One of the most-awaited activities of your little girl is what we call a sleepover or a slumber party. Slumber parties are also done by boys whenever they want to share a ghost story or two, or if they want to swap their action figures for a rough game in the wee hours of the night. But more importantly, the little girls are the ones who would really love to stay out from their homes and spend the night at the houses of their friends. Expect that these young girls will giggle and talk all night.
Slumber parties are considered to be one of the most meaningful moments for your young child. In this very simple occasion, your children are able to socialize with her friends and develop genuine friendship with the other kids that they spend time with. That is why it is very important for you and your child to plan some of the activities that you plan to do for the sleepover. There are tons of slumber party games which are easy to do for you. All you have to do is to get the materials which will be used in propping up the games and you are ready to go.
One of the most popular slumber party games that your child could do is a sleeping bag race, which is an alternative for the outdoor sack race. You may assist your children in grouping themselves into two. It would be better if you have two different colors of the sleeping bags so it would be easier to group the children into two because they are represented by the colors of their sleeping bags. In this game, the first two kids in line will have to race to the sleeping bag, put them on, and race until they get inside completely. Once that happens, they get out and go back, and the next kid does the same thing. The first team to finish the task will be declared as winner.
Another slumber party game is ‘pass the pillow’. In this game, let the children gather around in a circle. They would have to pass a pillow containing pieces of paper in which several fun activities are written. Play some music and instruct them to pass the pillow to the person sitting beside them. By the time the music stops, the last child who gets the pillow will pick a piece of paper and perform the activity which is stated there. Make the activity as simple and worthwhile as possible. Give a reward for those who perform well and repeat the whole process again. Remember that one should consider giving away some rewards to all of the children participating in the game, or else, you might end up facing tons of children crying because they were not given anything at all.
Slumber parties can be quite an endearing experience for your young child. This is why it is very important for you to organize it efficiently and well.
