Hello my friends! I think my new years resolution needs to be to keep up on my blog a little better (ahhhh...life's been crazy)! I am so excited to start fresh in 2014, and I plan on this upcoming year to be a very happy one for me.
This New Years Eve, I decided to have a party with kids instead of adults...and I couldn't be happier! I am thrilled to bring in the new year with them and make it an amazing memory for all of us. I have come up with some ideas to make the night easy and super FUN!!
I'm letting my kids invite a few friends and this will be our agenda:
Come in your PJ's: Okay lets be honest, I am doing this first one mostly for myself! Wearing your pj's just makes everything better...plus, you can eat more this way!
Have Balloons with Written Times: To make your night and schedule run smoothly, blow up balloons and add a paper with your plan for that specific hour. When it is that time, let the kids pop the balloon and read what is next on the agenda. They will love this!!
6:00-Make Individual Homemade Pizzas: Making your own pizza is always a hit with kids and it gets their creative brain working. You can make the dough yourself, or just buy the pizza crust already made (that's what I'm doing). Then, buy pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, peperoni, olives, ham, pineapple, mushrooms, tomatoes, and whatever else you like on your pizza. Bake them for 10-15 minutes on 375 degrees. EASY!!
7:00-Make Party Hats: Create your own party hats for your celebration with cardstock and ribbon! Decorate them by using pom-poms, glitter, sequins, glitter glue, ribbon, and anything else you have laying around.

8:00-Make and Decorate Cookies & Sprinkle Topped Milk Glasses
9:00-Play Charades: Come up with topics that have to do with new years eve...a few ideas are: Sparklers, Time Square, Clock, 2014, Balloons, Confetti, Party, Crowd, Goals, Food, Midnight, Ball Drop.
11:00 Karaoke & Dance Party!! Turn up the music, dance, sing and have Advil close by!
12:00 Scream, Bang Pots and Pans, Brush their Teeth and go to BED !
I hope you have a wonderful New Years Eve and a blessed New Year!
P.S. If you want to go by New York time so the kids can go to bed sooner, then change your clocks in the name of your sanity.
