New Year's Eve Confetti Kids' Craft

Throw some confetti—it’s New Year’s Eve! While my son is a bit beyond being impressed by confetti (very little impresses a 13-year-old), it is a former holiday favorite. But, I don’t really love the idea of spending money on confetti. Instead, we always made out own. This holiday art activity encourages your child to use his eye-hand coordination skills and get creative, making a confetti collage!

When kids get into those preschool safety scissors years, cutting paper becomes a super-fun way to pass the time. Seriously, I would give my son a magazine and let him have at it for what seemed like hours (probably it was more like minutes, but it did occupy him and help to build his fine motor skills). I also used this tactic with some of the children who I taught art to. When I’d have a rather rowdy student I’d hand over a pair of scissors and some scrap paper. It’s a constructive way to refocus a child’s energy and let him get creative. It also creates a mound of confetti!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

·        A child-friendly magazine and/or other paper such as tissue, construction paper or card stock

·        A piece of poster board or card stock paper

·        Safety scissors

·        Clear-drying school glue

·        A paintbrush, paper towel or sponge – This is to spread the glue out on the paper. Try a combo to make it more fun for your child.

Here’s What to Do:

1.     Cut the magazines or paper into confetti. Have your child make a mound of paper strips and shapes.

2.     Squeeze a golf ball-sized pool of glue onto the paper.

3.     Spread the glue out over the paper. Your child can paint it across or wipe it with a paper towel or sponge.

4.     Celebrate New Year’s and throw the confetti! This is a great way to kick off the holiday or have a noon-year’s eve celebration. As your child tosses the confetti over the paper it will stick to the glue, creating a colorful collage.
