New Years Eve is often a holiday that is more for adults than children. However, it doesn’t have to be this way. There are so many fun things you can do together. Whether you celebrate New Years Eve around the world or practice the countdown, you’ll love these fun things to do this New Years Eve with family.
Ways for Families to Celebrate New Years Eve
Celebrate New Years Around the World
Did you know that you can watch live feeds from around the world? Some news stations, such as CNN, broadcast these feeds so that you can watch people around the world ring in the New Year. It’s such a fun thing to do with the family. Not only can kids celebrate New Years Eve, even if they have to go to bed early, but they can experience other cultures. Plus, who’s going to get tired of watching fireworks displays?
Pop Some “Bubbly”
Of course the kids can’t have sparkling wine, but there are many sparkling juices to choose from. Sparkling apple or white grape is the most popular because they come the closest to resembling champagne. Not to mention, if your kids spill the drink, it’s less likely to stain. If your kids are going to be up to ring in the New Year, why not let them enjoy a bit of bubbly? You can even find plastic wine glasses so that you don’t have to worry about your good ones getting broke.
Practice the Countdown
If it’s your child’s first New Years Eve celebration, practice counting down to the New Year. It can be a great way to teach small children to count backwards. If your children are still too young to stay up until midnight, they can still have fun practicing. You can even set the clock forward to make them think it’s the New Year.
Share Your Resolutions
Last, but not least, share your resolutions with each other. This is fun for families that have older kids. Everyone can go around the room and list what they hope to accomplish in the new year. You can even give each other pointers for sticking to your resolutions.
New Year’s Eve doesn’t have to be reserved for adults. There are so many fun things you can do together as a family. Whether it’s practicing the countdown or popping some “bubbly” your family can have fun together this New Year’s Eve.
