Family Fun: NYE Balloon Countdown


If you’re ringing in the New Year with kids at home, you may want to try this awesome balloon countdown idea from Elena at Craftibilities. It will take some planning ahead of time to gather up all the materials, but should prove for a very fun filled and memorable evening for the whole family.

Be sure to time your activities out to fit your schedule. The last thing you want is to be stressing out over beating the clock! Choose activities that suit your family’s interests, or better yet, have everyone contribute one idea, and put them in charge of facilitating (if they are old enough). This way, it takes some of the work off of dear old mom and dad, and everyone will get to do something they really like.


For the full set of instructions and activity ideas, head on over to Craftibilities.

This could be the start of a great family tradition!
