Much like everything since March, New Year’s Eve is going to feel a lot different this year, the ball drop in Times Square without the massive crowd of spectators, lots of families opting to stay in rather than celebrate in large crowds as the clock counts down to 2021, but just because things will be more subdued doesn’t mean we can’t still have a Rockin’ New Year’s Eve… Here are some ideas for celebrating at home!
Have your own fireworks show:
Most public New Year’s Eve fireworks events are canceled due to Covid-19, but you can still have your own, even it’s just the kids waving around some sparklers.
Create a Countdown Party:
At each hour, have a special surprise activity planned for the family to do together. Play games, make crafts, eat snacks, go on a scavenger hunt, read a new book… Write the activity on a balloon, blow it up and right the hour on the outside of the balloon. At the start of each hour pop the corresponding balloon to find out your new activity.
Host a virtual Celebration:
Just because your kiddos can’t celebrate with all of their friends in person doesn’t mean they can’t all get together via Facetime or Zoom. Let them dress up in silly outfits or New Year’s gear and chat with their friends as 2020 comes to a close. For parents with kids already in bed, grab your favorite adult beverage and zoom it up with your besties.
Dance it out:
As if we need an excuse to have a dance party. Create a playlist of all of your favorite songs from 2020 and have a dance off or let your kids teach you some of the most popular TikTok dances from this year.
Celebrate NOON Year’s Eve:
Go all out with a sparkling grape juice toast, turn on a pre-recorded Netflix countdown and make a lot of noise!
Pop popcorn, pass out the movie candy and host an all-night movie marathon! Pick a series you’ve been wanting to see (Harry Potter, Chronicles of Narnia, Percy Jackson… ) and start at the beginning, or let everyone pick their favorite.
Have a Game Night:
Get out all of your board games and cards and spend the night playing all of your family favorites!
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continues to urge people to celebrate the holidays at home with others who live with them, but whatever you choose to do, all of us here at BirminghamMommy wish you a Happy New Year!!
