New Year’s Eve Party Art


Making your own New Year’s Eve Party decorations is a great way to get your kids involved in your party preparations. Just remember that there is no such thing as too much glitter…
New Years Eve Art Project for Kids

Long gone are the days when all 3 of my kids are tucked up in bed before our New Year’s Eve party begins. They still won’t quite make it up until midnight (I hope not anyway), but they will be around for more of our party than before. This means it’s time to get them more involved.

Every party needs party decorations and a New Year’s Eve Party needs them with extra sparkle. Something that my kids are very good at providing. I’m hoping to get them involved in the pre-party clean up as well, but I may be pushing my luck with that one.

Ahead of the Activity

I prepared a 2017 template for the kids to fill with lots of sparkly bits and bobs left over from Christmas, along with some of our general arts and crafts supplies.

It seemed such a waste to just throw out all of the party hats and pulled crackers. So I cut them down to mosaic sized pieces to use on these collages and our Christmas Thank You cards.

They both made a grab for the new glitter tubes to get their party art started. I stood back as their decorations and the table were showered with glitter.

Taking great care over each of the numbers in their collage, trying to give each one a unique design. BUT all had one common theme running through them, LOTS of glitter!
