New Year's Eve Activities for Kids

New Year's Eve Activities for Kids
I've been up to my shaving cream painting antics again.  This time I used silver and gold acrylic paint to swirl paint treat bags and card stock to cut out some stars and other decorations for New Year's Eve .

I've packaged the bags with some fun things to hand out as the evening goes along.

We normally start our New Year's fun around 5:00 and end around 8:00.  I didn't put times on our bags. I have a list of possible activities for the night, more on that later, and didn't want to feel too scheduled.

I found these light up balloons at Walmart in the party section and thought they would be fun for New Year's Eve.

My kids love to have their faces painted.  This will probably be one of the first activities we do for the night.  I usually google some face painting sites and let the kids pick out a design.  I found I have an easier time with full faces than small designs.  We have some gold hair spray too!

We don't usually do much for New Year's Eve, but I love all of your ideas. I'm thinking this might be a good year to start having some fun with it!
