Its hard to believe we’re in the last few weeks of the year. As I get older, the years seem to fly by faster and faster. And before you know it, we’ll be bringing in the New Year and making New Year resolutions!
Our tradition is to spend New Year’s Eve together as a family. Now that the kids are older, this means they get to stay up late and have special treats they might not otherwise get. But, it also means keeping them entertained!
We love to play games as a family, so on New Year’s Eve there are a lot of card games, board games and just general silliness to be had. However, our younger kids still have to go to bed, so we do a fun little party during the day for them!
Whether you are celebrating early or are looking for a fun activity to keep your kids entertained until midnight to ring in the New Year, here are some fun New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day crafts for kids.
