Virtual Game Night

Start the new year off with a bang by hosting a virtual game night. There are a ton of virtual game apps out there, and they provide a fun, low-pressure way to get everyone’s competitive juices flowing. Whether you want to play classic card games like Go Fish or Gin Rummy, or something more current, like trivia or charades, there’s an app to suit every taste. Students can play together in small groups, or host a game night with a larger group of friends. Virtual games are a great way to get to know your friends better, and help you unwind after a long break.

Creating Resolutions

At the start of each year, many people make resolutions that they want to achieve before the end of the year. Students can follow this trend with their own resolutions for the New Year. Whether it be to volunteer more, read more, or learn a new skill, students can create their list of resolutions for the new year. Then, every year, they can add to their list and make the New Year resolution list their own.

To help students come up with their resolutions, have them participate in an activity: Have them write down their biggest dreams, wishes, and desires, and then have them tear those sheets of paper into pieces. Then, have them put the pieces back together again. This may help them reign in their wilder ambitions and focus on smaller, more achievable goals.

Indoor Movie Marathon

New Year’s Eve is often a night of boisterous parties, loud music, and overindulgence. It’s a great time to contrast that with a quiet, low-key evening with friends. Invite friends over to watch some movies, and treat the occasion as a mini-retrospective of the past year. Play games like New Year’s Resolution Bingo or New Year’s Movie Bingo that will encourage discussion and help everyone review the year past.

Vision Board Party

Students can make their vision boards, and then host a vision board party. This is a great way to get people excited about their hopes and dreams for the future, and a great way to document progress toward goals. It can also be a great way to connect with others who share similar ideals, no matter how different they may seem. For those who haven’t heard of a vision board, it’s a fun way to visualize and make concrete your future goals. 

You can make it as fancy or as simple as you like, with any type of visual representation that inspires you. Use pictures, words, quotes, or even pieces of fabric or yarn if you want something tactile. Whatever you choose, just make sure it represents what you want your future to look like! You can frame it or keep it on a wall in any way that works best for you.

Virtual Karaoke Party

On New Year’s Eve, you may have planned a loud, rowdy party or a quiet evening with friends. But to mix things up a little, why not try a virtual karaoke party? There are several apps available for smartphones that let you sing along to recorded tracks. You can host a virtual karaoke party with friends or family members who are far away. Perhaps you can try to connect with new people who share your interests. It’s a fun way to connect with people you otherwise might not meet.

Decorating Party

For creative students, New Year’s Eve is the perfect time to host a decorating party. Invite friends over, and challenge them to decorate “New Year themed boxes.” The types of boxes you use are up to you. You can use shoe boxes, decorative wooden boxes, shoe bags, or anything else you can think of! To make the party extra festive, invite students to use New Year-themed items like confetti, streamers, or party beads.

Writing Letters to Future Selves

If you have ever seen the movie “Back to the Future”, you know that there are some things that are better left untouched. Though it would be fun to see what the future holds, it is also important to take some time to reflect on the present. To do this, invite your friends to write letters to their future selves. You can make it as silly or serious as you want. But it is a great way to see where you are now and to set goals for the future. If you’re feeling ambitious and driven, you can also include other things that you want to accomplish.

Another thing you could do is create a New Year’s tradition by putting these letters in a special place where they can be revisited in the future. You could put them in a special journal, a scrapbook, or a box where friends can write their letters and put them in. This way you can look back on the past year and see what things you achieved and what you want to achieve in the future.

New Year Scavenger Hunt

New Year’s Eve is a great time to host a New Year’s scavenger hunt. The hunt can be designed to host friends or can be designed for families who are celebrating New Year’s Eve together. You can create your own hunt, or you can use an online generator to make it easier. The hunt can be as simple or complex as you like. You can use it as a way to get the party going. Or you can use as the main event. Whatever you decide to do with your hunt, remember to make it fun and interactive. If you are hosting a group of adults, you might want to steer away from prizes that are too childish. You may also want to consider having a theme for the hunt to make it more interesting for your guests.

Cooking Competition

Another option for New Year’s Eve is to host a cooking competition among your friends. Challenge each other to make the best New Year-themed dish. Or you can make it a more general competition and see who can make the best meal. This is a great way to mix things up and add some fun competition to the evening.

You can also use the competition as a way to get creative with ingredients. This is a chance to make dishes that you would not normally make.

New Year’s Day Spa Day

After all the excitement of New Year’s Eve, many people look forward to a relaxing New Year’s Day. One way to enjoy the day is to host a spa day for friends. You can have everyone chip in for the costs, or you can do it as a gift for a special friend. You can visit a nearby spa, or you can host a spa day in your own home. Whatever you decide to do, it is sure to be a relaxing day. It can help you recover from the excitement of New Year’s Eve.
