New Year’s Eve is a special time to reflect upon the past year and to celebrate all of the amazing goals and dreams that you have for the upcoming year. For us, New Year’s Eve is always family time, filled with sparkling cider, party poppers, and LOTS of fun crafts and activities to keep us busy all night long! It’s one of my favorite holidays to celebrate with my family, and I love spending this time sharing our favorite memories and planning our new year together.
To keep the countdown ’til midnight exciting, I’ve put together a list of 10+ fun New Year’s Eve activities to keep the kids busy and entertained (and I’m sure that the adults will want to join in on the fun, too!)

Aww I loved this articles, the first one and the fireworks one were my favourites!
Thanks for the printables. What can be used to keep the hats on the kids heads?
You can tie a string or piece of elastic to the hats (to go under the chin) or pin them to hair with bobby pins! 🙂
