Unconventional Ways to Celebrate New Year’s

Not a big fan of the typical New Year’s festivities? Skip the night life vibe and crowded venues and try one of these unconventional ideas instead.

Create a Year-Long Time Capsule

Time capsules are a great way to reflect on the past year and prepare yourself for the year ahead. Instead of burying an air tight container for 20 years, put items that represent the ending year into a box and don’t open it until the next New Year. Every year repeat the process. If you do want to go all out and do a real capsule, below is a great source on how to make one.

How to make a time Capsule

Host a Sleepover

Sleepovers don’t have to be just for kids! Invite some of your closest pals to put on their PJs and spend the night watching Netflix, stuffing your face with snacks, and just being lazy. To really go the extra mile, rearrange the furniture and create a massive sleeping area comprised of blankets and pillows galore.

Have a Game Night

Who doesn’t like a good game night! Invite your friends over and have a night filled with some friendly competition. You can even make it a theme where couples compete, or a boys vs. girls challenge. To make sure the party is a hit, choose the top-rated party games from this list – Top Rated Party Games.

Plan a Craft Party

This might be more suited for those with kids, but adults can join in on the fun as well! Have everyone make party hats, DIY confetti poppers, and other New Year’s themed items while ringing in the New Year.  For a full list of the best crafts to try click this link – New Year’s Crafts
