If your little ones are anything like mine, they are constantly begging to have sleepovers with their friends! Hosting a kids sleepover and providing a fun, creative environment everyone will enjoy can be a challenge. That’s why today on the blog I thought I’d write about some of my favorite slumber party tips for hosting a sleepover your kids and their friends will remember forever. Whether you’re prepping for a birthday party or just a fun Friday night with all the cousins or classmates, here are some creative twists that will take the overnight adventure to the next level.
Glamping For Littles
Alright, I admit it: I am a huge fan of glamping. I recently went to the Clayoquot Wilderness Resort, and I was head over heels with the resort’s ability to mix refined relaxation with the wilderness. While backpacking through the wild is better suited for Reese Witherspoon movies than kids sleepovers, the idea inspired a fun and imaginative play area for a slumber party. Recreate a glamorous camping experience for your little ones!
I added a stunning, handcrafted E&E Teepee in my daughter’s playroom, and it’s been an instant hit with all of her friends! We end up having our teepee up for weeks at a time because the kids never want to take it down. It’s the perfect little area for kids to play board games, read books, dress up, or do whatever else they can think up (our tent was recently deemed a “dinosaur castle”). The best part about these gorgeous teepees? They come in various patterns and themes. You’ll easily find a perfect match for your child’s personality and style.
Bedtime Make Believe
Let’s face it, the little nuggets are going to want to stay up all night playing. I found these fun duvet covers from Snurk to be the perfect solution. Snurk bedding is essential to every cool-kid sleepover. They help the kids get into bed faster! It’s a true win-win. I have the dinosaur duvet cover for my little guy, and it takes less than a second for him to hop into bed! Plus, Snurk bedding is just as comfortable as it is fun and imaginative. Made from 100% percale and percaline cotton, Snurk bedding offers breathability and comfort to help kids sleep through the night. From superheroes and princesses to astronauts, ballerinas, and firefighters—there’s a perfect Snurk out there for every imagination.
Ultimate Cuddle Buddies
What’s a sleepover without plush toys that are made for cuddling? I personally love the dolls from Meri Meri. They have the most precious dolls and plush toys (that also make for perfect gifts). I’ve curated a selection of my favorite kids toys on the site; anything you find in this shop is sure to spruce up a kids party! From plush toys, to dress up kits, play cars, fun tassel garlands, and wall decor—all of our Kids Shop cuteness is guaranteed to bring out the smiles.
