How to Celebrate New Year’s Eve With Kids
Celebrating New Year’s Eve with kids can be quite different. Here are 10 ways how to celebrate the beginning of a new year with your children and still have a good time:
- Host a dinner at home.
- Have a family slumber New Year’s Eve party.
- Create a New Year’s bucket list.
- Celebrate another country’s New Year.
- Turn your Christmas tree into a “Resolution tree”.
- Look back at the old year to look forward.
- Don’t forget to have a family toast!
Why not get fancy with your family once a year and host a party at your house. Make sure to dress up, use the good china and create a special menu.
If fancy does not suit you a slumber party might be a better fit. Buy matching new year pajamas, build a fortress in front of your fireplace, or have a pillow fight. Slumber parties are so much fun!
New Years Bucket List
Every New Year’s Eve event with the family should have a bucket list. Imagine where you like to be in 2023, what you like to do, and set family goals together. Dreaming of a new year with new adventures definitely gives you something to look forward to.
Celebrate New Year From Another Country
Are your children still pretty young? You like to celebrate with them together but there is no point in keeping them up till midnight?
Then why not switch it up and celebrate the new year of another country? Choose a country with an earlier celebration and you are good to go!
Is your Christmas tree still up? So why not repurpose them this year? Take only the ornaments down and let your children hang up their resolutions instead!
Look Back to Look Forward
New Year is also a good possibility to look back on the past year and learn from it. Chat about the good times but also see if you gained anything out of bad times as well. Maybe even use this conversation to make a time capsule you can open in the future.
Have a Family Toast
But whatever you do, do not forget to have a family toast! Buy some special sparkling grape juice, get out the fancy glasses, and toast with your children to the new year!
These and more fun tips can be found here.
