9 Tips for Hosting a Sleepover Party

When your child is old enough for an overnight (typically age six and up is appropriate), here's how to get the party started.

  • Make a guest list. Begin planning the party with your child.
  • Send or e-mail invitations. Distribute invitations, requesting parents’ contact info and a heads-up about the child’s allergies with an RSVP.
  • Enlist help. Ask a friend or relative to help you out on the day of the party—especially with younger kids.
