Kid Friendly New Years Eve Activities

It is hard to believe it is almost time to ring in a New Year! As my children get older each year they beg to stay up later and later. I try to have a fun evening to include them in New Years Eve celebrations. We start the night out by having a fun family friendly game of Disney Princess Candy Land followed by ice cream sundae bar. I put toppings out and let them decorate their ice cream with M&M's, sprinkles, chocolate syrup, gummy worms, etc.

Kid friendly NYE activites:

  • Ice Cream Sundae Bar
  • Board Games
  • Make Resolutions Together
  • Make Your Own Noise Maker
  • Create A Fun Time Capsule Using A Shoebox or Two Liter Bottle
  • Make A Countdown Clock
  • Have A Balloon Drop At Midnight
Serve a fun and festive milk and cookies snack (Use plastic flutes from a party store)

Make some creative "mocktails" for your children. Let them help create them, use apple juice or sprite and add fun candy to the drink. Here is a really great website with lots of fun kid friendly mocktails for kids

Kids love to get creative and what better time than New Years Eve to make a family time capsule?! It is very easy to create using a shoe box or two liter bottle. You can fill the time capsule with a few momento's from the year, such as Disney theme park tickets, photo's, movie ticket stubs, etc. Or you could even download this free time capsule printable

Include the kids and complete these awesome New Years Resolutions together. 

Whatever you do on New Years Eve make sure it is something fun and simple. Your kids will enjoy spending special time together as a family. Don't stress over trying to make the perfect New Years celebration, it's all about fun.
