New year’s eve is special for not one but two reasons.

One, to welcome the brand new year and its promises but equally importantly, to thank the current year for all the joys and experiences it brought along.

To educate our child about the special aspects of the new year eve, we made this rotating new year paper plate craft.

We want to make sure they develop gratitude for what they have as much as they look forward to the new things the next year will bring along.

So, when the fireworks go off this year, remember to celebrate both the special occasions!

Thank you 2018 and Welcome 2019!

1.Draw a line on a paper plate dividing it into half. Trace a simple skyline an cut along it as shown in the picture.

2. Make a colorful skyline by filling buildings in different colors.. We used pencil colors but you can use any colors you like.

3. Outline the skyline using black color.

4. Take another paper plate and again draw a line dividing it into half.

5. On one half of the paper paper, make a night sky by coloring it black as shown.

6. After the black color dries, place the plate with skyline on top of it and write ‘Thank You 2018’ message.

7. For the 2019 day scene, place the plate with skyline on the uncolored side of the plate and draw the sky, sun and write the message ‘Happy New Year 2019’ as shown.

8. Join both the paper plates from the center using a brad pin.

You’re are all set to celebrate New Year with this fun and interactive paper plate craft.
