New Years Eve Party Idea for Kids

Sharing is caring!

New years eve is such a fun time for our family. We always stay together as a family and celebrate… kids and all.

That is why it’s super important to us, that we make it family friendly with them in mind!

Here is one of our favorite New Years Eve party ideas for kids!

You’re going to love how easy this is and the kids think it is awesome!!

You Will Need:

Use the Balloon Time helium tank to add helium to each of the 7 balloons. I grabbed the 252 L bottle and it will air up 27-30 9 inch latex balloons.

The helium will float for 5-7 hours, easy. I can save this tank and use the rest of the helium for one of the kids upcoming birthday parties!!

Once you blow up each balloon, add the provided ribbon to it.

On each balloon, put a time. One balloon says 6:00, one says 7:00, etc.,  until you get to 12:00 (midnight).

Then, tie the balloons to the balloon weight so they will stay put on a table while you wait for the clock to change.

In the meantime, bake some cookies.

Fill the champagne flutes with milk.

(That super cute potholder came from this Etsy shop!)

Set the table with the balloons, milk, cookies, party hats, napkins, etc.

As each hour comes to pass, let one child pop that balloon.

So at 6:00 pm, pick a child to pop the 6:00 balloon. Continue as each hour comes and goes.

The kids will have a blast. Let them be a part of the celebration.

While waiting for the clock to change to the next hour, enjoy milk and cookies together.

Talk about resolutions and goals for the new year. Talk about ways the family will grow in the new year.

I promise this will be a memory your kids will remember forever.

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Balloon Time. The opinions and text are all mine.


  1. This is such a brilliant idea!! I don’t think my kids would be able to wait to pop the balloons every hour. I’d have to bribe them with the cookies, lol!

  2. Stephanie Jeannot says:

    That sounds like a whole lot of fun for kids. I think they would enjoy bringing in the new year like that.

  3. I love this creative balloon popping idea for the kids for New Years Eve. My son would love it! Of course anytime we celebrate something fun we use “champagne” flutes and milk and cookies are the perfect combo. I love Balloon Time! A great resource for any party.

  4. We usually stay in on New Year’s Eve and try to do something fun altogether, as well. I LOVE your balloon idea! It doesn’t cost an arm and a leg, but is something that will be remembered!

  5. We are going to do a “noon” year’s eve this year with cookies and milk! Last year we baked cupcakes and decorated them with sprinkles. I like the balloon ideas though – what a fun way to celebrate!

  6. This is really a great idea! The champagne flutes filled with milk is so adorable and everyone loves cookies. I wouldn’t mind attending this party myself!

  7. What fun ideas. We always celebrate the new year with the kids a few hours early so they do not have to stay up until midnight. We like having fun snacks and watching a movie.

  8. We are going to have a birthday party for NYE and would love to try some of these things with the kiddos. They look like fun. Some of them make it until midnight and some are asleep at ten. This will keep the littles entertained for the evening.

  9. I love these ideas so much!! The balloons are genius and so much fun! 🙂 I see a lot of the Noon Year ideas and they seem so fun. It’s genius! Thanks so much for sharing!

  10. I wanted to stop by and thank you for visiting the #OMHGWW last week.
