- Feast food
This activity has to be done on a weekend or vacation when the family doesn't have to wake up for school or work.
- Someone needs to be the organizer of the feast.
- Decide on a place to have the feast: a backyard under the stars, in a fort you've made, the basement, or you could drive somewhere special. The place doesn't matter as long as it's kept secret until the last minute. Midnight is a magical time and this will be an adventure to talk about and remember for a long time.
- Plan food for the feast that the family doesn't get to eat oftennothing messy or difficult to carry.
- Get blankets to sit on and set the alarm clock for 11:45 so everyone can be awake and ready to meet and eat at 12 midnight.
