1. Have a Family Slumber Party

Sure, it might not have been the way you celebrated in the old days, but it's one of the great ways to celebrate New Year with the kids. Get some videos, pop some popcorn, and break out the board games and the sleeping bags. If you can fit it in the living room, go ahead and erect a tent or make a fort out of blankets. Roast marshmallows in the oven (if you have older kids), or gather round and tell your best scary stories. Giggle about things that happened over the previous year and share your hopes for the coming year.
