Who doesnít love a great sleepover? We all enjoy having friends around to hang out with and possibly stay up all night long. But are you really having the best sleepover you can? Maybe not Ė check out our tips to see what else you can do to really make your sleepovers great.1. Invite small numbers of friends.
While itís fun to have tons of people over, itís even more fun if itís four or less. This way you can hang out with everyone and nobody is going to feel left out. Inviting a few people at a time makes it more like hanging out with friends and less like a bit ordeal.
2. Plan ahead of time. Spend Friday planning the big sleepover that night. Then, when youíre heading home you can grab the right movies and snacks ahead of time. Waiting until everyone is together can make it harder to find something everyone can agree on.3. Keep it simple.
If youíre going to have friends over, donít get crazy Ė just make it simple enough to have fun and donít worry about complicated plans or unique crafts. Just invite people over, watch movies, eat junk and play. Simple. Fun.
4. Donít break the rules. If youíre having a sleepover at someoneís house, youíd respect the rules her parents set out and you should expect your friends to do the same for you and your family. If someone wants to break the rules, be firm about your expectations.5. Donít invite trouble.
If you know that you have one friend who hates another, donít bring them into the same room for a sleepover unless youíre ready to referee all night long. It may be better to have two sleepovers if you want to enjoy both friends over in a weekend.
6. Keep things balanced. You know your friendís situation, so if itís best to have every sleepover at your house, go ahead. But in general, you should try to keep things balanced and switch back and forth when you can to give everyone a chance to Ďhostessí the party.7. Make great memories.
The best memories are made at sleepovers, and you should definitely be sure that youíre doing everything you can to have some serious fun. Use your sleepover as an excuse to do makeover and take pictures. Go together to a party and then sleepover afterwards and rehash. Stay up late, tell stories and make memories Ė this is what sleepovers are really for, after all!8. Have impromptu parties.
If your parents are willing and your room is nice and clean, invite your friends over on a whim to spend the night Ė especially over breaks and on the weekends. You want to keep things interesting, so donít feel like you need to stick to Friday or Saturday if youíre looking at a three day weekend or an endless summer break. Invite some friends over and just hang out until everyone crashes Ė perfect party!
