Fun, Easy & Cheap Ways to Celebrate New Years Eve in Summerville, SC with kids!

Happy New Years Eve!  Today is a day to celebrate all that has occurred in 2013 and anticipate what will come in the New Year.  For those of you with kids, New Years Eve looks a little different from before kids, but you can still have a lot of fun in Charleston and Summerville with your crew!

Here are some ideas for staying at home and celebrating New Years Eve in the comforts of your own Summerville home as well as what’s going on around Charleston, SC this New Year’s Eve.

If you want to stay IN with your kids this New Years Eve in Summerville…

New Years Eve can be a lot of fun for kiddos as well as adults. Get their favorite snack foods and finger foods in the house, pick out some fun games and maybe a fun movie lined up. Here are some fun ideas you can think about incorporating into your festivities…
  1. Make New Years Eve Noisemakers with the kids!  All you need is a piece of printer paper, tape and scissors!
  2. Scrapbook/Collage Time: Get out favorite ticket stubs, programs, and photos of fun activities your family enjoyed the past year and put them together as a family. This will get the memories rolling and the fun times experienced again.
  3. Family Meeting: Take time to connect and hear from your family about the past year and the New year to come…
    1. Talk about the Past Year: Ask each member of your family “What is one thing you are grateful for that happened last year?”
    2. Talk about the New Year: Ask each of your kids “What is one thing you would like to do in this New Year?” Make sure you listen to their ideas and see if you can make them happen. 🙂
  4. Celebrate! Come midnight (or 9pm if you have little ones) blow bubbles, stomp on bubble wrap and toot the noise makers you made!
