Throwing A New Year's Party For Your Kids
This year we weren't able to be with our children on New Year's Eve, so we decided to have a celebration with them and another family, The Locke's, a few days later. To prepare for our party I recorded the Dick Clark New Year's special on t.v. so we could play it during the kid's party and count down with them as the ball dropped. We had party hats, noise makers, confetti, party poppers, our own New Year's ball pinata and lanterns. Before our guests arrived, Hudson,Piper and I set the table.
Once our friends arrived the kids all crowded around the table, got on their beads and hats, and we turned on the New Year's special on t.v. Once they were all decked in their party gear, we served them pizza and sparkling wild berry and white grape juice in their champagne glasses. When they were finished with their pizza, they had New Year's cupcakes.
About this time they were starting the minute countdown on t.v., so we all started counting down together. As the ball dropped we all yelled Happy New Year, kissed and cheered. After that the kids did some confetti party poppers and then they did their New Years Ball pinata.
After they finished scrambling for the pinata candy, we all went outside and popped some fireworks, did fountains, and let off Chinese lanterns so they could make a wish for the coming year! We all had a great time and can't wait for next years celebration!
Wishing you happiness, health and alittle pixie dust,
