Start the New Years Countdown Early with Netflix

I don’t know about you, but my kids are always excited to celebrate on New Years Eve. As much as they would be totally fine to stay up until midnight to celebrate, they’re not quite at the age yet where they can and not be a grizzly bear the next day! πŸ˜‰ So I still try to make their New Years Eve fun even if that means going to bed before the clock strikes twelve!

Last year we spent the afternoon outside by a bon fire, then came inside once it was dark and had a spread of yummy treats, watched a movie and then did a toast before they went to bed around 10pm. 

I’ve got a list of a few ideas to help make have a kid friendly New Years Eve that I wrote a few years ago here crystalclearmud.com/planning-a-kid-friendly-new-years-eve, but something that is missing from that list, is doing the count down early! I hadn’t thought about this, but Netflix did!! 

So whether your kid needs to go to bed at 7 or are allowed to stay up till 10, they can do their own countdown any time they want throughout the night! Or even, multiple countdowns! This year’s countdowns are based on some of kids’ favorite shows currently on Netflix like Word Party, Puffin Rock, Luna Petunia, Beat Bugs, All Hail King Julien, Skylanders Academy, Trollhunters, Project Mc2, Fuller House and Chasing Cameron.

If you want to get a few extra winks in the morning too after staying up to ring in the actual new year at midnight, Netflix has you covered there too! Put this door hanger on your door, and let the kids watch some of the most popular kids shows while you stay in bed just a little longer! πŸ˜‰

I hope you have a great New Years Eve, whatever time you decide to ring it in! πŸ˜‰
