New Year's Eve craft activity. Countdown to the New Year with this fun to make - and fun to celebrate - craft. Kids can make their own New Year's Eve ball and have fun with their own drop just like the New York Times Square ball drop! Use crystals, sequins, or even glitter to embellish and make it sparkle. All you will need are scissors, glue, rubber band, and dowel/chopstick. I have included two sizes: big to use with a dowel, and small to use with take-away chopsticks. PLEASE NOTE that it comes pre-designed in gold and silver AND a black and white templates in BOTH sizes for your kids to color their own. FREE coloring pages, too.
Clear and simple step-by-step directions with pictures to show the kids how to assemble them. Helpful tip: wooden dowels can be found at Michael's (15pcs) for $2.99 to use with the bigger NYE balls. You can also ask your local Chinese restaurant for take-away chopsticks for the smaller size NYE balls. Two options for your use!
All my crafts and activities are purposefully designed to be fun, easy to accomplish without taking too much classroom time (most are 4-6 steps), and incorporate multiple fine motor skills to help the kids practice and improve the small muscles of the hand, hand and eye coordination, depth perception, and grip. As you will see in the pictures, my daughter demonstrates various steps for how your kids can do it, too.
