Let us toast to new beginnings!
Welcoming New Year 2020, if you are home with children, why not make it a grand New Years’ Eve experience they will never forget! Make this year more special by spending it with your loved ones. We have collected a list of fun ways to enjoy New Year with kids including countdowns, food, crafts, games, and more to give a head start to the year 2020! Cheers!
Looking back at last year and forward to next year
Each new year we get is a new canvas on which to create our lives. Gather your kids around and you can look through old photo albums and watch family videos of special events from the past throughout the year. Make a yearly video and ask the same questions to each child every year to document changes. Make your kids fill out a printable with goals and hopes for next year teaching them about changes and resolutions.
New Year scavenger hunt
Hide presents. old pictures, candles, etc. in every room of your house and draw a map to help the kids find it.
All you need to do is print out the free scavenger hunt paper and grab a pencil or crayon, and you’re all set! Your kids will definitely enjoy this activity.
Let the hours of excitement begin!This gorgeous New Years’ Eve Balloon Pop Countdown is the perfect way to see in the new year with a BANG!
Use a hand pump to inflate the balloons and set them in a garland and then use a ribbon hang it in place. Watch the minutes countdown and on the hour, every hour, until midnight, pop the balloon for a flurry of confetti.
New Year Resolutions
Kids and adults can benefit from writing out their New Year’s resolution. To help cement the experience and help to remind them of their resolution, your kids can celebrate the experience by making a fun craft.
New Year’s Resolutions for Kids can be simple or more detailed, but it is a great exercise for kids to come up with their own resolutions.
New Year’s Eve DIY Party Hats
Ring in the New Year with style wearing New Year’s Eve Coloring Party Hats! They are super easy to make and are sure to be a hit with kids at your New Year’s bash.
Begin by decorating your hats – use pens, pencils, crayons, watercolours, stickers, sequence.. whatever you fancy!!! We used highlighter pens! Cut out. Add a little tape to one side of the had. Twist the cone and secure on the other side. You can also glue this bit instead of tape it. You should now have a cone! Thread your Pom Pom threads through the top of your hat. Pull on the string to make it nice and tight and tape in place. Finally tape some elastic to the sides of your hat for wearing.
Welcome the new year at home with a celebration the whole family will enjoy. Finally, you can bake cakes, cookies, and cupcakes together with your kids, let them help decorate them then light the sparklers when it’s time to welcome the sweet new year. It’s a good way for the kids to learn and enjoy their sweet efforts as well.
You can try any ideas above to start the year by making great memories with your children.
Thanks to our valued collaboration, 2019 was a very successful year. We look forward to more of the same good relationship in the coming years. Kopila teams send best wishes to you and yours in the New Year 2020.
