Hickory, dickory, dock
Hickory, dickory, dock,
The mouse ran up the clock;
The clock struck one,
And down he run,
Hickory, dickory, dock.
Making Bread Cheesybreadville – Between the Lions
[PBS Learning Media]
Have your child write their own New Year’s Resolutions. Record them to listen to at the end of the year. Start a tradition of celebrating New Year’s at noon so that your children can join in on the fun of counting down! Have a ball drop (use a piñata or make your own ball by wrapping a beach ball in foil) and “toast” with sparkling apple cider! Make a list with your child of all their favorite memories of last year. Have them draw some of the memories to share with friends and family.
