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.
Lay out sleeping bags in the living room. Read stories out loud and play board games late into the evening.
Toast the New Year at midnight (if your kids are still awake) with sparkling fruit cider.
Tips & Warnings
- If your kid doesn't have a favorite meal, make spaghetti with tomato sauce and serve salad on the side. This is generally a kid-pleasing meal.
