Family, Fun. Games, and A Rocking New Year!!!

Many people will find different ways to bring in the new year. Some will go to church with there family. Some will have a nice party. Or some will get dressed up and go out on the town. So what should you do if you want to have a fun filled family only New Year's Eve party right in the comforts of your own home. Just some family bonding time as you watch the years change. Some time you do not want to go out and about in the hustle and bustle of the city's party goers. Well I say be creative and party the night away right at your home with your children.

Here are some items to get you started on your New Years Eve Party Adventure:
  • First allow you children to help you come up with a party food menu. Something that everyone can participate in. Then prepare away.
  • of course you will need party hats and noise makers, no party is complete without a little noise.
  • Sparkling Cider or sparkling grape juice and plastic wine glasses to toast in the new year.
  • balloons
  • alarm clock
  • paper and pen
  • board games or card games
  • music
  • movies
  • Great ideas
First decide on a time you want your celebration to begin. 9:00 or 9:30 is a great time in order to get all of your fun activities in.

So let begin the party.
first decide if you want to do a different activity every 30mins or every hour. and determine if you want to watch a family movie first or even play a board game and then around 10 start the fun filled party. To ensure that the family will be woke for the New Year. Once you have come up with the time frame. then sit down with family and on small pieces of paper write down a different activity write enough to pass the time.

For example  on a piece of paper you may write talent show. charades, scavenger hunt, or any game that your family can make up.
once you have wrote down all your ideas, blow up a balloon and put the papers inside. tie it and write a time with a marker on the outside. Hang the balloons up according to the time. when you get to that time POP the balloon and do the activity inside. This will help keep the family entertained as they wait for the new year.

Don't Forget to set the alarm!!! or simply tune in on local TV stations to watch the ball drop.
No matter what you decide to do the object is to enjoy each other and to bring in the New Year with love, laughter and fun. Get Excited And Happy New Year!!!!

  1. Great ideas! I also heard that netflix has a 3 minute countdown that you can start at anytime so you can countdown with the kids earlier if need be!
