Slumber Parties become cherished childhood memories. It’s such a treat to have friends spend the night. Make a slumber party extra special by having your child select a fun theme, such as outerspace, movie night, or spa makeover. Clear a room for guests to spread out their sleeping bags, or if your child is adventurous and the weather pleasant, have the children sleep in tents in your yard.
Design invitations like a night sky (moon & stars) and include a photo of your child in cute pjs. Ask guests to bring a sleeping bag, pjs, and tooth brush.
Decorate with personalized party banners, colorful balloons and streamers, and silver paper or glow-in-the-dark plastic stars hung from ceiling.
