New Year’s Eve Activities for Kids

Sharing is caring!

On the tail of Christmas there is another significant holiday to prepare for — NEW YEAR’S EVE! I guess technically the true event is January 1st, but for me, the fun has always started on December 31st. Now, with children in tow, my celebration activities have changed, but with the following activities I am sure there will be just as much laughter and memories made.

countdown bags

Countdown Bags

Bags filled with a fun activity or surprise to be opened each hour leading up until midnight (or bedtime)

bath drop

Bath Tub Balloon Drop

What a fun surprise to spice up a New Year’s Eve bath


Fancy Cookies & Milk

Say “cheers!” with this darling little snack


Cranberry Popcorn Garland

Growing up we used to take down our tree shortly after Christmas and retire it to the front porch with a homemade garland made especially for the birds to snack on. What a great activity this would be while watching a movie on New Year’s Eve!


New Year Interview

Mark the New Year with a fun little interview and then in coming years you can look back over them and smile!

Maybe your kids aren’t old enough for a board game night on New Year’s Eve, but I bet they would thoroughly enjoy an edible puzzle for dessert!

These are great suggestions. I'm definitely doing the balloon drop and interview with my children.
