Noon Year’s Eve Celebration!

| | , ,

It’s (definitely) time to bid farewell to 2020! Let’s stay home and celebrate the start of a brand new year with a Noon Year’s Eve Party for kids and their families (because everyone wants to be well rested for our 2021 fresh start, amiright?)! 

 

First, let’s countdown to noon with some cute (easy to make) Goodie Bags!

Decide what you want to stuff your goodie bags with, it could be a glow stick, stickers, a balloon to blow up, or something completely different like a good deed to do for someone else or something you think is special about them 🙂 and pick your bags, use plain old paper bags, or something a little fancier (it’s totally up to you).
