Kid Friendly New Years Eve Activities

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.
