Celebrating the New Year is a unique tradition that brings a sense of fairytale and magic to your home. From childhood, I remember how they helped my mother in preparing the festive table, decorated the Christmas tree with my father. And then the whole family was waiting for many guests with mysterious gifts in colorful boxes. But what if you have grown up and you have your children for a long time? Here are some tips for celebrating a New Year that will be as good as your childhood.
It is necessary
festive mood and a sea of fantasy
Make gifts and cards and invitations for guests with your child. Come up with a festive outfit. Let your kid learn poems and songs about the New Year.
Connect everyone to the festive bustle: let someone do the cleaning, someone goes to the store for groceries. It is better to think over the menu of the festive table together. Do not get the recipes tattered to holes, try something new. For example, make Caesar salad instead of Olivier. For children, the best dish on the table is a birthday cake.
Turn your apartment into Father Frost's Fiefdom. The tree can be decorated with satin bows and small plush toys. Place large candles and crafts made with your child on the holiday table. Hang figures of fairy-tale characters and bright garlands on the walls.
Present a fairy tale to children. Show them a performance that smoothly turns into a search for gifts under the tree. Play some games. Go outside and make a snowman, play snowballs or build a snow fort.
Do not forget about the Snow Maiden and Santa Claus! These characters are an obligatory attribute of the holiday. For young children under 3 years old, tell in advance what kind of heroes they are and why they come. It's better if mom and dad turn into them.
