For a lot of people, staying up until midnight to count down the end of the year can be a struggle. Make sure your party is full of life with some fun and festive New Year’s-themed games!
Use an online bingo template like this one to create a bingo sheet filled with some memorable pieces of the previous year. It’s the perfect opportunity to reflect, reminisce, and share stories with one another in remembrance of 2021 before ringing in the new year.
Fill a container with a number of sweet treats like Hershey’s kisses or jelly beans (make sure to keep track of how many are placed) and allow guests to put in their guesses on how many are in the container! This is a fun and minimally competitive game with a built in prize for the winner that guesses the closest to the actual number! Plus, it ensures guests stick around until the end of the party to figure out who the winner is.
For groups that love trivia, hosts can put together a list of 2021-related trivia questions to test party-goers on how much they pay attention to news, pop-culture, and more events of the past year!
