Even on Boxing Day my children wanted to do some crafting! Luckily we were at home so we were able to raid our craft supplies to make some sweet confetti boxes for New Year’s Eve.
There’s no way my children will be staying up to see in the New Year but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to mark it in some way. Stay tuned for a couple more New Year’s crafts I’ll be sharing this week.
Equipment needed to make New Year’s confetti boxes:
plain match boxes
assortment of coloured paper
How to make New Year’s confetti boxes:
This is a really quick and easy craft so just use whatever you have to hand. We made our own paper confetti using paper punches, a hole punch and an assortment of coloured paper and card, the shinier the better.
Make enough paper confetti to fill your match box.
Decorate your box with words, the year, or stickers.
The idea is that on New Year’s Eve you can celebrate by throwing your confetti in the air. I’m going to let my children throw theirs before bedtime but I’m sure it won’t be too long before they want to stay up with us.
