Sleepover time is one of the most enjoyable times that your kids will have. This is because they will be able to host a party evening for their friends and show them all an incredibly good time. It is also when they get to spend the maximum amount of time with those they love outside of the family unit.
For these reasons alone, you need to make sure that the fun happens and the enjoyment doesn’t seem to end, creating a real adventure for your kid and all their friends to enjoy.
#1 Have an endless supply of nibbles
With a team of hungry youths at your heels, you are going to have to make sure that there are plenty of nibbles to be had both before, during, and after the entertainment. Kids love to snack, and party food is probably the best, so they should be relatively easy to cater to. You will, however, have to make sure that you are made aware of any intolerance or dietary requirements ahead of time so that you can prepare and have the food choices for everyone.
#2 Supply the perfect movie entertainment
Where possible, it is a good idea to have a few movie choices for the night. The best way of obtaining the best selection is to ask your kid to write a list of all their friend’s favorite movies and then pull some out of a hat. Alternatively, it will provide you with a good idea of what movie to invest in if you are looking to download a new release for the evening.
#3 Ensure you provide luxury novelty beds
Undoubtedly, they will need to sleep at some point during the night, so it is a good idea to ensure that you provide enough comfy beds for this to occur. Providing them with a novelty bed will make the event even more memorable, so purchasing a giant pillow for them to use as a bed could be the best experience ever. This can be a good investment, especially as it is likely to be the last sleepover that will ever happen, and you may find that when sleepovers happen at other homes, there is a request for the giant pillows to follow suit.
A few final thoughts
No doubt your kid will want you to make a real effort for their friends, although you will also be required to stay a little in the background as well. Providing the best nibbles for everyone to eat, share and enjoy will certainly be high on the list. Putting on a good movie that everyone will enjoy will provide you with time to relax until all the excitement starts again before bed and the nighttime stories that the kids themselves may well tell.
Providing them with comfortable novelty bedding will see that they do actually manage to get some sleep before they are collected and taken home the next day. Everything is going well; you may find this rather exhausting night for you, but a highly enjoyable night for your kid is repeated time and time again.
