New Years Eve Party Ideas for Kids

I have a confession to make.  Since I’ve been married, we have never had a New Years Eve party.  In fact, I don’t think we’ve even let the kids stay up until midnight before.  Shame on me, right?  This year will be different!  Since I’ve been searching for family New Years Eve ideas, I thought I’d share some of my favorites with you.  I’ve collected more than 40 New Years Eve Party Ideas for Kids.  Have fun!

  2. I LOVE this! So many fantastic ideas – thanks for pulling them all together so nicely!

  4. Wow! A ton of ideas! I love the animal party blowers- so fun!
