Top Tips for Sleepover Success

Our Ask Ali column helps you navigate sleepovers so everyone has the best sleepover EVER.

1. Know the rules. Walk the kids through the house and share the rules of the house and tell them what they can do if they have a problem, get scared or need a grown-up in the middle of the night.

2. Keep your guest numbers small.

3. Have plenty of new games and activities on hand.

4. Tell other parents what time the sleepover ends and double-check there aren’t any food allergies, bedtime routines or any other crucial information that you need to know.

5. Keep lots of fun and healthy snacks around. When kids are having fun, they aren’t great about sitting down to eat.

6. Make your guests feel extra special  by renting their favorite movie or playing their favorite game/song for dance time.
