What is Noon Year’s Eve?

A Noon Years Eve party is a party that celebrates the new year during the day. Party guests countdown to noon instead of counting down to midnight on New Year’s Eve. Noon Year Eve parties are perfect for families with younger children, toddler party ideas, or New Year’s Eve party for families who want to stay home or not stay up too late.

Think of a Noon Years Eve as a New Year’s Eve early countdown, which is perfect for new year’s activities for preschoolers and new year’s activities for toddlers (or if you just want to do New Years with kids!

You can count down to 12 p.m. instead of 12 a.m and no one gets tired or grumpy!

This is one of my favorite creative family and kid friendly New Year’s Eve events for little kids!

What time should a New Years party start?

You may be wondering what time should New Years Eve party start for a noon countdown. The answer depends on if you’re having the NYE party with just immediate family or if you’re having a full kids New Year party. If it’s just family, you can start when everyone gets up and gets ready. For a Noon Year’s Eve party, start at around 10:30 or 11, countdown to noon, and then end the party around 1.

Add the resolutions and pictures to a time capsule like this to be opened at next year’s Noon Year Eve party. (I love the New Year time capsule for activities for at home new years eve party!)

9. Use photo backdrops or fun photo props like this and different selfie stations (or TikTok stations) for kids to record their Happy Noon Year party.
