You have survived a full year of many emotions. It’s time to refresh and get ready for a brand new year. New Year’s Eve is such a fun night to celebrate, but sometimes the events seem a little more directed towards adults. Plan some fun and family-friendly New Year’s Eve activities for the kids to participate in at your party with these ideas.
If you’re at home go ahead and get fancy still. You will feel like you are getting to do something even if you are just hanging out at home. The kids will like if they get to wear special clothes and feel like something is going on rather than just feeling like they are stuck at home.
If you don’t have a way to do karaoke just have a sing-along to your favorite family tunes. Putting on a little show will be fun for the kids and enjoyable for you and your husband as well as other family that is visiting.
Hot Chocolate Bar
This is a kid friendly bar that the whole party will love. You can never go wrong with hot chocolate, especially during a cold winter night. Add different marshmallows, whip cream, sprinkles, and caramel to make a delicious treat.
Plan a fireworks display in your neighborhood. Make sure the adults handle the fireworks. Wrap up in blankets with your hot chocolate and watch as a family.
Everyone loves a dance party! Play some fun songs and teach your kids some of your favorite dance moves. You can even set up the Wii or Xbox and have a Just Dance competition. Even the adults will want to join.
New Year’s Eve is the perfect night to cuddle up and roast marshmallows. Talk about your favorite memories from the past year and have each family member share their goals for the year to come.
Again even if you’re just at home you can have an awesome and fun experience. Decorate with Christmas lights and shiny streamers. The whole family will love the atmosphere.
Even if it’s just sparkling grape juice for the kids they will love the special feeling they get when they see that they get to cheers with a special fizzy drink of their own. You and your hubby can enjoy the good stuff, along with any party guests!
Put the Kids to Bed
It doesn’t have to be midnight to celebrate. Pretend it’s New Year’s Eve and let the kids pop their party poppers and scream and holler. After they go to bed, adults can enjoy the rest of the night, even if it’s just you and your hubby.
Celebrate New Year’s Eve with your kids and help them celebrate all the fun to come with activities like these for the whole family! No matter what, make sure it’s as stress-free and memorable as possible. Do you have any fun family activities for New Year’s Eve? Please share with us in the comments below.
