In anticipation of the New Year, we’ve got five brilliant activity ideas for you to make New Year with kids memorable for all. Themed around new year, each of our five ideas offer something different. Ideas for the kids to do on their own, giving mum and dad time to organise for the big event, alongside ideas to do together as a family.
#1 New Year Activities Printable Pack
How about starting the New Year celebrations off with a little bit of screen free time for the kids? We’ve got loads of New Year printable activities for you to keep the kids away from those screens for a wee bit.
#2 Firework Craft
Get into the spirit of the New Years Eve celebrations with the children by making these fabulous firework craft. We’ve made two different types of artwork; one with paint and one with glitter. You can choose to just do one or make both!
#3 New Years Resolution
It’s nearly New Years so how about helping the kids with their New Years resolution? You might even want to do the activity with the kids as well. There is no harm in getting your own New Years resolution ideas in order is there?
#4 2018 in Review
We love the start of a new year with the kids, don’t you? It is full of excitement for the year ahead, and wonderful memories of the year just gone. It is a perfect time to reflect with the children on the year that has just been, and we love getting sat down, and doing our Year in Review each year. It is a great New Year activity that we really think help the kids to look back and learn coming into the New Year.
#5 2019 Printable Calendar
How about printing off our fabulous free printable 2019 calendar and working with the kids to add exciting days for them to look forward to next year. They could be birthdays, parties, holidays or days out as a family. Our fabulous printable calendar would make rather awesome posters to add to any kids’ bedroom wall. Did we say this is for the little ones – because the pictures are just too cute to give to just the kids, right?
