    • Noise Makers – Come make a noise maker for our Noon-Year’s Eve Countdown.
    • Party Hats– Join us in one of our community rooms to make and decorate a party hat!
  • Math Matters (10:30am): Countdown Clock > Let’s count from 1-10 and then back down again from 10-1! Children will use various materials such as buttons, beads, and other manipulatives to practice their counting skills, learn one to one correspondence, and the ability to count backwards which will be a useful skill to use for our Noon-Year’s eve countdown.

Grown-up Tip: When your child sees the New Year’s Eve ball and asks, “What’s that?” don’t give a quick answer. Try asking: “what do you think it is?” Explore the object together using descriptive words to determine what it is. This allows your child to experiment with ideas and use critical thinking skills. They will get a thrill once they see the clock strike midnight and the ball light up. Explain to them the symbolism of the ball drop and if you don’t know it yourself – look it up and learn together!
