How to Have Fun on New Year’s Eve With Kids
Oh my goodness, I cannot believe the new year is almost here. It seems like this year just went by so fast. As a mom of three, it is not always easy to go to every holiday party as I did before I had children. Because of this, I love coming up with things I can do with my children.
Being a mom has taught me how to incorporate fun holiday activities so my children can enjoy them just as much as I do. New Year’s Eve is quickly approaching, and I want to make it very special for my children. These fun activities will help you have a fun New Year’s Eve with your kids!
Write a List of What You want to Accomplish For the New Year
New Year’s resolutions are not just for adults, they can be for your children as well. I think it is so important to give your children goals to work towards every year. The goals can be simple or more complex (depending on the age).
It can be goals like a three-year-old learning all of his/her ABCs or a 8-year-old who wants to become a better gymnast. Either way, goals give your children something to work for and look forward to in the new year.
Have a New Years Eve Party
Who doesn’t love a fun holiday party? Celebrating the new year can be super fun for your kids. You can have a dance party and have all of your kid’s favorite snacks and food. You can also get New Years’ photo props and take fun pictures with one another. Going into the new year is a big deal and celebrating should not only be for adults.
Drink Sparkling Soda or Cidar
The new year is associated with drinking alcohol to celebrate. but you can get a bottle of sparkling soda or cider for your little ones. You can also get fancy plastic cups to make it even more special for them. I know my daughter will think she is so fancy while drinking her sparkling soda.
A great way to bond with your family on New Year’s Eve is to play games. Playing games is an awesome tradition to do every year. My kids love any type of game and it makes them so happy to create fun memories with one another.
New Year’s Eve Craft
Art and Crafts are always a fun option for kids, especially during the holidays. There are endless possibi!lities your child can do and make to celebrate the new year. The goal is to allow your children to have fun and create something special
Look at Pictures from the Ougoing Year
Every year I love looking at the pictures of the outgoing year. My kids and I love to look at the fun memories that we had together. It also makes me so sad to see how much my children have grown over the past year.
Also, whenever you have a moment, take pictures. Take pictures of all the sweet moments with your children. These pictures mean the world to me when I look back on them.
Take a New Picture for the New Year
Of course, you need one last picture of the outgoing year. This picture is a representation of where you are now and where you are going in the new year. Taking a picture allows you to remember that moment and all the fun you had together.
Of course, you need to have a countdown for your kids. You can still incorporate a New Year’s Eve countdown for your children even if they have a specific bedtime. You can push the clock up close to 12 and have your own personal countdown with your children. They will feel so excited to be able to participate in the New Years’ Eve countdown tradition that we as adults all love.
Along with the countdown, of course, you need party crackers to celebrate the new year! I think this will be the most exciting part of celebrating New Year’s Eve with your children.
New Year’s is a special time for everyone. If going out is not an option you can always celebrate at home with your children. These types of memories last forever and it is something that will be very special for everyone. I hope you have a fun New Year!
