2020 has been a year like no other. We’ve had to adapt or change the way we do every day things including how we see and connect with friends and family. Luckily, 2021 is around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about tips for how to safely ring in the New Year at home.

Play Games

New Year’s is a good time to break out the board games, especially if you live with family, friends, or have a caregiver who comes to see you. Favorites like Scrabble and Monopoly are always fun to play together. Game fun can also be had online by playing Cards Against Humanity.

Eat Breakfast for Dinner

Making delicious breakfast food at home for dinner is one way to celebrate the new year and have leftovers to eat for breakfast in the morning. Dishes to add to your New Year’s celebration include apple cider waffles and cinnamon roll pancakes.

Write Wishes for 2021

Writing resolutions is a tradition for every new year. But one way to ring in the new year is to write down goals for this coming year. If you’re celebrating with more than one person in your home, put the goals in a jar and see how far you’ve come in the next year.

Travel to France at Home

Another way to celebrate the new year is to take a trip to France by making your own French holiday. Make French dishes like salade Nicoise, Coq Au Vin, and creme brûlée. Enjoy your meal with a movie set in France like an American in Paris while you wait for the clock to strike midnight.

Make Your Own New Year’s Headband

A New Year’s headband is a small detail that will put the final touch on your celebrations. All you need to complete it are:

  • Headbands
  • Gold streamers
  • Glue Gun
  • Cardstock
  • Glitter
  • Glitter Glue
  • 2021 Template

Simply follow the steps to assemble them for a nice decoration that should take approximately 20 minutes to complete.
