CHICAGO – Ringing in the New Year with young children can be a bit of a challenge for some parents.
They want them to feel the joy and thrill of a New Year’s Eve countdown, but unfortunately, most pint-sized partiers can’t hang until the stroke of midnight.
We caught up with Bethany Braun-Silva, parenting, entertainment, and Lifestyle Editor for some fun ideas to create a kid-friendly New Year’s eve celebration.
Braun-Silva says don’t plan on counting down to midnight in your timezone but instead usher in the New Year with jolly old England since midnight there is 6 p.m. CT.
She also recommends Netflix’s “New Year’s Eve countdown,” creating a DIY photo booth or building a balloon drop to make the night memorable for your little party-peeps.
You can see those suggestions and more in the video above.
