I’m a big Holiday girl. Easter, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Christmas, you name it, I get really excited. I immediately get crafting with my kids and envisioning how the days leading up to the Holiday as well as the big day will go. There is a holiday that I’m a bit of a Scrooge, however. And, it’s New Years.

I can’t remember when I became ambivalent about the Holiday. But before having kids and working in the restaurant industry, I would take the opportunity to make money over spending money any ol’ time. When I was pregnant, New Years became an event and home. Now that I have early rising kids, the idea of staying up until midnight is not my idea of fun. However, I won’t turn down the opportunity to have a little extra fun with them. So this year, we will have fun with our little ones doing things they love, tuck them into bed and be in bed ourselves early. While I have had fun buying cheap dollar store items and letting them drink 7Up from plastic wine glasses, I decided to ask some of my favourite bloggers for their best ideas for New Years kids activities. Here are over 15 simple New Years kids activities to enjoy at home!
