Paper Plate Noise Maker

What’s a New Year’s Eve celebration without noise makers? These party favours are really festive and quite easy to make. Necessary supplies include paper plates, several colours of curled ribbon, crayons or markers, tape, a stapler and something like small beads or pasta that makes noise when you shake it.

Balloon Countdown

This is a fun way to reminisce about what’s happened during the past year. Using a small funnel, fill clear balloons with a bit of gold glitter. Next, fill the balloons with helium (Many party supply stores have portable helium tanks for rent.)

Print out the provided tags and attach one to each balloon. Add adhesive numbers (7 through 12) for the countdown. At the top of each hour, pop the corresponding balloon and have your kids answer the question on the tag.

Toilet Paper Party Poppers

There’s no reason to spend the money on expensive party poppers when you can make your own. What’s so cool about this particular craft is that it gives kids a chance to get really creative.

All that’s required to make the poppers is recycled toilet paper rolls, confetti, tissue paper in a variety of colours, small trinkets or little pieces of candy, washi tape, ribbon and scissors.

Fill the to the paper rolls with the confetti and candy or trinkets. Wrap each roll in tissue paper, twisting the ends. Decorate as desired. To “pop” the poppers, simply pull hard on each end and watch the confetti fly.

I hope you take the time to explore all of the fun New Year’s Eve crafts on this list. It’s not too early to think about things for kids to do or eat as they bring in the new year!
