Can you believe another year has flown by? A New Year’s Eve Party is not complete without some sort of noise. Sure, you can buy the whistles and an airhorn at the store, but why not get the kids involved in making their own New Year’s Eve noisemakers?!
The good news it that you probably already have many of this items laying around the house. If you don’t they are easily available at your local party or craft store. These crafts are perfect for kids aged 3 and up. The older kids may not need adult help, but for the little ones you definitely should stick around to help with the gluing.
New Year’s Eve Noisemakers You Can Make with Household Items
Paper Plate Noisemaker
Paper plate (You can pick a fun colored one or buy white ones for the kids to color or paint)
Glue Gun or Stapler
Dry beans, rice, bells, pasta
Take a paper plate and fold it in half like a taco. Insert dry beans, rice, bells and pasta in the middle. Fill it enough to make noise, but not too much where the paper plate will not close.
Hot glue the paper plate together. Make sure it’s secured so none of the contents fly out during use.
Decorate your plate using ribbon, stickers, jewels, etc. Let their creativity soar!
Clear Cups Noisemakers
Two clear cups
Duct tape or super glue (adults only)
Dry beans, rice, bells, pasta, pom-poms, googly eyes, glitter
Fill one cup with dry beans, rice, bells, pasta, pom-poms, googly eyes, glitter, and ribbon. Let your children pick what they would like inside their cup. Then place the other cup on top of the filled cup. Using duct or masking tape seal the two cups together. Adults can use super glue instead.
Kids can decorate the outside of the cup with stickers or markers if they like. Perhaps stickers indicating which year it will be would be really cute!
Popsicle Stick Noisemaker
This is a super simple craft to make. My daughter played with this one more than the others. Go figure. Simply take a small or large wooden stick and glue a large bell to it on top. Decorate the stick with ribbon or color it markers and paint. Add glitter if you wish. I’ve seen some that have three bells glued to it on the larger wooden sticks.
