Throw a Noon Year’s Eve Party

PBS.org has some great ideas to throw a family-friendly New Year’s Eve party. Here’s a look at some of the highlights:

  • Travel the Time Zones – set clocks around the house to ring in the New Year in other time zones.
  • Make Some Noise – have kids create their own noisemakers by filling water bottles with rice, beans, coins, and other items to make a festive noise.
  • Flip Your Lid – gather supplies like newspaper, wrapping paper, ribbons, cardboard, or paper plates to make festive New Year’s hats.
  • Resolution Tree – Transform your Christmas tree into a Resolution Tree. Have the kids help pack away decorations and help them write resolutions on small note cards. Leave the lights on the tree and tie the note cards to the branches.
  • Drop the Ball – Have the kids craft their own ball to drop at “midnight.”
