New Year’s Eve with Kids

On a night when the typical celebrations are decidedly adult—late nights, bubbling beverages, etc.—you may feel stumped on how to find the fun in the holiday with little ones in tow. Here are some tips for celebrating New Year’s Eve with kids.

Dress Up Your Decor. Balloons and streamers are a fast and inexpensive way to make a space more festive. Snowflakes left over from your Christmas decorations will look magical ringing in the new year too.

Yummy Treats. Nothing gets kids on board faster than some yummy treats made with them in mind.

Special “Drinks” for Them. While the grownups may be sipping champagne, kids will feel special with a treat served in a champagne flute (plastic, of course), a special hot chocolate or just some dressed up milk.

New Year’s Eve Props. Ring in the new year with DIY noisemakers. Raid the dress-up bin for festive hats and boas.
