GLENVIEW, Ill. -- Families ushered in the new year a little earlier than midnight on Thursday at the Kohl’s Children’s Museum.

Face paint, hair styling, crafts and more created an upbeat atmosphere as kids reflected on the year gone by.

A DJ kept the kids rocking straight through the afternoon.

The museum threw two parties Thursday afternoon, each with about 400 people.
