New Years Eve For Children!

Wigu Publishing would like to wish you a very Happy New Years!  2014 was a year filled with both disastrous and wonderful moments!  The important thing is that we are all alive and healthy!  For children (and adults), 2015 is a chance to set new goals and dream big.


This New Years provides an opportunity to celebrate all of the good times in 2014, while looking ahead to an exciting 2015.


Below are a few New Years Eve ideas!  Thanks to About Parenting.



1.  Mock Countdown

If the kids at your celebration are too young to stay up until midnight, you can have a mock countdown at a more suitable time. Simply change the clocks so that they will strike 12 when it is actually only 7 p.m. or 8 p.m. Hand out noise makers, party hats and confetti to toss when the countdown ends. This is a great way for kids to be a part of the celebration, but still get to bed on time.

2.  Balloon Fun

Balloon Drop
Maybe you can’t have a ball drop in your own home, but you can have a bunch of balloons drop as you ring in the New Year. You can use a balloon drop kit, or make your own by filling some netting or a plastic tablecloth with inflated balloons (don’t use helium to inflate). Tape the balloon-filled net to the ceiling in the party room and release them when guests reach the end of their midnight countdown.

3.  Warm Cocoa Toast

Kids want to be a part of the New Year’s Eve toast, too. Why not let them indulge with a fancy champagne flute or wine glass – made of plastic and filled with non-alcoholic drinks, of course. You can pour ginger ale, a kid-friendly punch or even milk into their fancy beverage cups, but my favorite is warm cocoa (hot cocoa that has been allowed to cool just a bit), topped with marshmallows.

4.  Slumber Party

New Year’s Eve is the perfect time to throw a slumber party. Guests can gather in their jammies and ring in the New Year from their sleeping bags, or even from a tent pitched on the living room floor.
