15 New Year’s Crafts and Activities For Kids

New Year's Crafts and Activities For Kids By: NotSoIdleHands.com

When I was a kiddo, New Year’s Eve was so fun! It wasn’t fun because we went to parties or went downtown to watch fireworks…..it was fun because we got to pick movies to watch and snacks to munch all together as a family. Earlier in the day, us kids would sometimes make little crafts and concoct hats and such to help celebrate and that was what made the New Year extra memorable…the home made aspect of it.

That’s what our kiddos get a kick out of too….they love helping plan our “menu” of snacks and fight about try to decide what movies we watch as we all snuggle up against they cold weather outside and celebrate a new year together.

I’ve been looking for some fun activities and crafts they can make while we get ready for the big day whether you stay in or go out and here are some of my favorites:
