A sleepover for your child and their friends can be a fun event for them to socialise, practice independence and interact with others in a safe and secure environment. Your child will no doubt appreciate your efforts trying to give them the best time possible. It must be organized well as the responsibility of other children also lies at your hands. Take a note of the tips below to organize the best sleepover for children.
Parents send their children away on sleepovers only when they are assured of their safety and proper care. So make an effort to write a memo or draw an invitation with details such as drop-off time, pick up time, activities planned, items to be brought like sleeping bags, toiletries and clothes, the level of supervision and contact numbers for any emergencies. It is even better if you can converse with these parents and be familiar with them before hosting the sleepover. Ask for any special instructions regarding their children such as allergies or use of inhalers and many other.
Have a few fun activities planned
Make the sleepover memorable and interesting for the children by having a few activities planned before bedtime by also opting this childrens furniture. It is a good way to get them tired to sleep better but avoid any extravagant activities as it can cause them to be too excited and unable to sleep. Instead have activities like decorating cupcakes, playing board games, karaoke, story time and crafting activities. After dinner, you can give them a sugary treat, which no child will refuse but make sure they have it at least one hour before bedtime so that they don’t lay wide awake unable to sleep due to a sugar rush. Engage with the children as much as possible and make them feel confident in your care. Make yourself available for them to reach out to you in any case of an emergency.
Ensure a good night’s rest
If the sleepover is only for two, trundle beds for kids maybe a good way to share a bed between them. However, if there are many children, get creative and build them a fort in the living room and have them sleep in their sleeping bags together. Make sure there aren’t any disturbances and do regular check-ups just to make sure they are sleeping well. Have a dim light on if they are too scared of the dark and maybe some night sky starry lights on the ceiling from a projector to make it a real magical experience. Organizing a sleepover for children is a big responsibility, yet a worthwhile experience as children can be great entertainers.
