Ring in the New Year with King Julien

Christmas has came and gone! I seriously think this Christmas just flew by! Are you getting ready for NYE? Do you have kids? Did you know that Netflix launched a brand new original series with the beloved King Julien from Madagascar?

Kids are out of school so the perfect time to start watching the series on Netflix. Better yet it’s so easy to throw a little NYE party with the kiddos with stuff I’m sure you already have at home.

For your King Julien NYE party create a trail mix station for the jungle explorers. I have tons of snacks left from the holidays. Create a trail mix station using stuff in your pantry.  I simply put them in plastic containers that I already owned. The great thing about this is they have lids so clean up is a snap! Just put lid on and put back in pantry!


For the trail mix station I created a jungle tablescape by just adding artificial plants from around the house. Yes, I had all the camo as well. Remember I am a retired Marine. You may not have that but just use earth tone colors and use any burlap you may have.

For the labels I had Madison collect some leaves from the backyard and I used a Sharpie to label items.

Kids NYE party

Let the kids fill their plastic bags and snack on while streaming King Julian. Don’t forget the party hats and noise makers. The kiddos can ring in the new year with another time zone. Check out what time it is in Madagascar!
