New Years Crafts

These New Years crafts are an awesome way to help ring in the new year. It's a ton of fun to have confetti flying when the clock strikes midnight.

We've created a home-made confetti launcher - all you have to do is fill it with your favourite confetti and you are ready for the stroke of midnight. 

When the time comes, it's also great to have some noise-makers too.

We've created some other great new years crafts for kids ideas, including home-made noise-makers (filled with candies!)

For now, let's start with our confetti launcher - what better way to say "Happy New Years" then make a sparkly mess!

New Years Crafts: Confetti Launcher

Craft Supplies:

  • Paper roll
  • Craft foam
  • Tissue paper
  • Paint
  • Paint brush
  • Glitter paint
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Time to Complete:

  • 15-20 minutes, plus drying time

Age Range:

  • 3 years old and up

Step #1:

Paint your paper roll in your desired color. We chose white because we wanted out glitter paint colors to stand out.

Step #2:

Once your paper roll is dry, add your glitter glue. The more layers of glitter you add, the more sparkly your roll will be. 

Set it aside to dry.

Step #3:

Cut out a piece of craft foam in a circle - add some wavey cuts to it for extra jazz. Be sure to pick a color that matches your roll. 

Glue this piece to the bottom of the roll. 

Step #4:

Find your favourite confetti and fill your tube. We picked some hearts and random pieces of tissue paper.

You can even add wrapped candy for a bit of extra fun!

Step #5:

Add some jagged cut tissue paper to the top of your roll. Glue it around the inside top. 

You can choose to bend down the tissue paper gently to somewhat hold in your confetti, or like us just leave it up ready to launch.

Now that we have these new years crafts all set to launch. Just set them out for the celebration. 

When the clock strikes midnight just throw up all the confetti!

HAPPY NEW YEARS!!
