Plan a Movie Night
Organize a movie night with friends at home using the GroupWatch function on Disney Plus for kids of any age. High School Musical, Cinderella, Frozen, and Ratatouille are a few movies you can consider watching with your kids. Give the movies a festive feel with hot cocoa kits, marshmallows, and cookies for everyone.
Craft a Digital Time Capsule
Make a time capsule with your kids to help them celebrate the end of the year. You can do it the old ways by having the kids fill a Mason jar with keepsakes like family photos from the previous year and seal it up for a decade or two. You can also do it digitally with services like Memories. This site allows you to send notes through email or text message to a loved one anywhere in the globe, or even to yourself, to be sent in the future as a memory of this point in time.
Sing with Your Kids in a Virtual Karaoke Session
There are no kids who doesn’t want to let off steam and have fun. Invite friends and family to an epic jam session or wild dance party by booking a virtual karaoke room. Allow your children to turn up the volume as you count down to the end of 2021 at any moment you like.
Learn and Cook Dinner with Your Family
Bring in a virtual expert to guide you through specialized dinner options to make this feel like a true New Year Holiday treat for your kids. There are numerous virtual cooking classes available on the internet. Truffle Shuffle, for example, offers a video tutorial as well as all the materials to make a delicious truffle-topped mac & cheese delivered to your door.
