Kid Friendly New Year’s Eve

by Kimberlee Stokes Affiliate Link Disclosure B

The New Year is almost here so I thought I would share some kid-friendly New Year’s Eve ideas.

 

FOOD

Make kid friendly appetizers like mini pizza bagels, fresh fruit with yogurt dip, and cheese slices cut with tiny cookie cutters.

 

DRINKS

Serve sparkling grape juice in wine or champagne glasses. Place fruit on a coffee stirrer for a fun decoration.

(You can even add a little 2012 banner to the stirrer.)

 

FUN

 DIY Confetti Poppers

(Click here for instructions.)

Let your kids “pop” these confetti poppers at midnight. (Be prepared to sweep. :) )

The Year in Review 

Have your children fill out this fun printable (click photo to print). Younger children can draw pictures, older children can draw and/or write about their memories and favorites for this year.

How do you celebrate New Year’s in a family friendly way?

Share your ideas and traditions in the comments. :)

I love the printable! My daughter is only four and other printables I’ve seen; I would have to fill in for her. The memories of her drawings make this even more special. For my family this is particularly good because my husband is a visual thinker more than verbal, and I think he would appreciate being able to incorporate symbols, icons or drawings instead of words too. The whole family will use this.
