There are also a few Dark Chocolate Hershey Kisses in there for Mommy ~ LOL! The other thing I made was a New Year's Eve Wish Box. This was quite simple...all you need is a box of your choice and you can put the words "Wish Box" on the outside in whatever manner you choose. I found a purple glitter box on sale at Target and used silver glitter sticker letters and some embellishments I had. Here is the New Year's Eve Wish Box:
This is our personal version of the New Year's Eve Wishing Wall in Times Square. There is also a Virtual Wishing Wall! My hubby and I are just going to fill in the blanks to answer the questions on these great cards I found here.
Next, I made a simple NYE Scavenger Hunt. Our daughter is only 2 and a half, so I wanted the items to be things she could easily find herself or with our help.
I can hardly contain my excitement over this next item! I spent some serious time Googling a way to do this and finally found a teaching website that you can use to upload PHOTOS and create a BINGO card! I uploaded favorite photos from 2011 and created a BINGO game for NYE:
Now, I suppose I am missing all the "magic" of Christmas already: Magic Mints, Magic Reindeer Food, the Magic Pillowcase...because I went ahead and made some Magic New Year Wishing Bubbles! This is really simple ~ you just use a bottle of bubble that you already have and cover the label with any paper you would like and make a cute label that says "Magic New Year Wishing Bubbles." I also have a beautiful pewter bubble wand that I purchased from Chasing Fireflies that goes perfectly with the Magic Bubbles :)
I also wrote a little poem to go with it. Naturally, this is protected by Copyright, so please do not copy my work for any reason. You may pin it or link to it :)
