GAME: Part  1 – Tell everyone to go get one thing that is OLD.

ASK: What was your least favorite thing that happened this past year?

SAY: But sometimes when something is old, we want to get rid of it.

ASK: What is something old you got rid of this past year? (i.e., an old pair of shoes, an old toothbrush, etc)

ASK: Are their some old habits or attitudes that you would like to get rid of for the New Year?

GAME: Part  2 – Tell everyone to go get one thing that is NEW.

Take turns letting everyone show what he has and why he chose that item.

ASK: What is something you would like to change about your life this next year?

ASK: What is something you would like to change about our family this next year?

Read and discuss 2 Corinthians 5:17 from your Bible.

OPTIONAL ACTIVITY (depending on the ages of your children): Have your kids write letters to themselves describing their spiritual goals for this next year. Help your kids to fold up their letters and put them in envelopes. Then put the letters in a safe place. Tell the kids that you’ll open the letters as a family in a year.

PRAY—Ask God to bless your family and to glorify Himself through you family this next year.
