New Year’s Eve Fun for Families

Let’s keep the kids up late to ring in the new year, right? Ha!

If you’re lucky enough to have a babysitter for New Year’s Eve, good job! For the rest of us, tucking the kids in at a reasonable hour and enjoying a few moments with another grown-up is a welcome treat.

Whether you stay up until midnight or throw a Noon Year’s-Eve style party, we’ve got a few ideas for you. If you are looking to get out of the house for a bit, read on to find a few Lansing fun things to do with kids on New Year’s Eve.

Please call and confirm your favorites – some things need reservations.

Make Your Own Fun at Home on New Year’s Eve

Sometimes the best party is an evening right at home in comfy pajamas.

Some of us can keep going strong until the ball drops; other of us need to cash in a little earlier but don’t want to miss out on the excitement of the new year.

Whichever you are, here are a few ideas for New Year’s Eve Family Fun around the house:

  • Watch a countdown a little closer to bedtime on Netflix. Celebrate with your favorite sparkling juice or kiddie mocktail.
  • DIY your own balloon drop. So fun!
  • Have a Fortnite dance-off. 
  • Have a Family Game Night with Board Games, Puzzles, or a Card Game. Talk about all the “best things” that happened in 2018 as you play games.

From all of us at Lansing Family Fun, we wish you and your family a happy and safe New Year’s Eve.
