New Years with kids can be an entirely new experience. Of course you’ll not have late night parties but with kids, it could be so much more special! Here are some tips that will help you plan your New Year’s Eve with your child.
First things first: Make your home party ready. Gussy up the party corner with some party props and streamers.
Dress up: This would be the next essential to get the party feel. Your little ones also deserve some extra time to pamper themselves for the party. Dress them up in their party best attires.
Party essentials: Arrange for party masks, snacks and cold drinks (fruit juice for the tiny tot). Don’t forget party hats and noise makers!
Make a party playlist: Choose your favourite grown-up and kids’ tracks and step up to the dance floor with your kids. Kids are surely going to give you some real competition with their dance moves. Wait to watch them get excited with that loud music and disco lights.
Pose for the picture of the day: Choose a corner and turn it into your photo booth. Just decorate it with a glittery craft paper and your backdrop for the photo booth is ready.
New Year Resolutions: Jot down your resolutions and if your child is old enough, ask him/her to doodle his resolution. This makes a great conversation between the parents and the kids.
Raise a toast: Bring everyone a glass of milk and cookies and raise a toast to a Happy New Year and even happier beginnings.
Sparkle show: New Year’s Eve are known to culminate or rather mark the start the New Year with fireworks. What you can do alternately is light a sky lantern or simply fly glow balloons.
At last: The countdown!
Note- With kids you cannot be sure of celebrating up to mid-night. It’s not a bad idea to have an early night New Year bash.
