New Year's Eve Party Games

If you’re staying in and having a family-friendly New Year’s Eve party, you’ll want to check out these ideas for entertaining the kiddos ’til the clock strikes midnight…

1. Countdown Balloons

Balloon Countdown New Year'sJust fill these fun New Year’s Countdown Balloons with activities written on notes, and then let the kids pop one each hour to find out what activity they get to do that hour. Such a fun idea!


2. Printable New Year’s Eve BINGO

NYE Printable BingoWhat kid doesn’t love Bingo, right? Get these FREE Printable Bingo Cards HERE. (TIP: We like to use clearance holiday M&Ms as markers. 😉 )


3. Saran Wrap Candy Ball Game

Saran Wrap Candy Ball GameFor this fun game, grab some friends and family and make a large saran wrap ball with layers of candy or small toys or goodies. If you still have Christmas candy around, throw it in! You’ll also need a pair of dice.

Have your group sit in a circle and decide which direction the game will flow. One person gets to peel back the layers to get to the candy until the next person rolls doubles with the pair of dice. Then it’s their turn to unwrap for candy. It’s a fun and silly game! Go here for more ideas.


4. Year-in-Review Photo Scavenger Hunt

Year in Review Photo Scavenger HuntThis Year-in-Review Photo Scavenger Hunt is such a clever way to remember the fun things that have happened throughout the year.


5. Printable Word Search

You can print a fun word search HERE.


6. Photo Memory Match Game

7. 20 Questions

    Thank you for all the wonderful ideas. My grandkids are usually in bed fast asleep. I think the latest they have ever stayed up was 11:00.

      You’re welcome! We like to do a “Noon Year’s” party, earlier in the day and then put the kids to bed. 😉
