New Year’s Resolutions
New Year’s Eve is the perfect time to get together with your family and plan some New Year’s resolutions. Let each child set a goal for themselves that you can encourage them to keep. You can even plan some family resolutions and set up a reward system for when you reach those goals together. This will get gets excited up self and group improvement.

Make a Time Capsule
Ask each person in your family to write a letter and choose something to put into a time capsule that you can open next New Year’s. In the letter, each person can write their accomplishments for that year and advice for their future selves. It will be so fun to see what everyone decides to put into the time capsule. And opening it in a year will be exciting, especially if everyone’s forgotten what they wrote or put in.

And of course you need to have a countdown! That’s the best part! Make noisemakers and confetti poppers with your kids to let loose at midnight. Get them all together for the countdown to the new year. They’ll have so much fun being able to scream and cheer and make a mess (and it’s only for a minute so you’ll be okay).

And when the fun is all done, all the little ones will be worn down enough (hopefully) that they’ll go to bed without a fuss to welcome a peaceful new year.
