Planning Family Fun for New Year’s Eve

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool


Dear Friends,

New Year’s Eve is coming up, and now is a good time to start thinking about some family fun for that night. You don’t have to stay up until midnight to celebrate the New Year, but you can have a fun evening with your family.

There are lots of ideas I have seen over the years. One of my friends makes brown bags with a clock face, and each one is set for a different hour of the night. In the bag she puts directions for an activity. It’s kind of a grab bag for the kids.

You do not have to plan to that extent though. You can have a list of ideas and go with the flow. You can plan some finger foods for the evening.

Some activities might be playing a game, baking cookies, watching a movie, writing down things you are thankful for, goals for 2018, writing notes to family and friends, putting together a jigsaw puzzle, or playing music.

You can put some ideas down on papers and draw one out each hour and countdown until bedtime. Make memories with your family and enjoy the last night of the year.

During the month of December we have been practicing the habit of taking care of ourselves. What have you been doing to take care of yourself? If you have been lacking in this area, I want you to write down some ideas for relaxing activities that you enjoy. Then, I want you to implement these into your routines. You need to take care of yourself, so you can take care of your family.

Today’s Zone Mission is to move the living room furniture and clean under it.

Your Home Blessing for today is to declutter paper and magazines.

My menu plan for Thursday is chicken and a salad.

Have a great day!
