Sleepovers are memory-makers for our kids; these are the parties where BFFs are made and the best kind of secrets are told. What makes a memorable sleepover party for one youngster, may not work for another. While there’s no one-size-fits-all approach, there is an art to creating a great experience that kids will remember for years to come. LORNE and RACHEL ALI from The Tepee Tribe share the recipe for sleepover party success.
Choosing the right theme
Super slumber parties are perfect for kids of all shapes and sizes. Little party-goers love staying up past bedtime, munching on midnights snacks, and telling stories until all hours. The trick to really standing out is to choose a theme that shows off the birthday boy or girl’s special interest.
With themes like space, dinosaurs and unicorns, The Tepee Tribe can help create a fun space that will wow kids of all ages! “Our parties are super cool; we aim to create lasting memories and a happy experience” says Rachel.
Rachel’s Tips for Kids’ Party Success
#1 Have a theme
Having a themed party is a great way to set the scene and helps create an atmosphere of something special and memorable.
#2 Engage your mini party planner
We suggest you get your child involved in the planning and choices for the party.
#3 Keep it intimate
Keep the numbers of guests at a comfortable level – especially for sleepovers; sometimes less is more!
#4 Be flexible
Plan some games but also be super flexible and go with the flow. Tepee Tribe parties are aimed at allowing children to be children and to enjoy their own special tepee space.
