The countdown to New Years is always exciting, but those hours can seem long if you don’t have anything to do but sit around and wait. There has to be something more to do than just write up a list of resolutions, right? The best way to make the night go by quickly and still be full of memories is by keeping everyone entertained!
In order to make it a fun evening for everyone, I’ve rounded up nine fantastically fun game and activities that are perfect for the whole family!
- Do you remember the TV show Minute To Win It? It’s full of great challenges that you only have a minute to complete. With the whole night ahead of you, why not have everyone try their hand at a few and see who wins! Find some great challenges to try out here!
2. Keep everyone alert throughout New Years Eve by playing this special New Years themed version of bingo! Check out the free printable and instructions!
3. This game is the perfect way to look back on all the events of the past year and still have fun passing the time! Parents and kids alike will have fun sharing their favorite (and maybe not so favorite) memories from the last twelve months! You can get the game right here!
4. I can’t think of anyone who doesn’t enjoy a good round of ring toss, and this glow in the dark version adds the perfect festive twist to the classic game! It’s easy to put together and is sure to be a big hit! Get the instructions here.

6. We all know that the best part of any party is the food! Even though you may have been told never to play with your food, I think that New Years Eve games are an appropriate time to forget about the old rules and create something new!
