In a moment of weakness I have agreed to a sleepover for all the girls in my DD's class! If they all accept then that would mean 8 girls in total including DD.
I won't be able to take them out anywhere as they won't all fit in the car and DH will have been dispatched off to sleep somewhere else with my 2 younger kids.
So how much organising do you think I should do? They'll be arriving at 5pm and then I've asked for them to be picked up around 10am the following morning. I'll give them dinner and breakfast of course.
DD has asked for 'spa' type activities! No idea where she got that from though, she's never been in a spa!! Other than that I was thinking of having some back up activities like cupcake decorating and crafts and some DVDs but only bring those out if it looks like they're needed.
When I did it we filled the time with Pizza making Face masks Nail painting Crafty stuff sticking glitter etc Girly film Pop corn Dancing And expect them to sleep. Another tip if you do it again. Do it on a Friday night that way it doesn't take over the whole weekend. Good luck.
Thanks Hey! I wanted a Saturday cos I work as a childminder and don't finish work until 6ish usually. I know I'll be knackered and grumpy and much less amenable to noise and a late night after a day dealing with noisy toddlers!!
Plus the Saturday is her actual birthday so we can avoid doing a treat for friends and another treat on her actual birthday which can work out quite expensive.
I just hope enough kids can come - always a risk having a party over the Christmas holidays.
