Streaming a different city's ball drop would be fun to experience the pomp and circumstance of a New Year's Eve countdown without having to endure the short bedtime. Kids will be excited to watch London's famous fireworks display over the Thames River as it will be streamed live for East Coasters.

Countdowns for kids on Netflix

You can keep things simple by cueing up their favorite characters if your children are not interested in Ryan Seacrest or the live countdowns in big cities. New Year's countdowns on Netflix include character-driven content such as Boss Baby, Spirit the horse, confetti, fun, and fireworks.

Purchase a backdrop and props for your photos

With a festive printed backdrop and New Year's Eve photo props, you can get creative and customize your backdrop with glitter, shimmering pompoms, gold lettering, and you name it.

Have a midnight party

Whenever we have a handful of small children around, we think of "Noon Year's Eve," which happens right before naptime. When we have older kids, we think, "It's midnight somewhere," which makes for fantastic kids' New Year's Eve parties.

Enjoy your favorite food on a special night

The celebration of New Year's Eve is a time to reflect on the year that has passed. Let your kids plan a special dinner menu for the future! There is no denying you are eating potato chips and Twizzlers, but it is a great way to begin an annual tradition where you enjoy your favorite foods and observe how it varies from year to year. Make it a potluck if you invite friends, so they each bring their favorite food to share.

New Year's noisemakers

The term "ringing in the new year for nothing" is not just used for nothing. This black and gold noisemaker lets everyone know the new year is here. The kids will enjoy making lots of noise with sound, regardless of the time, whether it is the real midnight or their mock midnight.
