New Year’s at Noon/Creative Discovery Museum
When my kids were little, we did this every year. That way, they got to celebrate New Year’s and get excited about starting a new year, even when they had no concept of what that mean, and I got to put them to bed early. Winner! There are plenty of things to do from crafts including noise makers to use in the parade, live music and of course the toast to the New Year at Noon with apple juice.
