New Years as a parent can be interesting. In the six years since I became a mum, we have celebrated new years in three different ways:

  1. Palm kids off with a babysitter and go wild!
  2. Stay home, go to bed early and feel sorry for ourselves that we don’t have a baby sitter.
  3. Embrace a family friendly activity that’s fun with kids in tow.

Out of all three situations I have to say that involving the kids has been by far the easiest and most fun. The older and wiser I get the more I realise that the more fun the kids are having, the more fun we are having!

Here are 11 ways for a memorable New Year’s Eve with the kids along for the ride.

What are your plans this year???
