New Year’s Eve Kids Activities

December 29, 2019 No Comments

Alright, people, it’s New Year’s Eve week and I’m here to share a few ideas that are perfect for pulling out this week with your littles at home! I have been feeling the pull to get back into some routine and for us, that starts with some easy prep, hands-on activities.

NEW YEAR DOT PAGES – FREEBIE
First up, New Year dot pages! These are print and go and great for some downtime. Pair them with dot stickers or some do-a-dot art markers and let your kiddos go to town dabbing away. Grab them FREE here or by clicking on the photo above.
FLUFFY GLITTER SLIME
A few months back we made fluffy slime for the very first time and my girls loved it! Riley has been begging to make it again so we decided to add in some gold glitter for a NYE twist and they have been playing with it for the last few days. *Note this one is a bit messy!

Elmer’s White School Glue
Shaving Cream

Baking Soda

Saline Solution

Gold Glitter

HOW TO
-Add 3 cups of shaving cream to a large mixing bowl.
-Measure and add in a 1/2 cup of Elmer’s glue. Stir.
-Mix in 1 TSP of baking soda.

-Mix in 1/3 Cup of Gold Glitter.
-Now add in 1 TBLS of saline solution. Stir with a spoon until it is well mixed and starts to pull away from the bowl edges. Then add a little solution to your hands and mix with your hands. If too sticky, add a little more saline solution. *If you want it more stringy consider adding a tablespoon of water at a time.
-PLAY! Pull, create, and squish that slime!

STICKY COLLAGE 2020
This one is FUN and super simple to set up. Sketch out bubble numbers for 2020 on a long sheet of paper. Tape it up to the wall. Cover with contact paper (STICKY SIDE OUT) and pair with tissue paper and pom-poms. Invite your littles to collage the year by sticking on scrunched tissue paper and pom-poms.
NYE SHAKERS
New Year’s Eve isn’t complete without some type of noisemaker. Am I right? So I collected a few paper towel rolls and invited the girls to create shakers. So easy to do and so FUN!
