New Years Crafts for Kids

 Re-create these new years crafts for kids to make your very own noisemakers. They will even come with a surprise treat to enjoy after the stroke of midnight!

New years is a time for a fresh start. A brand new year!

Most people will create a new years resolution to take affect at the stroke of midnight.

Others just enjoy a fresh start and remember the memories of the previous year.

Use these noisemakers to help bring in the new year with a lot of noise.

It is customary to make as much noise as you can when the clock strikes midnight.

These new years crafts for kids will also have an added tasty treat, and can be used as decorations for the rest of the evenings' partying. 

New Years Surprise Noisemakers

Let's get the noisemakers ready for the big night! Don't forget these can be used for other big events too!

Craft Supplies:

  • Two styrofoam cups
  • Glitter glue
  • Paint brush
  • Regular glue
  • Pipecleaners (sparkly preferred)
  • Scissors
  • A surrpise treat (like skittles)

Step #1:

Paint your glitter glue all over both of your cups.

We managed to find a glitter with all different sizes of sparkles in it. Works great for the occasion!

Step #2:

Take your pipecleaners and cut them all in equal halves.

This way each end of your noisemaker will have the same colors and lengths of pipe cleaners.

Step #3:

Twist all of your pipe cleaners into a bundle. Twist the end together tight enough so it is about the size of one pipe cleaner.

Twirl each end with your finger or a pen.

Step #4:

Using the tips of your scissors (carefully) punch a hole in the bottom of each cup.

Place each of your pipe cleaner bunches into each hold.

Step #5:

Bend the pipe cleaners on the inside of the cup, so they will stay in place.

Fill with your surprise treat.

Glue the two cups together.

Once these new years crafts for kids are dry, get ready to make some noise!!
