"Fun is good!" - Dr. Seuss
The time has come. You are throwing your first sleepover for your child and his/her friends. You want to make sure everyone has a fun time and that they go home telling their parents how nice your house was, right?!
We have compiled a list of 7 tips to help you throw the best sleepover EVER!
Clean. Your home is already super clean, right? Having your child’s friends over means that their parents will be over to drop them off and pick them up. Making sure that your home looks great will make you feel better and will also impress your guests.
Furniture. What are the sleeping arrangements for the sleepover? Does your child have a bunk bed that their friends can stay on? There are many furniture stores like ours that sell awesome furniture for children. The beds come in all shapes and sizes and are perfect for sleepovers. Berg Furniture makes elaborate kids furniture. They even make a bunk bed that has three beds in it! If you don't have enough beds for everyone, make sure you have a lot of extra pillows and blankets.

Food. Stock up on healthy snacks but also include some common junk food. You don’t want to be the health nut mom but you also want to make sure you aren't feeding them tons of sugar! For snacks choose vacuum ready foods like pretzels, popcorn and chips. Pizza for dinner is a simple choice that most children love.
Drinks. Juice, water and milk are the best choices for sleepovers. Stay away from soda because it could keep them up at night.
Crafts. Getting some craft ideas from Pinterest will give the kids something to do that is fun and exciting. They can make bracelets, create cards for a certain holiday or even paint picture frames.
Movies. Pick something that is popular now! Also, older Disney movies are always a big hit!
Breakfast. Making a small breakfast for your child and their friends will prepare them for the day. It is the perfect ending to the best sleepover EVER.
