New Year is celebrated with great zeal in Abu Dhabi. Since kids can’t stay awake till midnight, therefore, parents look for ideas to make them aware of this widely celebrated one-day event at their own level.
Many kids schools in Abu Dhabi follow the New Year theme to bring a lot of fun and color to the classrooms. You can perform these fun things with your little ones on New Year’s Day at home and keep them entertained throughout the day.
1. Firework painting:
For this painting activity, you need a card sheet, paint color, and some glitter. Draw scattered lines like the firework with different paint colors and add shimmer to give it a celebration look.
2. Countdown balloon:
Since they have already missed the midnight countdown, but still you can show them how it is enjoyed by the elders on New Year’s Eve.
Fill the balloons will confetti and blow the balloon. Ask the kids to start the countdown from 10 to 1 and when the clock strikes 12:00 (definitely it’s the fake one), then pop the balloon.
3. Bake a New Year cake:
The Best Nursery in Abu Dhabi is the one that involves learning in all activities the kids perform. You can bake a New Year cake with your kid and teach them the concept of measurement, counting and much more through baking.
4. New Year smoothie ideas:
Make delicious smoothies to drink during the New Year countdown. The bright and colorful smoothies are appealing for the kids and healthy too. Blend strawberries and peaches together to make a yummy smoothie. You can also blend some strawberries and bananas to make a classic smoothie combo. Chocolate, blueberries, and peach carrot smoothies can also be served as per kid’s tastes and liking.
5. New Year photo booth:
Dress up the kids for a New Year and make memories together. Together with kids you can make a photo booth using cardboard and decorate it. Ask the kids to take a few pictures as the modern kids are quite technology-friendly.
6. New Year’s Sensory bin:
The sensory bin is a perfect hands-on activity to keep the kids entertained during the New Year day. To make a sensory bin, look around the house and collect things with different colors, textures, and shapes. For instance, to make a New Year sensory bin, you can add confetti, glitter, pompom, balloon, beads, party caps, whistle, and put foam numbers 2020.
7. New year’s edible horns:
Take ice cream cones and dip it in white chocolate then roll it in multicolored sprinkles and chocolate sprinkles. Add some fondant on the tip of the cone to give a look of the horn mouthpiece. It is completely edible so kids can enjoy it.
