Toddler Celebrations: New Year's

Activities

Hold an early celebration.  Your child probably won't last until midnight (and you probably wouldn't want him to), so before his bedtime, go ahead and celebrate the start of the new year.  Count down from 10 to 1 and shout, "Happy New Year!"  You could also blow into noisemakers, toss confetti, or sip grape juice.

Crafts

Confetti Art: Lay out a sheet of clear contact paper sticky-side-up for your child.  Let him sprinkle confetti onto the paper, then lay another sheet of contact paper over the top.  Store-bought confetti will work, but you can also make your own with colored paper and a hole punch.

Books

How Do You Say It Today, Jesse Bear?, by Nancy White Carlstrom (This is not a New Year's specific book, but goes through 12 months' worth of ways to say, "I love you"--a good introduction to the year to come.)
