What would you say to your younger and future selves? Would you impart the wisdom you've gained to the younger version of yourself? And would you perhaps share your goals and aspirations with the future you?

This creative printable activity encourages children and students to reflect on what they've learnt over the years and also think about goals they want to achieve for the future.

Let's get creative!
