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

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