New Year's Eve for kids ... at noon

Published December 27. 2012 4:00AM

Kids can celebrate New Year's Eve without actually staying up 'til midnight, thanks to the Children's Museum of Southeastern Connecticut's annual "Countdown to Noon." This year's runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday, with the ball drop at noon. The festivities include games, songs and more. (The museum, by the way, is open from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, in addition to its regular weekly schedule beyond that.)

The Public Library of New London, too, its doing a Countdown to New Year's Party from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday. So plenty of chances for the younguns to get into the Auld Lang Syne spirit.
