New Year’s Eve Activities for Kids to Countdown
New Year’s Eve ideas for Young Kids
We started with some fun shades of cardstock
. Cut the paper into one inch strips. I grabbed a marker and wrote out activities on each chain link. Add a number for each link. If the kids are older and will be staying up until midnight, you may want more numbers with activities for each hour. A great idea for younger kids is to celebrate “midnight” at 7 or 8:00 pm. You can still do this activity chain, you just won’t need as many chain links and activities.
Our New Year’s Eve Countdown Activities included:
- Make a New Year’s resolution.
- Play charades.
- Dance party!
- Say something you are thankful for.
- What is something you are looking forward to in the new year?
- And for the midnight chain link…Band pots and pans! Celebrate the new year with family and friends!
Use a piece of clear tape
to connect the rings. You’ll want to make sure they are in number order.
This is a fun way to get the kids involved in the new year celebrations. Have the kids give input on the ring activities.
