If your school has ever hosted pajama day, you know how wild kids are for facing the world in clothes usually reserved for bedtime. So why not parlay that kind of fun to your little one’s next birthday party? Tell guests to come in their favorite jammies and slippers, decorate with sweet dreams in mind, serve a menu of nighttime (well, anytime) favorites, and no one will notice or care if the sun is shining outside.

Décor

It doesn’t have to be dark to play up the slumber party theme. Just do the following:

• Decorate the floor of the party room with pillows, blankets, and stuffed animals. Guests can also bring sleeping bags, if they’d like.

• Cut out as many large cardboard stars as there are party attendees. Set up a craft table with pens and stickers, let kids decorate the stars, then hang them in the party space.

Tip: Hang string from the ceiling before the party starts so you don’t have to do it mid-party. Let the birthday boy or girl decorate and hang a moon before the party begins, too. After the party, take down the stars and give them back to each guest as parting gifts — it's less to throw away later!

• Play lullaby music to set the mood.

Menu

Keep it simply delicious while playing up the theme! Snuggle two-bite cocktail franks in cozy pastry wraps with homemade Pigs in Blankets, or warm hearts and tummies with mugs of chicken noodle soup. Add standard kid-friendly snacks of baby carrot sticks, popcorn, and sliced apples. Finish with a stunning star and moon cake or cover milk and cookies in one swoop with ice cream sandwiches.

Activities

Let partygoers decorate white pillowcases with fabric markers (slide a piece of cardboard between each so the color doesn’t bleed through). At the end of the party, let them take the pillowcases at home so they can remember the party each time they go to sleep.

After decorating stars, pillowcases, and enjoying "dinner," show a movie or host story time.

Goodie Bags
Along with the stars and pillowcases, send kids home with classic bedtime ritual helpers — rubber ducks for bath time and whimsical toothbrushes.


How to Host an Un-Slumber Party

It happens when you least expect it . . . your little girl asks the question you've been dreading since the day she was born. "Mom, can I have a sleepover?" (Okay, I'm exaggerating a bit. I don't really dread sleepovers, but somehow they don't sound quite as fun for the adults as they are for the kids!) Actually, we don't worry about sleepovers at our house at all. That's because we simply don't have them.

But, just because we don't allow sleepovers, doesn't mean we can't have a fun late-night party! We love to host "Un" Slumber Parties! (Also called Pajama parties or Late Nights.)

Here's how a late-night, pajama or un-slumber party works:

  • The kids come in their pajamas
  • They do the typical slumber party things like paint nails, watch movies and eat lots of food
  • They stay up late
  • When the fun is done, they all head home to sleep in their own beds

The Invitations

Try these Pillow Case Invitations, or shape yours like a night owl or sleep mask.

The Crafts and Games

Lots of girls means you need lots to do to keep them busy! When it comes to crafts and games, divide and conquer! I plan two activities and divide the girls in half. Fewer girls means less chance of feeling forgotten or left out. We like to play Spin the Nail Polish Bottle.

These DIY Non-Slip socks were a hit at our last party. Be sure to give the girls aprons or paint smocks so they don't ruin their clothes, though! (We used my freezer paper art aprons left over from Boo's Art party.

What happens if one of the groups is finished before the other? Be sure to have an extra activity or coloring page to pull out. We love to play Funny Bones. I've had this game since I was a kid. I'm probably really dating myself. Anyone else remember this game?

The Food

Boo has Celiac disease, so birthday cake has to be gluten free. No worries--gluten-free cake is not hard (I have a great mix), and it tastes just like the real thing, but I decided not to bother. Have you ever noticed how much cake gets thrown away at birthday parties? Kids are so busy playing (and so stuffed from party snacks) that they often barely even touch it. I decided to save the work of baking and decorating, and do a Sundae bar instead. It was a huge hit! Add a little popcorn for the movie, and we were all set!

If you've been wondering . . . it is definitely possible to put candles in ice cream! (If you haven't been wondering . . . it's still possible! Hee, hee!) And bonus--if you accidentally buy trick candles, you might just become the best mom ever. I had no idea those could be so fun!

We started the party after dinner (another way to avoid the gluten-free thing), but if you don't want to skip it, consider breakfast for dinner as a nice change from pizza .

The Goodie Bags

Guess what? You don't need them! Let the kids take home their craft and a bottle of nail polish from the game! Easy peasy!

The Aftermath

You wore yourself out getting ready for the party. The kids are gone. You don't have to fix breakfast for 10 little girls in the morning. Put your feet up! Read a book! Go to bed and sleep in! (Aren't you glad they didn't spend the night?)

We started the party after dinner (another way to avoid the gluten-free thing), but if you don't want to skip it, consider breakfast for dinner as a nice change from pizza .

The Goodie Bags

Guess what? You don't need them! Let the kids take home their craft and a bottle of nail polish from the game! Easy peasy!

The Aftermath

You wore yourself out getting ready for the party. The kids are gone. You don't have to fix breakfast for 10 little girls in the morning. Put your feet up! Read a book! Go to bed and sleep in! (Aren't you glad they didn't spend the night?)

Check out these posts for all the ideas from the party. (Images are linked.):

How to Host an Un-Slumber Party

It happens when you least expect it . . . your little girl asks the question you've been dreading since the day she was born. "Mom, can I have a sleepover?" (Okay, I'm exaggerating a bit. I don't really dread sleepovers, but somehow they don't sound quite as fun for the adults as they are for the kids!) Actually, we don't worry about sleepovers at our house at all. That's because we simply don't have them.

But, just because we don't allow sleepovers, doesn't mean we can't have a fun late-night party! We love to host "Un" Slumber Parties! (Also called Pajama parties or Late Nights.)

Here's how a late-night, pajama or un-slumber party works:

  • The kids come in their pajamas
  • They do the typical slumber party things like paint nails, watch movies and eat lots of food
  • They stay up late
  • When the fun is done, they all head home to sleep in their own beds

The Invitations

Try these Pillow Case Invitations, or shape yours like a night owl or sleep mask.

The Crafts and Games

Lots of girls means you need lots to do to keep them busy! When it comes to crafts and games, divide and conquer! I plan two activities and divide the girls in half. Fewer girls means less chance of feeling forgotten or left out. We like to play Spin the Nail Polish Bottle.

These DIY Non-Slip socks were a hit at our last party. Be sure to give the girls aprons or paint smocks so they don't ruin their clothes, though! (We used my freezer paper art aprons left over from Boo's Art party.

What happens if one of the groups is finished before the other? Be sure to have an extra activity or coloring page to pull out. We love to play Funny Bones. I've had this game since I was a kid. I'm probably really dating myself. Anyone else remember this game?

The Food

Boo has Celiac disease, so birthday cake has to be gluten free. No worries--gluten-free cake is not hard (I have a great mix), and it tastes just like the real thing, but I decided not to bother. Have you ever noticed how much cake gets thrown away at birthday parties? Kids are so busy playing (and so stuffed from party snacks) that they often barely even touch it. I decided to save the work of baking and decorating, and do a Sundae bar instead. It was a huge hit! Add a little popcorn for the movie, and we were all set!

If you've been wondering . . . it is definitely possible to put candles in ice cream! (If you haven't been wondering . . . it's still possible! Hee, hee!) And bonus--if you accidentally buy trick candles, you might just become the best mom ever. I had no idea those could be so fun!
