Looking for an easy game to entertain your kids on New Year’s Eve? I’ve got you covered with this fun New Year’s word search!
All you have to do is print and play. It couldn’t be easier!
This year we had to change our plans.
We couldn’t have a big family gathering like we usually do on New Year’s Eve. It’s been hard, but it doesn’t mean that we cannot still have fun and make it an exciting night for the little ones at home.
We were looking for an easy activity that would keep the kids busy for a while because they can get really impatient.
First, I made this New Year’s Coloring Countdown, and then I created this word search.
There are 20 celebratory words hidden in this game.
Most of them can be found vertically and horizontally, but some are hidden diagonally to make it a little trickier.
This word search is perfect for elementary-school-aged kids and older. You can also let the youngest ones participate by making them find letters.
And thinking of the little ones, I’ve drawn some balloons and stars so that they can use this printable as a coloring page as well.
As you can tell, this printable New Year word search is not only perfect for your family game nights but also class parties, playgroups, church groups, and of course, New Year’s Eve parties!
You can also use it at your virtual parties if you have to celebrate with your family over a video call. To make it more animated, turn it into a little competition to see who can find all the words the quickest.
Sounds like an exciting activity to try, right?
Just send everyone a link to this post and tell them to download the printable game at the bottom of the page.
