Little girls will love making a New Year’s Wishing Wand by One Artsy Mama. Set up a little craft table and let them create!
New Year’s Noisemakers by Alpha Mom are another fun and easy craft. And, they will get good use at midnight!
Kids can also make their own Confetti Poppers to use at midnight following the step-by-step directions at Honestly Yum.
This is probably our favorite 2016 Year in Review Printable and it’s from Skip To My Lou. Love that kids can add a little bit of their own personality!
Every year our kids look forward to our Balloon Drop like photographed and explained on A Bird and a Bean. It’s super easy to set up and worth the little extra effort. Be ready to take pictures as the balloons drop – you are sure to get some excited little faces!
Sparklers are pretty much a must for a New Year’s Party. They are always a hit with the kids…with proper adult supervision, of course!
Whatever your New Year’s plans, we hope your evening is wonderful!
Wishing you a fabulous 2017!
