New Years Eve Countdown Activities for Kids

New Years Eve can change pretty dramatically once you have kids, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t be fun anymore! These New Years Eve countdown activities for kids are great ways to get your children excited about the New Year, of course I’m not at all convinced my kids will be up at midnight (I’ll probably be in bed by then too!) but even if your kids aren’t staying up that late you could easily use these ideas for making some creative NewYears Eve countdown ideas for their bedtime or for a mid-day party. And if you need any more ideas don’t forget to check out my round up of New Years Eve crafts and activities to get the kids excited – I adore the slime and the fireworks paintings!
