meals! Getting children to try new food can be challenging, but this is where our healthy play food comes in. Our Healthy Cutting Veg and Healthy Salad Set helps kids get acquainted with trying new healthy foods.
Our wooden play food helps little ones learn about the importance of a balanced, healthy diet, where our food comes from, and how meals are prepared. Alongside pretend play, getting children to prepare real vegetables with you at mealtimes builds an even greater understanding.
Playing in the fresh air has many benefits - it develops a sense of self-confidence, freedom and well-being, burns energy, and develops good physical fitness. A great way of getting from A to B outside is with Didiscoot.
Available in pink and blue, the lean-to-steer design of this kids scooter makes it easy to ride. With no batteries or pedals needed, Didiscoot has an adjustable handlebar height to cater for all ages - it can easily be passed through different aged siblings. Didiscoot is perfect for journeys to and from school, as well as fun adventures at the weekend.
We also have our balance bike for young riders to enjoy outside. Available in fiery red or ice blue, these sturdy wooden balance bikes have a padded adjustable set, durable solid tyres and easy-grip handlebars. Kids only need to push forwards to get moving!
Keeping bedrooms of little rascals tidy can feel like a never-ending task... so we've got a few tricks up our sleeve to help! Make tidying fun by giving children their own Cleaning Set. Includes a mop, broom, dustpan and brush with a handy wooden stand to keep them all in one place.
Pretend play with a cleaning set helps kids develop a sense of responsibility, confidence and control, whilst also enticing them with real tidying up. For a quick tidy up after playtime, our Toy Chest also helps keep areas clutter-free. The soft-close lid is safe for little fingers to open and close and slots on the side help with easy lifting.
Brush teeth twice a day
A new year resolution for young children, brushing their teeth doesn't have to be boring thanks to our Owl Toothbrush Timers. Tots can learn about the importance of healthy teeth and a thorough brushing routine. Each timer runs for three minutes, leaving plenty of time for brushing. The owls also come with a safe place to store toothbrushes.
New artistic hobby
Kids who enjoy being creative can get to grips with lacing. With four Lacing by Numbers themes to choose from, little fingers simply need to thread the laces through the holes, following the numbers as they go. Once the lace has threaded through all the holes, a picture appears.
Older children may want to hone their drawing skills. Tiger Tribe's range of How to Draw activity sets teach kids the fundamentals of drawing various animals and objects. Each kids drawing set comes with easy instructions and diagrams as well as a compact storage box with two drawers to keep stationery safe.
