Planning a New Years party with your kids? Who isn’t? I’m excited to celebrate this New Years Eve with my kids because they haven’t been interested in staying up until just recently! If you’re planning on celebrating with your kiddos this holiday season, keep them entertained (and awake!) with these New Years countdown ideas.
#1 If you have a hearty supply of paper plates, you (and your kids) can make these noisemakers as one of your party activities. These shakes from Censtible Life are louder than one would think!
Who doesn’t love Bingo? I can’t think of a single person! Celebrate the holiday with a New Years Eve themed bingo game. Naturally, prizes should be involved! Print it out at Family Fun Crafts.
Fill balloons with confetti and pop them with your kiddos as the clock strikes midnight. The only terrible part of this project is that you have to clean it up…
A party isn’t complete if there aren’t party hats involved! Have your kiddos make their own and wear them as the night progresses. The more vibrant, the better! Tutorial from Meaningful Mama.
There’s no better way to countdown to the New Year than with a homemade paper plate clock! You’ll need spray paint, and a few embellishments, that these can be found for pretty cheap at Michaels!
Who doesn’t love more noise maker DIY projects? These ones are designed to look like Christmas presents, and they’re incredibly loud. These cute noisemakers are made from boxes of raisins!
Love the idea of party hats, but think that the previous ones were much too plain? Jazz things up with these sparkly party hats from The Girl Inspired. Break out your prettiest scrapbook paper for this holiday DIY.
Fireworks and the New Year go hand in hand! This project will cause quite a bit of a mess, so you’ll need to lay down the appropriate protection on your tabletops or other work surface. Learn how to do it at Fantastic Fun and Learning.
Speaking of fireworks, did you know that you could make your own, and in a jar? Sneak in a little science project this New Years Eve, and teach your kids about liquids and solids while celebrating the holiday season. You’ll need oil and water to complete this craft! See how they did it at I Can Teach My Child.
I know I’m not the only one who attends parties for the food! I mean, I go for the company, but the food is definitely a major plus. These party horns are 100% edible, and they’ll be flying off your table all night long! You’ll want to use an ice cream cone as the base!
