Plan a Great New Year's Eve with Kids and Family

While Christmas is very exciting for kids, New Years Eve is an adult holiday but that doesn't mean the kids will be bored.

If you are having a family New Years Eve or there will be a lot of kids around just plan out the evening. Here are some ideas for planning out the last few hours of 2009.

Play a board game - 7:45 to 8:45
Have your kids pull out one of their Christmas presents of a family favorite game and have fun. Play Clue, Monopoly, Sorry, Apples to Apples, Cranium or any game that they enjoy.

Throw in a Movie - 9 - 10:30 or 11:00
Then have a movie ready. Select soemthing that is fun and will keep them entertained for an hour or two.

Play these New Year's Eve Games 11:00 - 11:30
As you get closer to midnight, you can play a variety of trivia games and have fun sharing the answers. Check out various printable New Years Games. You can even play these while the tv is playing in the background.

TV Time - 11:30 time for the watching the countdown
If you can't be at Times Square or a local New Years event it's time to turn on the tv and watch the countdown from around the country. By waiting til 11:30 to turn on the tv the kids won't be asking is it time yet? (every 15 minutes)

Celebrate - Happy New Year!
Have a safe and Happy New Year
