Want to host a successful sleepover and make sure that both your kid and their friends have an amazing time? Then follow these tips.
Limit the Number of Invitations
Don’t make it a full house on the first sleepover you organize. Instead, start by inviting only your kid’s closest friends. Once you get a hang of it, you can expand the “guest list”.
Interview Other Parents
Make sure to “interview” other parents in order to learn more about their kids, including their preferences, dislikes, and any special needs. This way, the parents will be much more comfortable with having their kid at your house.
Make a Detailed Plan
You definitely don’t want to go into hosting a sleepover without a detailed plan. Make sure you set the exact time when the parents will drop off their kids and when they will pick them up. Then, plan out the meals and snacks, making sure you include everything that kids will like without making it too unhealthy. Finally, plan some activities that will encourage kids to play.
Let Them Have Fun
As a host of a sleepover, it is your duty to watch the kids and give them things they need to have a great time. But try not to be too strict. If they want to spend the majority of the night watching TV or playing video games, then they should do that.
