This year has just flown by and I’m looking forward to wrapping the holidays up and celebrating the start of a new one. We typically spend New Year’s Eve at home with the kids and have our own low-key party with just a few festive touches. Party blowers and poppers are a fun way to get kids excited about celebrating the new year. Make it a fun craft afternoon leading up to the evening by making paper and straw blowers, or easy poppers from paper tubes. These easy ideas will give kids something to look forward to as they count down the clock. How do you ring in the new year with the kids?
