Dress Up

Dressing up will ensure that your kids remember that this night is special.  Let them wear special occasion clothing, or super hero costumes and  princess dresses - whatever works for your family.  The point is to make sure that your kids have fun dressing up for the occasion and that the adults do too.  So, whether you make your New Year's Eve bash with your kids themed or not, make dressing up mandatory for an extra element of fun.

Make Snazzy Drinks

Serve sparkling cider or ginger ale to celebrate the start of the New Year!  Throughout the evening though, get  snazzy and serve kiddie cocktails.   

An example of a kid approved favourite is the Shirley Temple.  To make, just pour sprite or 7-up into a glass and then add a splash of grenadine syrup.  Garnish with a maraschino cherry or four (that's how many my kids like) and lime slices.

Dance

Dance the night away with a fun playlist that has been compiled on your  iPod with favourites before the New Year's Eve bash begins. You can make up fun dance games to break up the evening.  For example, have the "DJ" pause the music periodically.  When that happens, each family member has to tell a fun memory from the year.  Or, make up a rule of your own.  Try having a dance contest, or bring in props like hula hoops to take the dancing to a whole new level.

Make Noise

There's no better night to make celebratory noise than New Year's Eve.    Have the kiddos make or use  noisemakers, hats and  party poppers that they can use throughout the night, and keep some pots and pans and wooden spoons handy for some good old fashioned banging to celebrate the New Year.

Countdown to Midnight

Countdown to midnight with your kiddos.  Here's the thing though.  You can count down to midnight using another time zone in a different country.  Pick a bed time that works well for your child's age and then countdown in that time zone.  There are tons of smart phone and  tablet apps that can make this easy for you, even providing on-screen fireworks displays for added excitement!  This way your kids don't have to stay up too late (and neither do you)!
