Kids New Years Party

The kids were so excited to have their very own New Years party two years ago.  I did drop the ball and did not take very many photos of all of our actives. I put everything together the day before so with a little more planning it could be even more fun.  The kids had a blast though and my kids who go to bed at 8 made it all the way to midnight with our hourly activity count down.


I was getting ready to take down the tree when I thought what a great way to hold all of our hats, glasses and blowers for midnight. Right before midnight we all went to the tree and picked out our party gear.


We had a planned activity or treat planned for every hour. Each child got a chance to pop a balloon labeled with each hour on them.


One of the balloons announced a snack of milk and cookies. The kids thought this was very cool.


They also got to play the one handed skittle race. They each had the same number of skittles and cups labeled with the colors on them. Each kid had to as fast as they could sort the skittles with one hand and put them in the right cup. This started off very cautiously but got very fun and loud as they got close to the end. They also loved eating the skittles at the end.


One of the balloons had the game where IMG_2057everyone puts a Oreo on their forehead and by just using the muscles in their faces they try to get the cookie in their mouth.  This was a blast to watch the grown ups even joined it.


At midnight they toasted in the new year with sparkling grape juice.


About danielle

Hi! I am Danielle Interior designer turned stay at home mother of 3 wonderful kids. I love to do crafts, projects, parties, and photography. With this being said I am a not a pro by any means and have had many many failed attempts. Some funny and some just plain ugly:) I do not care for cooking and house work. My goal is to find a better, faster, more organized way to just get it done so I can spend time with the ones. This is where Pinterest has come into my life. Pinterest and I have a love/hate relationship. I have spent the better part of a day looking up great ideas and never putting them to use. What a waste of time... or is it? Sometimes I find something that rocks and I try it and the world is a better place:) But the worst is when I try something and it’s a big bust. A how did that ever pass for working, did they even read the steps they were giving, or do you think they get a laugh out of my attempt. Many friends have told me that I need to post the bad ones so they don’t bother and let them know the good pins so they can give them a try. So here goes!
