We were invited to a kid-friendly New Year's Eve party in our neighborhood and I volunteered to bring the favors, but the pickings were pretty slim at the dollar store. This was all they had for hats:
- party hats, one for each guest plus a few extra
- brass fasteners
- number stickers (or you could write the numbers by hand)
- pom poms
- scissors and hot glue
|The numbers are crooked because the kids helped (lie).|

P. Bear's New Year's Party: A Counting Book P. Bear has invited his friends to a New Year's party. Every time the clock strikes the hour, that many animals show up to the party. This is a great one for counting and as an introduction to telling time. It also is a great way to get kids excited about the "countdown". The illustrations are simple black, white, and red.
The Grouchy Ladybug The Grouchy Ladybug argues over aphids for breakfast with a friendly ladybug. The Grouchy Ladybug wants to fight, but backs down and says he wants to fight somebody bigger. The animals he encounters get larger and larger, but the Grouchy Ladybug continues looking for an animal to fight. Eventually he's smacked by a whale's tail and lands right back where he started. Tired, hungry, and wet, the Grouchy Ladybug learns how nice it can be to share. Each page tells (and shows) the time. We've done a project for this book.
It's About Time! This book shows each hour of the day on a digital and analog clock and connects it to an activity that would be typical in a young child's life. It's a good, basic introduction to telling time.
Have a safe and happy New Year's Eve!
