This year we are going to be staying home for New Year's Eve since our kids are sick. I found this count down idea on Family Fun's website. Every hour until midnight the kids get to open a bag. I am going to set an alarm clock each hour to make sure we don't forget. I went to Michael's craft store and found a bunch of craft projects for $1 a piece. I also filled a few of the bags with treats to eat during the movies. I put noise makers and confetti in the last bag.
