It’s possible to plan a stress-free sleepover, where you get maximum sleep and the children have minimum dramas, but with all the fun left in. Everyone remembers their first sleepover, an exciting time of never-ending play and chatting, but not only are these fun, they also have many benefits for children;
- Sleepovers help to boost independence.
- Experts agree that whilst children are at a sleepover, they are forced to do things for themselves – whether it’s asking for a drink or figuring out where the bathroom is, this aids personal development.
- Children are able to strengthen bonds and make new friends.
If sleepovers feel like an unorganised, chaotic experience, you aren’t going to want to host them, but following these tips will lead to a successful sleepover which is rewarding for both yourself and the kids.
