The glitz and glam of New Year’s Eve changes drastically when you have children. We like to go to dinner, and then have a mini celebration at home. The kids don’t make it to midnight, but the idea of celebrating our year together and talking about the exciting new year ahead has become something of a tradition. We also like to play games and have a special dessert. To help me out with the planning, I found a few fun inspiring blogs that included some great ways to ring in the new year with the kids.
1. The Inspired Room shared five-kid friendly New Year’s Eve ideas from various blogs, and I instantly loved the “Celebrating the Year” printout from Wonderful Joy Ahead where kids can chart their favorite things to do, eat, wear and more!
2. Glitter is big in my house, so I loved the sparkly DIY Glitter Holiday Party Hat that we could all make together to celebrate the New Year.
3. Our friends at Project Nursery shared some festive ideas to celebrating with the kids with some of favorites being playing dress-up, creating a photo booth, and having a sing-along.
4. Living on a Coupon has a simple idea to keep the kids busy by having them pop a balloon for every hour that passes leading up to midnight.
