Sasee Kids Ring in the New Year

By Leslie Moore

New Year’s Eve is a day of celebration and fun! Make this year’s celebration one the kids will remember with a special activity or two!

Go Out

The Children’s Museum of South Carolina in Myrtle Beach will host “Noon Year’s Eve” just for kids. From 9 am – noon, the events will include festive crafts, a balloon drop, a juice toast and much more!

Go enjoy the fireworks extravaganza at Broadway at the Beach – at a very kid-friendly 8 pm!

A Southern Times Square at Market Common is fun for kids and adults with inflatables and games, plus live music, mimes, a glass blower, face painter and much more!

Stay In

Dress up in your finest and let the kids do the same. Bonus points if you have some dress up clothes like long gloves and hats. Don’t forget pretty nail polish for the girls. Once everyone is properly attired, serve a special mocktail and appetizers. Don’t forget to take lots of photos!

Dance like no one is watching! Roll up the rugs and put on the tunes! A dance party is fun for kids and adults. If you get tired, sit on the couch and watch the kids move and groove. Photos are a must here as well!

Make a blanket fort – this can be lots of fun. Google “blanket forts” for lots of creative ideas. Once the fort is complete, everyone puts on their pajamas and gets inside! Play a board game, tell stories or read a good book together – make sure you have special snacks. We’re willing to bet the kids will be sound asleep well before midnight.


Sit down with your kids and talk about what you want to accomplish in the upcoming year. This is a good time to think about goals for the family. Do you want to commit to one family night a week featuring board games and conversation? How about the sports lover? Will she commit to an hour of practice three times a week to help her make the team? Maybe everyone just wants to laugh together more – how can this be accomplished? Write down a few family resolutions and put them on the fridge.
