Staying home for New Year’s Eve? We are!
Even before we were parents, John and I spent most of our New Year’s Eves at home. With kids we usually send the kids to bed at a regular bed time and then wake them just before midnight for some treats and a countdown. It works for us, but most of our friends think we’re nuts.
This year we got some help from Netflix in preparing for New Year’s – some party necessities, a door hanger for the morning, and some sheets for us to make some Netflix resolutions for 2017. Cooper wants to stay up until midnight, but we’ll see if he’s able to make it. Netflix has some great stuff to help you out this New Year’s too.
If your kids head to bed before midnight that doesn’t mean they have to miss out on the fun.
Netflix has 10 new countdowns for you and the kids to enjoy this tonight to get ready for the New Year. Watch them just before you send the kids to bed or maybe even do hourly countdowns just for fun!
- Word Party
- Puffin Rock
- Luna Petunia
- Beat Bugs
- All Hail King Julien
- Skylanders Academy
- DreamWorks Trollhunters
- Project Mc2
- Fuller House
- Chasing Cameron.
New Year’s Day is made for sleeping in, but kids don’t always get the memo. Netflix has you covered in the extra Zzz’s department with this free printable door hanger that lets the kids know they can enjoy some Netflix episodes while you get some extra rest.
