5 Ideas for Celebrating New Years Eve with Toddlers and Younger Children

Get an Older Child to Help

We think it’s a great idea to pay older kids to help run craft tables and generally help you manage your younger party-goers and New Years activities for toddlers.

Set up a Craft Station

Once you have secured some younger teenagers to help out, let them manage the craft area for toddlers. If you can’t find help, adults in the group can do this too.

Cupcake Decorating

Cupcake decorating is a fun and tasty way to enjoy any party! It’s also the ideal New Years activity for toddlers and kids.

Stage an Early Kids Ball Drop at your Family New Years Eve Party

If you plan to have adults stay later, you might want to think about having an early kids ball drop to help the wee ones get in on the action.

Group Bedtime

This way, you can have a New Year’s Eve party for the family without having to end the fun before the adults are ready!
