Maybe silly string wasn't a good idea...

We do countdown clock bags for the kids for New Yrs.  DD cuts out circles and makes clock faces and then draws the hands for each time. We start at 6pm and go until midnight. Each hour there is a bag and towards the end it's each half hour. I fill them with glasses, necklaces, sparklers, noise makers and the final bag is silly string.

Well, I'm still finding silly string stuck to the hard wood floor even as of today LOL Guess I need to clean them again.

It's worth it to see them have so much fun but we had TONS of confetti, silly string and balloons all over the house.

Did you make a mess on New Years?

What a great idea!  We didn't do anything but had a dance party and some fun snacks and apple cider.

That is a cute idea. We didn't do anything like that. We just watched a live showing of the fireworks at WDW. It was pretty cool.

That's so fun!  We did have confetti at the New Year's Eve Lock-In I went to with our youth, and we did spend about an hour cleaning the building before we left in the morning.
