Time seems to fly by and 2013 is already upon us! There are so many fun ways to celebrate the New Year with your little ones. We have some great ideas for your family to ring in 2013!

Create festive New Year’s Eve decorations with one thing kids love- glitter! Cover plain party hats with glue and let your kids cover them with glitter. Have them decorate a frame and then you can use it to display a picture from the night.

Host a New Year’s Eve pj bash with other families. Have everyone come over in their pajamas and with sleeping bags for little ones who can’t stay up any longer. Have it be a potluck where everyone brings their favorite yummy snack to share. It’ll be a great way to celebrate with fellow families.

Check out what New Year’s Eve events local towns are offering. Many towns and cities offer family centered celebrations with fun activities and events for kids. This can be a fun and safe way for your whole family to ring in 2013.

Create a 2013 jar where everyone in your family writes what they hope will happen in the coming year. Have everyone keep it simple so kids can feel like they can accomplish these goals.

Make the night special and go out for a nice dinner as a family. Have reservations and go early so you can enjoy your time together.

If you don’t think your kids can stay up past their bedtimes skip the countdown to midnight and plan something fun to do on New Year’s Day.

We hope you and yours have an amazing new year!
