Have Fun with Sparkly Decor

There’s not much that kids love more than sparkles, so decorate your space with lots of streamers, glitter and shimmer. Balloons filled with confetti are fun to pop at different times during the party, and party hats covered in tinsel garland are fun for everyone.

Games that are Fun for All

Games make the party, so make sure you keep the kids interested and having fun all night. They’ll look forward to popping confetti balloons at different times during the night and playing New Year’s Eve bingo while watching the ball drop festivities on T.V. When the clock strikes midnight, head outside to light sparklers to celebrate the New Year!

Festive Food

While parents partake in a glass of champagne, the little ones can indulge on rock candy and gummy bear garnished fizzy drinks. Milk shots with sprinkles on the rim go perfectly with cookies throughout the evening and customized Hershey kisses are the perfect New Year’s kisses for the little ones to enjoy.
