December 31st brings us a lot to celebrate. The memories of the previous 364 days, the coming of a new year and for some – saying good-bye to a crappy year. If you’re reading this then you’re probably wondering what to do New Years Eve. There are tons of options, but which one is right for you? Let’s take a look at our options, shall we?

What to Do on New Years Eve with Kids – 7 Ideas


What to do on New Years Eve with Kids


  • Pass out pens and index cards to everyone able to write. Ask them to write 1 great memory from the year every hour (starting when you’d like.) Once midnight strikes, take turns reading each others memories.
  • Plan a movie marathon of your families favorite movies.
  • Break out the board games and play ’til you drop.
  • Create your own New Years Eve ball with ribbon, toilet paper, or Papier-mâché. Designate a ball dropper to release it at midnight. You can celebrate on a different time zone if the kiddy’s are on a strict sleep schedule.
  • Bake a Cake and let the kids decorate it however they’d like. Then eat it!
  • Discuss, as a family, what you’d like to see happen/change in the New Year.
  • Make a time capsule and fill it with favorite toys & trinkets from the current year. Set a time to open the capsule (1 year, 5 years, 10 years later…)

  • Gather your single friends and go bar hopping.
  • Gather your single friends and have a girls/guys night in.
  • Get dressed up and find an awesome party.
  • Break out the DVR and re-watch your favorite shows from the year.
  • Make a list of all the things you hope to do in the next year. Add notes on how you can meet your goals.
  • Book yourself on a single’s cruise.
  • Find a public New Years Eve Party. Go to said party and find another single, attractive person. Propose that the 2 of you share a midnight kiss – just to get the year started off right. Who knows where it may lead! Make sure to check for cold sores so it doesnt’ lead to herpes.
