How can I keep all the young guests busy during my new years eve party?

We did those Glow Sticks & Balloons at a New Year's party last year, and the kids LOVED them. Warning - the balloons will pop when they hit the grass... but then they played "laser tag" with the glow sticks in the dark and had a blast. They've already requested a repeat for this year. Think it will become a family tradition! :)

These are so simple and surprisingly fun:

My kids are still little so we countdown to noon instead of midnight. I also love the idea of having balloons filled with an activity for each hour to keep the kids entertained. Oh, and I love the idea of decorating the Christmas tree with New Year's decorations and adding wishes for the new year in balloons for the kids to pop at midnight and read their special messages from Mom and Dad!

Kids love photo booths...grab some feather boas, hats, and other dress up items from your local party store. You can make your own photo booth props too. I've used sticky back foam to cut out shapes and stick them on wood dowels (mustaches, masks, sunglasses, bowties, etc.)

My little ones love breaking these surprise poppers open! We made them for a birthday party and filled with sequins and candy. A bit of a mess to clean up but totally worth the fun ...
