Since hearing about this idea of NOON Year’s Eve, I had to start looking for fun activities that could be used to entertain the kids. I’m kind of liking the idea of partying during the day and not having anyone suffer the effects from lack of sleep. Sure, I like to stay up and watch the ball drop (can’t think of a year I’ve missed it) but I like to sleep when I can too. I might seriously consider doing a Noon Year’s Eve Party next year.
So when I went searching for ideas, you know I went straight to Pinterest. Party planning central over there. I have a whole New Year’s board which has several resources for kid friendly activities. I haven’t looked through all of them thoroughly yet, so some of the ideas I’m about to ramble off below may or may not be listed somewhere.
