The Easiest Kids New Years Eve Craft Ever!

I am so excited for New Year’s Eve this year. Along with several of our family friends, we have rented rooms at a local hotel that has a great pool for the kids. Between the five families, there will be at least 9 kiddos! For me, New Year’s Eve represents a time to reflect on the last year while looking toward the year ahead. So, I hate the idea of leaving N on a night that holds this meaning for me. But, I also love ringing in the New Year with friends. This year,I’m thrilled we get to do both!

Along with swimming, pizza eating and movie watching, I’m bringing this easy craft along to help entertain the kids. We wish you all the best in the New Year and hope you have a safe, fun evening!

New Year’s Eve Water Bottle Noise Makers


  • Water Bottles
  • Spray Paint
  • Tinsel
  • Bells
  • Sequins
  • Glitter
  • Beads
  • Paper
  • Anything Else You’d Like That Will Fit in a Water Bottle


  1.  Ahead of time, spray paint your water bottle lid to match the colors on the items you’ll be putting inside your water bottle (I did black, gold and silver).IMG_0709
  2. Add any materials you’d like. But, be sure some of them make noise like bells, beads and sequins. We did add a few puffy craft balls to muffle the sound a bit.IMG_0721
  3. If you’d like to add glitter, insert a rolled piece of paper, to serve as a funnel. Then shake the bottle and paper so the glitter works its’ way down.IMG_0716
  4. Replace lid.                                                                      IMG_0732
  5. Shake and make noise!                                                IMG_0735

Happy New Year, friends! See you in 2016.
