New Year’s Eve with the kids

If you don’t know what to do with the kids on New Year’s Eve, don’t worry. I get it. Some of us (not me) are accustomed to the wild and wonderful; late New Year’s celebrations.

Once children are in the picture, it may seem like there is nothing to do.

But take it from me—our best New Year’s Eve celebrations with the kids have been at home.

Simple, super fun, and the kids are in bed by age 8 so you can keep celebrating however you want! (Or wear your sweatpants, like I do.)

Read on for all the ideas we’ve used at home over the past few years with the kids in 2019. Each one of them was a hit and made our family make so many happy memories.

New Year’s Eve wreath

Material

  1. First, tie a few mylar tassels onto a piece of twine.
  2. Make holes in the top of the gold letters and then tie them with another piece of string to spell out “Happy New Year.” The gold star wreath was store bought, so no DIY there.
  3. Combine the three garlands to make one large banner and hang it in a fun place.

New Year’s Eve Hats + Show Hooters

This one is simple! Just collect all the black and gold things in the house and put them together.

The only things we buy for the show are New Year’s crowns and noisemakers. It’s all about how you display it.

We use our Light boxPlus cake stands and trays to display the crowns.

Throwing confetti

We love to branch out and let everyone throw out confetti, and it’s truly one of my favorite memories of every year. If you have the space (and space) to do it, do it! It’s the best part of New Year’s Eve with kids for sure.

We use these scraps, They are colorful and look great when thrown.

FYI: I packed a bunch of the scraps into individual bags because I thought they would be cute, but in the end we realized we’d be better off putting them in a giant bowl and letting everyone take handfuls. So I recommend skipping the bags.

Champagne and cider toast

We do a fake countdown around 7pm because all of our guests have young children. So we prepared a toast in advance to make it easier.

We have one set of glasses designated for champagne and another set in a different area for sparkling cider so they don’t get mixed up.

Make your glasses early and pour your drinks right before your toast.
