NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Some kids are getting a head start on their New Year’s celebration.
Children got to start the new year off with some fun and creativity at the Children’s Museum of Manhattan on the Upper West Side.
As the museum’s glittering New Year’s Eve ball came down, children told CBS2’s Meg Baker their wish for 2016.
“I hope it’s going to be a good year,” one child said.
“To be happy,” another child said.
“That everybody has clothes,” another said.
Isabel and Siera have birthdays at the beginning of the year and since it wasn’t a white Christmas, they are hoping for some snow for the new year.
Many also vowed to stop teasing their brothers and sisters.
Parents will make sure to help the kids keep their resolutions.
“It’s important to teach your kids about different goals and what you would set,” parent Tracy Jacobs said. “You could show them how you set them for yourself, like if I want to be a neater mom, or somebody who’s more involved. If you try to give them an example I think that helps them out a bit.”
