Celebrating the start of a new year was always a ton of fun when my kids were little. Preschool New Year’s Activities, like the ones below, are the best at involving kids in the fun of the countdown tradition!
Don’t worry though, all of the activities below can be done much earlier in the day. In fact, one of our favorite preschool New Year’s hacks was to celebrate at noon instead of midnight. It gave the kids a chance to have a blast, but guaranteed that we weren’t navigating bedtime with tired little ones at midnight!
