As most of us prepare for an evening dressed up and out kid free for New Years, our little family will be spending it home with kids. Like most years, we don’t really go out and celebrate. It’s really hard to find things to do for New Years outside of the house. Every year we find ourselves in this dilemma and I refuse to spend it like another day. Because it’s not, my hope is for my littles to look back over their year and appreciate everything they were blessed with good and the bad. Despite it all we’ve made some huge accomplishments! Sooo finding fun things to do at home to make ringing in the New Year a little more special, well we’ve got a plan in mind….
I was very lucky to have been able to get together with some of my dear friends to test out some Kid Friendly Activities for the evening.This was by far one of the funnest and easiest collaborations I’ve done in a long time. And even though it was only a collaboration shoot, all of our kids acted just as happy as if it were New Years! All of them listed below have been tried tested and LOVED by all of our little ones! Here are some of the special links to find for each.

Below I’m sharing a quick and painfully easy treat to share. Way to easy to be truthful!
We all wish you a fun evening with your family. A very healthy, happy and glorious 2018!!

- Shish Kabob Sticks
- Star Cookie Cutter
- First bring out your blueberries and wash them
- Cut your watermelon into slices of circles
- Lay flat on a clean counter and using your Star Cookie Cutter cut star shapes
- Start putting your blueberries onto your shish kabob stick one at a time, leaving some space at the very top for the watermelon. I used 6 berries
- Gently place your star shaped watermelon at the very top of the stick
