However with Halloween looming, why not go all out and throw a spooky themed slumber party to create a memorable experience for your little ones and their guests? With this in mind, we’re going to share our top tips on how to throw an unforgettable sleepover this October…
As a parent, it can be time consuming organising a sleepover for your child and their friends. However, with a little bit of planning ahead and our ideas you can create a truly spooky yet enjoyable experience they’ll never forget.
Delightfully ghoulish decorations
No themed slumber party is complete without decorations! Spooky bedding and pillows are an easy way to instantly set the tone and add a pop of colour to any bedroom. If you’re looking to spruce up your child's bedroom or make their guests more comfortable, our selection of memory foam pillows are the perfect low cost solution. Plastic figurines of bats, ghosts, black cats and spiders are also a nice finishing touch and can be placed on any windowsill, ledge or fireplace. If you have dimmer switch lighting, lower the lights to create shadows and reflections.
Give'em pumpkin to talk about
Halloween garlands are another cost-effective and quick way to decorate the walls too, you can even get creative and make your own at home, plus it’s a super fun way to get your little one involved. Furthermore, Halloween isn’t complete without a jack-o-lantern. Whether you choose a traditional design or go for something more intricate, our top tip is to pick up your pumpkin well ahead of Halloween as in the days that approach the big day, many stores have depleted stock.
Be the ghostess with the mostest with fun and games galore
If you’re hosting the sleepover on the weekend of Halloween, trick-or-treating is on every child's wishlist! However if the event is on the lead up to Halloween, there are plenty of other activities to get into the spooky spirit. A scary makeup competition, apple bobbing, pin the hat on the witch and Halloween treasure hunt are to name but a few. Additionally, decorating masks is also a hands-on activity that the kids can get stuck into and can take home as their party favour. Always think ‘safety first’ and never leave young ones to go out on their own, wrap up for bad weather and carry a torch.
