Chances are your plans for this New Year ’ s Eve may look very different from other years . But that doesn ’ t mean you can ’ t enjoy the evening and ring in the New Year with fun for the whole family , even if you are making last-minute plans .
If you feel comfortable going out , Legacy Lanes and Shelby Theatres are both good options for early evening fun . Legacy Lanes will be open from noon to 10 p . m . that day and is offering a $ 49.95 special . This is for two hours of bowling for up to five bowlers . Shoes , a pitcher of pop and a large pizza are included in the package . You can check the Shelby Theaters ’ Facebook page for times and movies .
If , like many people , you feel staying home is a better choice for you , you can still have fun . Plan a New Year ’ s Eve party for your family and let your children help . Just because it is “ just ” the family doesn ’ t mean your party shouldn ’ t have all of the trimmings .
Give your children construction paper and let them create decorations for your party . Curling ribbon makes great streamers , and it is a cheaper solution than buying streamers . Best of all , your kids can cut and curl the ribbons and help you hang them everywhere . Balloons are another inexpensive way to decorate your home .
Buy party hats and noise makers for your family . Kids love to celebrate and be part of the celebration . Buy plastic “ wine ” or “ champagne ” glasses and let your kids drink from the fancy cups that night . Mix a punch just for them in your punch bowl and see how excited they get . Ask each child to choose a special snack for the party and set everything out in pretty bowls , just like you do when you have a big party .
For entertainment , play hide and seek with your kids or break out some board games . Create a scavenger hunt through your home . Play other party games and have small prizes ( a bag of mixed candy works well ) for the winner to choose from . The internet is full of games for all ages , from charades , to stacking cups , to minute-to-win-it races you can do with little to no prep .
Once the games are over , crowd into your living room for a family movie . Consider letting the kids bring sleeping bags , blankets and pillows into the living room and sleeping there all night . If anyone is still awake at midnight , blow your horns and pop your poppers to celebrate the New Year . Don ’ t forget plenty of hugs and kisses to welcome in 2021 .
Chili Crossroads holds a special Christmas hike
Chili Crossroads Bible Church enhanced its Christmas Experience held Dec . 19 . The new event was called the Christmas Luminary Hike & Experience . The hike started across the street from the church , went around the circumference of the church property and ended at the live manger scene . “ This is our first year to do the Christmas Luminary Hike ,” Pastor Neal Dearyan said . “ We adapted our Christmas Experience to make it more COVID safe by creating an outdoor experience as a big part of the night . We want people to rejoice in the true meaning of Christmas despite all the craziness with COVID . We had a live nativity , a nativity craft , a puppet show , a bake sale and professional pictures with Frosty the Snowman .” Pictured is Christina Herriman as Mary with her son , Graham , who were part of the luminary hike .
