How to Celebrate New Year's Eve With Your Children


Throw a party and celebrate with your kids, letting them stay up until the new year dawns.

Things You'll Need

  • Confettis
  • Streamers
  • Party Hats
  • Pillows
  • Cake Mix
  • Spaghetti Noodles
  • Spaghetti Sauces
  • Cake Pans
  • Noisemakers
  • Sleeping Bags
  • Help your kids decorate a room in your house. Hang streamers, scatter confetti and set out party hats and noisemakers.

  • Bake a cake.

  • Dress up in party clothes.

  • Prepare the kids' favorite dinner and eat the cake for desert. Put candles on the cake and blow them out in recognition of the birthday of a new year.

  • Teach the kids the words to "Auld Lang Syne," and sing other songs with them as well.

  • Explain the concept of New Year's resolutions to your children. Ask them if there is anything they would like to accomplish in the next year.
