The January Writing Prompts Calendar is ready to go. I reworked the very first calendar that I offered last year (as a survey freebie), since only a tiny handful of y’all received it. If you are among the two dozen who got one last year, I bet your kiddos won’t even remember that they’ve already seen some of these prompts. ;)

If you already get my post updates in your email, just look for the button at the bottom of your next email to get your freebie. For best results, adjust your printer settings to borderless or whole page.

If you are not a subscriber, simply click here and enter your email address. You will receive a post update each day, and will automatically get every subscriber freebie I create from here on out.

New Year’s Eve Activities for Kids

New Year's Eve Activities for Kids

We’ve always spent New Year’s Eve at home with our kids. They are night owls, so staying up until midnight has never been a problem. We have a yummy appetizer dinner (this is my fave), play a game or two, and ring in the new year with noisemakers, confetti, & sparkling grape juice.

Some of our favorite New Year’s Eves were when we had all the cousins over to spend the night. Around 10:00, when everyone started to get a little bored, we would cover the living room floor with bubble wrap and let everyone go crazy. It was So LOUD, but super fun. One year we taped a plastic tablecloth to the ceiling and filled it with balloons and confetti. I think we were still finding confetti at Easter!

This year, we will be continuing the bubble wrap stomp-a-thon, playing Minute to Win It games, and munching on fried pickles.

I’ve rounded up some fun New Year’s Eve Activities for you to enjoy with your kids!
