Celebrating New Year’s Eve with family can be a fun and memorable way to ring in the new year! Here are a few exciting ideas to help you plan the perfect NYE celebration with your child:
• Have a family game night
Take a break from the traditional.
• Have a family movie night
Break out the popcorn and get comfortable as you settle in to watch your family’s favorite holiday movies together. You can even make it extra special by hosting an Oscar-style awards ceremony for family members to recognize each other’s accomplishments throughout the year!
• Make some yummy treats
Nothing brings the family together like baking and cooking! Get creative in the kitchen with your child and create some festive New Year’s treats like cupcakes with sparkling gold sprinkles or colorful cookies decorated with sparkly glitter.
• Host an indoor or outdoor picnic
Take advantage of the warm weather (in most places) and get outside together! Prepare a family-friendly picnic of finger foods like sandwiches, chips, and fruit. You can also enjoy games like volleyball, badminton or frisbee while you’re at it.
• Have a family dance party
Put on your favorite tunes and show off your best dance moves to ring in the new year! If you want to make it extra fun, compete against each other in a family lip sync battle. Don’t forget to dress up in matching outfits so you can all look festive while celebrating.
• Create a time capsule
Gather items from around the house that represent memorable parts of 2020 for your family, such as photos, artwork, souvenirs from trips or virtual school assignments. Place them in a container and bury them outside (or store them away if burying isn’t possible). Unearth it next New Year’s Eve when you will be able to look back with fond memories of this past year spent together.
