For lots of people, the New Year celebration is going to be a little different this year. There aren’t going to be large events with huge crowds, and there probably won’t be too many parties.

To be honest, as a parent, this is not too far too from normal for us – we usually stay at home anyway, haha. We might have sparklers in the backyard with a BBQ, watch the fireworks on TV or walk to the top of the hill where we can see the them going off across the city of Sydney from a distance (although they look pretty tiny from the edge of the mountains).

You can celebrate the New Year at home with your kids by making one of these free printable 2021 party hats. They could also work as a kids’ table craft for a group gathering, or you could even make them to wear for a New Year zoom party (this would work out best if everyone printed one and made it in advance).

There are four alternative designs to choose from, although only one has been pictured as made.
