Staying up to greet the New Year hasn’t been our thing for years now. Instead we celebrate with the kids at noon on New Year’s Day.
Each year we play games and have fun with some fizzy science as we count down the minutes until 12:00.
This year we are adding a few New Year’s games like these pom-pom races.

Kids New Years Game
To give your pom-pom races a festive feel you will need a Party Blowout for each participant. These are easy to find at local party supply stores or even the dollar store.
You will also need pom-poms. These Sparkly Pom-Poms are perfect!
Decide where your race will be held.
The length of a table is great if adults will be playing, too. Or, you might choose to race on the floor.
Use a piece of tape to mark your starting point and your finish line. If you are racing on a table you could make the finish line the edge of the table, with the first pom-pom off the end winning.
The rules are simple: using only your party blower, blow the pom-pom across the finish line. The first one to cross the line wins!
This game is perfect for working on breath control and sensory integration.
Want to make the New Year’s game a bit harder? Have older kids and adults keep their hands behind their backs.
