New Years Eve Bags

Every year that we are home on New Years Eve, we have clock bags that we open on the hour. Sometimes we start in the afternoon and go til midnight and others we start early in the day and end at normal bedtime so those that want to go to bed early can and not miss any fun!

There is sometimes a riddle or just an activity in each bag and the kids open them on the hour. This years theme is Disney! The first bag will open at 9AM and go until 9 PM! This year I gave myself a budget of $50 and I am happy to say I went under budget! ( I am red boxing the game and dvd this year since the kids got SO much for Christmas!)
Here are all our bags ready to begin Saturday morning!

Bag #1

9 AM bag Good Morning Friends! Rise and Shine, its the last day of the year. Lets Celebrate Disney Style! Enjoy your pancakes in the shape of everyone favorite Mouse and think of some New “Ears” Resolutions.

We will eat Mickey shaped pancakes and I made a printable for everyone to list 3 "New Ears" Resolutions.

Bag #2

10AM bag Hidden Mickeys are fun to find ! There are Hidden Mickeys outside waiting for you. Try to find as Many as you can. There is something extra special inside!

We will hide 20 Easter eggs with Mickey Ears on them and quarters inside and send the kids out to find them. I think I am going to make a rule everyone can only find 5 since there are 20. Sweet Esther will let everyone take her eggs if I don't!

Bag #3

11AM Bag New Games are always fun especially when we don't know What Character you might be. Lets play and see who is the best guesser!

We bought the game Head Banz to play!
