New Year’s Eve parties are usually a grown ups only affair, which is just fine until you have kids and have to pay an extortionate amount for a baby sitter. And besides, why should the younger ones miss out on welcoming in the New Year?
This year why not turn the tables and throw a family friendly New Year’s Eve party for your children and their friends. The secret is that instead of counting down to midnight, you count down to noon!

Throw a New Year’s Eve Party for Your Kids
Decorate for the party
These paper cup party hats are so sparkly, they’re perfect for a New Year’s Eve party.
Even the youngest toddler will be able to get involved turning some plastic cups into goblets for the children to drink from.
No party is complete without a glittering disco ball, and the fabulous thing about this one is it’s actually a piñata!
And for some cutting practice the children could make some beautiful Chinese Lanterns to hang in the party room.
And finally work together to make some shakers and maracas so that party guests can welcome the New Year in with lots of noise.
Make some party food
Grown ups seem to enjoy fondue on New Year’s Eve and the little ones can enjoy a cupcake version which is safe for them because the dip isn’t hot.
Have fun at the party
These New Year themed printable games include pin the arms on the New Year clock and I spy!
The toddlers at the party will enjoy playing with sparkly play dough, just make sure there’s an adult supervising at all times.
And when the clock strikes 12…
Have fun welcoming in the New Year!
