Countdown bags are a terrific way to count down to the New Year!

Simply decorate around 6 paper bags and label each bag with an hour leading up to the big event.

Fill each bag with something fun for the whole family such as treats, noisemakers, puzzles, etc. Then every hour until midnight, get one of the family members to open a bag to enjoy what’s inside.

It’s great fun for the whole family, most especially for the kiddos!

Nothing is more fun than a balloon drop to welcome the New Year!

Make a DIY balloon drop by getting a plastic tablecloth, balloons, masking tape, and long pieces of ribbon or string.

Secure the tablecloth to your ceiling or ceiling fan with the masking tape, and simply pull the string when it’s time. Everyone will love it!

Make fun snacks and desserts such as cookies, toffee and marshmallows for you and the whole family to enjoy.

You could also try out desserts from other cultures that are specific to New Year’s Eve. Vasilopita, a Greek New Year’s Eve cake, is baked with a coin hidden in the dough. Whoever gets the piece of cake with the coin will have good luck for the coming year.

Just make sure that the coin is big enough to be seen and not eaten! Get the recipe here.
