Keeping the kids happy until midnight on New Year’s can be a daunting task. The later it gets, the more tired and bored the kids are and the more stressful the whole night becomes for everyone. I have found a few crafts that are sure to keep everyone busy and happy all the way to midnight…
Countdown to Midnight Box (pictured above) – The Dating Divas came up with this fantastic idea. Hour by hour, from 8-midnight, kids open a bag to reveal a craft or activity to help ring in the new year. This includes making noise makers, goal setting activities and All About Me letters to fill out.
Happy New Year Garland – We featured this last year as a New Year’s craft idea and it was a big hit! My kids are always wanting to do something to decorate for special occasions to make our house look “pretty.” I know they will have a blast making this Happy New Year Banner and as an added bonus it will be a great way for them to practice writing and recognizing their letters. I love when things can be both educational and fun at the same time! Thanks Kaboose.

I hope everyone has a very safe and fun New Year’s Eve!
