Last New Year’s Eve, my children awoke to find balloons taped to the living room wall.
Each one had a time written on it. Every hour, on the hour, they popped one balloon, excited to see what message was hidden inside.
We had all manner of activities listed inside the balloons, from playing a board game, making a treat, running around the house banging pots and pans, to taking pictures (for which I handed out band-aids with mustaches for everyone to wear).
It was a major hit, and our kids asked for this to become a new tradition. They are curious as to what activities I might come up with this year.
What fun New Year’s traditions do you do with your children?
