I start back at Guides this week and in keeping with tradition, we often look at resolution making in January. It’s not always personal – sometimes we look at them in terms of the things they would like to try at Guides during the year.
In the past we have written ourselves letters, sealed until the end of the year, and made little matchbooks, but this year I decided to go with the firework scheme. I recently came across Popplet, which I think is a very cool mind mapping tool and I had been toying with a lesson plan to do with resolutions. In doing so came up with 5 strands to make it less intimidating to children:
something I will do less of
something I will do more of
something I will do with my friends
something I will do at home
something I will do at school (or work if you are grown up).
As you can see by the image, I have used black card – this is A5 – and glitter glue in the center for the 2015.
Strips of colour are applied (perfect for using up those scraps of coloured paper we (I) have hanging around) – these are the pretty bit of the firework and hold your resolutions – small to keep things short and to the point – and white pen was used to add drama.
I put a paper ribbon on the top for hanging. Will let you know how these went down at Guides!
