Children's New year party must haves!


Whether you are you hosting a New Year party on the night of the big drop, or a pre New Year party a couple of days beforehand, we have all your new year party essentials sorted to make the kids have a great time, even if they cannot stay up until midnight.

Mock countdown

If you are hosting young children at your new years party, and you are celebrating early, or the kids just get too sleepy to stay up late, host a mock countdown! Set the clock back, close the doors and windows to make it dark just like it would be at night. Hand out sparklers to light and get them to countdown out loud until the clock reaches "midnight". Then have them scream "happy new year" like its the real thing. See their eyes light up when they get to the 'new year'.

Photo booth and dress up

A great activity for your kids new years party is to put together a photobooth and fancy dress area. They can put on hats, feather scarves and moustaches before having their pictures taken with an instant camera. They can then keep the photo as a small gift from the party.

New years kids table

Make the kids feel grown up with their own table decorated to suit the theme of New years. Hire our black and purple ghost chairs, as well as our black, sparkly chiffon tablecloth to place on top of our mini trestle table. Balloons, glitter and sparklers will tie off the theme. Place activities such as colouring books and crayons on the table allowing the kids hours of entertainment as the night continues until midnight.

We hope you enjoyed our New Year's party tips and tricks! From everyone at Mini Party People, we would like to wish you a happy and safe new year.
