10 Fun Ways to Celebrate New Year's with the Family

4 of 11
Slide 3

Family Slumber Party


Prepare for this activity on New Year's Eve – that's part of the fun! Visit the video store and rent any movies that the kids want to watch. Shop for snacks (even ones that are usually forbidden). Pick up a deck of cards and break out the board games.

Cook one of your family's favorite meals and eat it by candlelight in the living room. Then spend the evening watching movies and playing cards and board games. Spread pillows and sleeping bags or blankets on the floor and let the whole family camp out for the night. See how many family members are still awake at midnight!
