Make New Year's Eve Countdown Bags (via dollarstorecrafts.com)

How do you celebrate on New Year's Eve?  Whether you are having a gathering of your peers or just hanging out at home with your family, this idea from Amy at The Idea Room is a great way to add a little excitement to the evening!  After making a bag to represent each hour leading up to the new year, she wrote out a list of activities and put a slip of paper with each activity into a bag.  As the current year draws to a close, a bag is opened at each corresponding hour, and everyone participates in the activity enclosed.  This is a great idea for parties of all kinds because the activities can be adjusted so that they are appropriate for whatever group of people is playing along!  [how to make New Year's Eve countdown bags]
