Celebrating New Year’s Eve With Kids – Party Ideas and Local Events

We are part of Amazon Associates.

Gone are the late night New Year’s Eve parties. Now, we have to worry about impossible-to-find NYE babysitters and getting the kids to bed at a decent time.  But, you can still have a fun New Years! Here are a few ideas!
Throw a kid-friendly New Year’s Eve party with a few friends.
Ring in the New Year at your selected time – 4:00 PM works great!  Think easy –
Photo Booth, Piñata, and Pizza.

Create a New Year’s Eve party at home for you and your partner after the kids go to bed. 
Chinese take-out and a good bottle of wine – check! Maybe just hanging out with your partner in PJs is all you need. Buy a mini bottle of champagne for your midnight toast and dance to Auld Lang Syne. And remember, if you are exhausted because of your little one(s), there is no shame in celebrating at 9:00 PM with NYC. 
You can even celebrate around town!
