Unique Slumber Party Games for Kids of All Ages
Slumber parties, well great fun for the kids, can be a lot of work for you as the hosting adult. Not only do you have to make sure your house is presentable and child friendly, but you also have to prepare food and do some planning to keep everyone occupied.
Food is a big part of the night. You’ll need to get plenty of snacks together for the evening. These can include pretzels, mozzarella sticks, cookies and chips. You’ll also need drinks, but to keep the hyper-activity levels down you’ll want to stick with those drinks that are low in sugar, such as water and milk. Juices often contain a fair amount of sugar, so you’ll want to save those for the morning, along with things like toast, peanut butter and jelly, and pancake mix.
So, once you have your menu planned, it’s time to move on to the entertainment. A few slumber party games can go a long way toward making your party a night to remember.
This is a great, low-key way to cement friendships and start off the night right. Get some embroidery thread in different colors, and show the kids how to make friendship bracelets. First, start off with six strings, about 10 inches long, for each bracelet. Second, tie a knot at one end and then group the strings two by two. Now you’ll start braiding, making sure that one third of the way down you switch the pairings, so that you get a pattern. Switch again when you get another two-thirds of the way down. Finally, when you are almost all the way to the end of the threads, tie a know. And there you have it! Now all you have to do is have the kids pass the bracelet that they made to the child on their right, and everyone will get a token of friendship.
