Happy New Years Eve!
Do you have New Years Eve traditions? We had way more when our older kids were still home. We had yummy food, played games and watched Dick Clarks New Years Rockin Eve. Once all of them moved out or had jobs and worked on New Years we just went to bed. Chloe didn’t understand all of the hype of it and we were just tired anyway.
I am trying as Chloe gets older to start introducing new traditions. She does understand the calendar as far as the months changing, but not sure if she understands the year changing. So I have been contemplating about what we can do as far as celebrating the new year. This is what I have come up with.
- Making a fun meal. It will probably be pizza.
- Playing games together.
- Read a book about New Years
- Buying or making party hats and blowers. Sorry Honey
- Doing our own countdown early. Chloe goes to bed at 7:30, so I am going to look on YouTube for a countdown. I was told they have fun videos for kids.
I am going to try these activities with her and see how she reacts. I thought about also doing a facetime with her sister. She always enjoys that. I can have traditions for Chloe, but I just have to modify them for her Autism. I hope she enjoys them.
What traditions do you do with your family? Please share.
Have a wonderful and blessed day!
