Family Fun Ideas for your Next Party


We had so much fun celebrating New Year’s this year with my family.  My daughter was even old enough to stay up and enjoy in the fun this year.  She was so excited!    My sister in law was so sweet and brought some photo props for a little photo booth session with everyone.  We cracked each other up and laughed so hard.  My daughter was the funniest with her poses… check her out.

Minute to Win It Family Fun Games for New Year's Eve 

The other thing that we a big hit was our Minute to Win It Games for our family. Of course my daugther had her own games she created too.  


New Year's Eve Activities for Kids 

Here are a few that were our favorites…

Stack the Cup
Using 27 plastic cups stack them using only one hand in a pyramid in a minute.    

Baby Blocks
Balance a plate on your head and stack about 5 children's building block on it. The stack needs to be balanced without falling for about 3 seconds to win.

Suck It Up
Using a straw suck up the M&M's. The M&M's need to transported to one of four straws standing vertically. At least one M&M candy needs to be balanced on these flexible straws.

Noodling Around
Using an uncooked strand of spaghetti in mouth you pick up 6 pieces of penne pasta. Be careful to avoid using hands or if the uncooked spaghetti strand breaks the game is lost.

Very fun! I like the idea of a spaghetti and pasta game. Was penne pasta cooked or uncooked?

Thanks Maryanne and Raising a Happy Child! We had lots of fun. To answer your question they were both uncooked dry pasta.

I love your ideas! I love your idea! I've used it in my children's church class for a lesson on the tower of Babel, which I blogged about here: I used one of your images on my blog, but I credited and linked to your blog, so I hope you're ok with it. If not, let me know: tobilayton at yahoo dot com. Thanks!
