Have a Shooting Star Party
Bring blankets or a sleeping bag and a thermos of something warm to drink. Hot chocolate, perhaps?
Lie down and get warm and cozy. Let your eyes relax and try not to look at any particular spot. This way, your eyes will be more likely to notice any movement and you will see more meteors this way.
Most important, be patient! If you are lucky, you might see a meteor as often as every few minutes. You may not see one that often. The quality of the "show" depends on the specific meteor shower, the time you are observing, the conditions of the sky, the phase of the Moon, and other things.
