Each year I like to sit down and evaluate what I’ve accomplished and what I need to do better. Some people do this as a resolution, some use a Word of the Year. It hit me this past year that my girls could really benefit from setting goals and feeling a sense of accomplishment once they reached a goal. So I came up with this little printable. Helping Kids Set Goals Worksheet that is a free download for you to use with your own children.
I’m excited because this year we were able to team up with Horizon Organic, to show how easy it is to teach children to plan out goals, and especially find a way to eat healthy while doing it.
Here’s how we started!
For the first section on the printable I asked my girls, “What is 1 thing new you’d like to try this year?” We are working on eating healthier as a family, but sometimes they don’t want to try the new veggies or fruits I bring home. They decided that they wanted to try new foods. (It kinda counts as more than one new thing, but if it’s helping them eat healthier, hey I’ll go for it.)
The second question I asked is, “What are 2 ways you can serve others?” I love incorporating service into their thoughts. So much of a child’s mind revolves around themselves. I’ve learned that as a parent, if I ask them to serve they are more than happy to and end up LOVING the resulting feelings. It’s never too young to teach them how to serve.
The third question on the sheet is, “What are 3 things I want to learn?” We got a variety of answers from each girl. From learning to sew, to learning how to play the flute. We will see how much I can help out with those
The 4th question is, “What are 4 things I want to get better at?” I think it’s important for children to work on being better at something. Weather it’s sports, reading, writing or coloring, there is always room for improvement.
The final question to ask, “Where are 2 places you want to go?” You can keep this in reason or have them reach for the stars. Our girls settled on Disneyland and a hike we’ve wanted to try as a family.
My girls had such a fun time working on this. They even invited friends to do a sheet too. I’m having them post the goal sheets next to their beds so they can be reminded and work on their goals through out the year.
Here’s the printable for you to download a Kids Goal sheet for your children.
