Our Favorite Ideas for a Family Friendly New Year's Eve

Will you be ringing in the new year with some of your favorite little ones? Need some inspiration on easy ways to ensure that everyone has a great time? We've got you covered! We've compiled some of our favorite family friendly New Year's Eve ideas for you!

What a difference a year can make!

We love this Kids New Year's Resolution Printable from 30 Handmade Days! What a fun way to chronicle how much your kiddos change from year to year! And, who says the kids have to have all the fun? You should fill one out too! Click HERE for the full post.

It's time to get LOUD! For a little while anyway.

We love this idea from The Real Thing with the Coake Family for New Year's Eve Noise Makers. Just make then shake for some good 'ole fashioned NOISE on NYE! Click HERE for the full post.

Time to break out the bubbly!

The little bitties need some fun and sparkle too! LOVE these Bubbly Jell-O Parfaits from Spoonful -- and we're pretty sure your VIP guests will love them too! Click HERE for the full post.

Twist it, twist it GOOD!

Um, YUM? These Twisted Pretzel Bites from Six Sisters look delish and would be a fun finger-food for your kidlets (and the big people too). Click HERE for the full post.

5-4-3-2-1...HAPPY NEW YEAR!

How much do we love these New Year's Eve Countdown Bags from Organize and Decorate Everything...let us count the ways. What a fun way to countdown with fun treats, games, and activities opened at the top of each hour! Click HERE for the full post.

It's about to get fancy. 

Okay, so typically PB&J's are the exact opposite of fancy but roll it into cute little faux-sushi pinwheels and add chopsticks and your kids will nominate you for mother of the year. Thank you, Bon Appetite for such a fun idea! Click HERE for the full post.

Fun Food Your VIPs Will LOVE

The Dollar Store Mom has some really fun ideas for food that is both portable (for the kids that like to eat and mingle), easy to make, and adorably cute. Check out her Kids New Year's Eve Party Food for recipes and how-to photos. Click HERE for the full post.

Milk + Sprinkles + Shot Glass 'Fun Size' Glass = Adorable NYE Toast!

Cheers all around for these super cute Milk + Sprinkles Shots from Martha Stewart's Dreamers into Doers. Seriously, I can't think of anything cuter than the bitties kickin' back a shot fun size portion of moo juice rimmed in pretty party sprinkles. Click HERE for the full post.

Hours and Hours of FUN for the whole family!

Here's another fun countdown idea, this one from How Does She? is completely customizable too. Fill the balloons with fun ideas for short activities or crafts and pop one each hour leading up to midnight (or your designated 'midnight' depending on the age of your VIPs). Click HERE for the full post.

Face it, food on a stick is just more FUN! 

Super Healthy Kids made Sticky Stacky Sandwiches which are fabulous deconstructed sammies that you can customize based on your kiddos favorites sandwich elements. Click HERE for the full post.

Whatever you decide to do just remember to make it fun (and easy) and try to kick back and enjoy the time with your favorite little socialites. Cheers to a happy, healthy, and FUN 2013!
