On New Year’s Eve, I baby-sat for two kids and made my son and the other 4 year old their very own sprinkles kiddie drink. They also enjoyed making New Year’s crafts – a paper plate clock and a sparkly fireworks activity.
How to make the New Year’s Kiddie Drink
- plastic tumblers
- candy melts
Kiddie Cocktail with Sprinkles on the Rim
We had leftover yellow candy melts from my son’s Wubbzy birthday party but you could also use chocolate. I melted it on a small plate and then dipped the rim of the glasses into the melted chocolate. The plastic tumbler glasses are from the Dollar store.
Then, I dipped the glasses into star-shaped sprinkles. Each of their glasses were filled with a smoothie I made from a banana, vanilla yogurt, milk, and strawberry syrup. Just milk by itself would also be fun!

Paper Plate Countdown to New Year’s Clock Craft
I printed the numbers 1-12 for each child and cut them into little squares. On a paper plate, I wrote the numbers as they would appear on a clock as well as Happy New Year across the bottom. They matched each number and glued them into place. Then they had fun decorating their paper plate clocks with markers.
