New Year’s eve celebrations don’t have to last until the wee hours of the night with your kids and you don’t have to sacrifice fun either!
Here are a few interesting ideas from around the web, that you could use to celebrate the New Year with little ones.
Make a crown
You could make a crown to wear while you’re celebrating. Make it as fancy as you like, add in colours or keep it plain. Include some numbers to mark the turning of the year – perhaps cut out 2018 from a magazine or print it off for your children to stick on their crown.

Wish upon a boat
Make a walnut boat and sail it across a tub of water (or a spare aluminium roasting tin), while making a wish for the New Year. Sweet idea by Brother Acorn who explains the activity with all the pleasures and troubles of making them!
Countdown with Netflix
Did you know Netflix has a number of cool, kid friendly countdown clocks for New Year’s Eve? Ghostbusters, Madagascar, and Skylanders are just a few of the themes you can pick from. Make any time feel like midnight!
Make a time capsule
You can collect all the things that have been important (but not too important) through the year. Draw pictures of your family together, and put them in a little jar to be buried in the back garden. Open them next year, or leave them for ten more years! Find more New Year’s Eve activities for Kids ideas here from Growing a Jewelled Rose.
