Twenty-Twenty is about to come to an end. In a few hours, we will ring in 2021. Although much of the country is still under quarantine as a result of rising threats from COVID-19, there are still many ways to ring in the new year safely and with some fun.
According to Today’s Parents, here are five ways to ring in the new year with kids.
1. Create a signature family mocktail
Toast to the new year with a signature kid-friendly family mocktail that is is exclusive yours. Come up with your own fancy drink so that you can say “cheers” to 2021 with your little ones. If you are in need of some inspiration, here is a recipe for a yummy Sparkling “Champagne” Mocktail.
2. Set up a family photo booth
Photo booths are always fun. Have your kids break out old costumes, clothes, etc, put them on the table, find yourself a back drop and snap away. Upload photos to one of the many photo album sites and create a masterpiece of memories that will last a lifetime.
3. Play dress-up with the little ones
What little one doesn’t like to play dress up. Let them go wild and raid not only their closets but yours a well. Whether they choose to dress up like their favorite superhero or princess, let them take over the night with fashion fun. And of course, you have to join in the fun too. Hint-hint, why not take advantage of the photo booth from number two and document this the fun for generations to come.
4. Have a dance party
Having a dance party is not only fun but gets you moving towards a healthier you in 2021. Show off those dance moves, play some of your favorite music from when you were younger and show your kids dance moves from your time. This is definitely one way to ring in the new year!
5. Make Resolutions
Sit down with your kids and talk about goals and resolutions that you’d like to accomplish in 2021. Have everyone write down their resolutions and place them somewhere where everyone can see so that they stay motivated throughout the year.
