The countdown is on.
This year, the most famous 10 seconds of the year are back on Netflix with 10 new countdowns based on some of your kids’ favorite shows: Word Party, Puffin Rock, Luna Petunia, Beat Bugs, All Hail King Julien, Skylanders Academy, DreamWorks Trollhunters, Project Mc2, Fuller House and Chasing Cameron.
Start your party anytime, anywhere by searching New Year’s Eve Countdown on Netflix. Here are some fun ideas to incorporate into your family’s celebrations!
This is super easy to put together and adds some festivity to your night! All you need are some party hats, streamers, party poppers, and masks.
Ice Cream Sandwich Bar:
This is a great way to keep the kids busy and everyone happy! Who doesn’t love an ice cream bar?! It is super easy to put together, just need your favorite ice cream, rainbow sprinkles,cookies (we bought ours as our local Albertsons) and display them on a tray, kitchen bar or kitchen table.
We do this every year and even at Christmas sometimes! I love a meat and cheese platter for any type of party really! It can serve as appetizers or even on it’s own! You decide! Just select some of your favorite salami, cheeses, some fruit (I like the red grapes), roasted almonds, fig puree, nuts of choice, and some bread sticks.
The morning after.
But after any good party comes the morning after, with cranky kids and tired parents. So Netflix is making parents’ lives a little easier by revealing 15 shows kids are most likely to watch back-to-back-to-back. They even made this nifty Door Hanger to almost guarantee a restful start to 2017.
Kids can watch these while you catch a few more Zzz’s:
