New Year’s Eve with kids? Try this DIY countdown match game

Spending New Year's Eve with kids? This DIY memory match-game uses your favorite photographs of the year as a family-friendly countdown activity!

This year, we’re celebrating New Year’s Eve with my sister and her family, and between the two of us, we have five children under the age of six. Obviously, our celebrations won’t include copious amounts of champagne.

This fun little DIY match game is tons of fun if you’re spending New Year’s Eve with kids. Just print out photos of your 2015 highlights and make a simple memory game that the whole family can play.

Not only is it a great group game, but it’s also a cute way to remember the best parts of the previous year—perfect as you count down to midnight (or nine, if you set your clocks so that it looks like it’s approaching midnight but you don’t want overtired kids the next morning).

When you’re done playing, you can hang the cards up as a fun display to remember the highlights of 2015. Then, put them away and save them for next year to add a 2016 set!
