As our kids grew old enough to know that something special was happening on New Year’s Eve, they became more and more persistent about wanting to participate. Some years we took them to see fireworks, but that is typically a COLD endeavor here in New York. Other years we have gone to parties where kids were an included piece of the puzzle, and many fabulous Kid Friendly New Years Eve Activities were planned.
Whether you are going to a party, hosting your own, or just having a night in with your children, I have compiled a list (and links to many other lists) of Kid Friendly New Years Eve Activities. From food to crafts, and games to books, there is something for everyone to enjoy!
