New Years with Kids
This year we will be celebrating New Years with several of our good friends! We wanted to make it fun for the kids as well as enjoyable for the adults. The kids countdown will be at 7:00, but still just as enjoyable. Here is a look at some of our ideas of what we will be up to!
Milk toasts with sprinkles on the cup! (We ended up using sparkling cider, they loved it).
Answer questions about yourself…we do this interview with our kids each year to see how their likes change. We include favorite color, food, book, friend, etc.
Homemade noise makers (We used store bought ones due to time….)
1. Beans in a cottage cheese container
2. Drum with oatmeal container or empty box.
3. Kazoo with empty toilet paper roll. Secure a piece of wax paper on one end with a rubber band and poke a small hole near the open end.
We have also done confetti (have the kids hole punch or tear paper to get it ready and have them throw it at the countdown.
Balloon release is fun. Blow up several balloons and place them on a sheet. When it is countdown time have the people hold it up over the kids head and then drop at “midnight.”
Another idea is a family time capsule, bury it in the yard and find it again the next year…or in 5 years!
Have fun creating those memories!
