Have an outdoor movie
If you have the ability to set up a movie outside, do so! This is a super fun way for the kids to cuddle up and see a movie on the “big screen”. Plus, you can make a bunch of homemade snacks and just snuggle down and enjoy.

Create funny YouTube videos as a family
If your kids love YouTube, why not create some funny YouTube videos together as a family to see if you can go viral. Who knows – maybe 2021 will be your year to get a family reality show!
Create your own Ball Drop
Dancing around the living room and having your own countdown just might be the perfect way to ring in the New Year. Crank up the music, put on some fun clothes, and create a ball to drop at midnight at home.
Family game night is always a good idea and when the kids are granted access to stay up late, they’re certainly going to want to play board games over and over again. Get out the cards, the board games, and even some electronic games to battle the kids as the hours pass by.
