Fun at Home on New Year’s Eve

Sometimes the best party is an evening right at home in comfy pajamas. Here are a few ideas for New Year’s Eve Family Fun around the house:

  • Make Individual Year’s Resolution list. Reread old resolutions, talk about what was achieved and reflect on the year.
  • Have a Dance Party. Play music, add a glow bracelet and necklace and dance the night away.
  • Play Family Game Night with Board Games, Puzzles, or a Card Game. Talk about all the best things that happened this year as you play games.
  • Watch a YouTube.com New Year’s Eve Countdown video. Pop Party Poppers, blow party horns, drink apple juice, countdown to the New Year and be in bed by 8:00 PM.

From all of us at KZOOkids.com, we wish you and your family a happy and safe New Year’s Eve.
