Party planning NYE 2020

I certainly did not make the best photo booth last year, but it was still really fun! Grab some cute props and a backdrop for fun photos and memories!
Kid Friendly Entertainment
- Play a live concert on the TV! Almost as fun as being there 🙂
- Set up a music circle with bongos and instruments for the kids to play
- Download the Go Noodle app and set up a dance party for the kids
- Have the kids make vision boards for 2020. Set up a table with glue sticks and photos already ready for them so they can just grab what they like and glue it to a poster board.
- Adult vision boards are fun too! All you need is poster boards, magazines, scissors and glue sticks.
- Sparklers are always a favorite of mine to do outside with the kids! They are dangerous so an adult should really hold it for them or at least supervise depending on the age.
- NYE Gift exchange. These are always fun if you ask the kids to bring one un opened christmas toy that they want to give away and the kids can swap gifts.
