5 fantastic New Years Eve craft ideas for kids!

These 5 exciting New Years Eve craft ideas for kids are perfect to welcome in the New Year and reflect on the past one.  They help children to think about family events and personal achievements, plus focus on ambitions and hopes for the new year.

Most of these New Years Eve craft ideas for kids use materials that will likely be lying around your house post-Christmas, or are already in your craft supplies.  Why not give one or two of them a try?

5 fantastic New Years Eve craft ideas for kids:

1. Make memory strings to reflect on the year gone by.
See the full photo tutorial and examples at Art Yowza.

2. Make (and play!) a photo memory card game.
This how-to comes from No Time for Flash Cards.  What a lovely way to remember special moments from the past year while having fun together!


3. Make a champagne cork chair.
I just love these tiny chairs from Red Ted Art – perfect for a doll’s house, or to go into a family time capsule jar (just add the date/occasion that you opened the bottle).

4. Hand out countdown surprise bags for the kids.
Have them open one every hour until midnight.  Cupcakes & Cutlery has some great ideas for what to include (and activities to go along with the contents).

5. Have a NYE hat making party.
What a great idea from Mer Mag (hat template included) – lay out all the materials needed and let the kids’ imaginations do the rest!
This would make a great family tradition too, don’t you think?
