If you live on the West Coast, for example, you can celebrate midnight in New York, and even watch the ball drop in Times Square on the East Coast cable feed. After a little celebrating you can have the kids in bed by 9:15!


8. Have your kids fill out time capsule questionnaires.

Once your kids have written down things like what their favorite meal of the year was, you can store the questionnaires in a "time capsule" to be opened on the next New Year's Eve. Download the free printable here.


16. Set up a year in review photo scavenger hunt.

Put photos you took during the year throughout the house, then let your kids try to collect as many as possible. Afterward you can look at the photos together and reminisce about all the fun you had. Learn more here.
