Everything You Need to Throw a Rockin’ Kid-Friendly NYE Bash!

Before your kids came along you probably had all kinds of fun on New Year's Eve. Whether you enjoyed ringing in the new year at a big party out on the town or at a smaller bash with close friends, you probably didn’t have to worry about who needed a diaper change, whether all the sugary snacks were going to lead to little cavities, or if there were enough fruit snacks to go around. Just because you’re on call as mom 24/7 now doesn't mean you can’t still throw a rockin' party. Check out the list below for everything you need to throw a fantastic, one-of-a-kind, kid-friendly NYE Bash!

Fantastic Snacks

Nothing says ‘party’ like snow cones. Even if your kiddos have had more than their share of candy and cookies this holiday season, snow cones by Snowie are special. Let your kids in on the fun but allowing them to take turns serving as the snow cone maker.  Once the little ones are in bed, don’t hesitate to add something a little bit stronger to the grown-up’s snow cones.

Noisemakers

Kids love noisemakers and, on New Year’s Eve, parents don’t mind them either. While noisemakers are lots of fun we recommend you choose disposable ones that won’t make it into the new year.

Party Hats

For most kids, the idea of time and dates is pretty ambiguous. That doesn’t mean that they won’t love a party hat that celebrates the new year. Choose party hats that display the new year and your kiddos will feel like they’re a part of something special!

Great Games

You don’t have to buy anything new to give your kids something special to play with as they stay up later than usual. Break out the new games they got for the holidays or family classics that you already have on hand and let them roll the night away.
