New Year’s Interview for Kids

Capture your kiddos favorite things, special memories, and more with a New Year’s interview! This is our third year of interviews and the girls just love hearing what their answers were in the past – lots of giggles!

kids' new year's interview

Here’s our list of questions:


  • cereal
  • vegetable
  • drink
  • toy
  • TV Show
  • game
  • book
  • restaurant
  • holiday
  • animal

If you could change your name, what would you choose?

What do you love about each person in our family?

Where would you like to go on vacation this year?

What are some of your wishes for this year?

I have these in a little notebook, but this year I want to do something a little more special. I’m typing their answers and printing them out, leaving space for a self-portrait and a photo. I’ll put these in a binder or simple scrapbook so we can enjoy them each year. We may add or change the questions as the kids get older, but I love capturing a little moment in time like this.

Happy New Year!

    We do something like this only on their birthdays and I also trace their hands. Even my 10 year old loves to see how his hands have grown.

    I just started doing something similar to this… I have my daughter color the same picture every year and put it into a binder. It will be neat to see how her style changes over the years. I got the idea here:
