From PJs to popcorn to pillow fights, sleepovers are a popular party pick for children’s birthdays, back to school reunions and other special occasions. Most kids have been to lots of slumber parties, so hosting the event of their dreams will take a little organization and imagination. These creative tips will help you plan a gathering the kids are sure to remember…and mom and dad won’t lose sleep over the cost!

  • Save on party supplies. Get the party started with invitations, plates, napkins, and decorations in bright colours and cool designs. Check out the Walmart flyer on Flyerland.ca for outstanding prices.
  • Choose a fun theme. Wake up the celebration by choosing an entertaining theme like Academy Award Night. Roll out the red carpet, have guests dress in their Hollywood best, watch Oscar winning films and decorate with gold and glittering stars. Or select another popular theme like Lost, Twilight or Canadian Idol—it’s fun to get creative! Michael’s has all of your theme-party supplies.
  • Plan the party space. Ask each guest to bring a sleeping bag and pillow, and set up the party in the rec room with a TV to watch movies or hold a video game tournament, a CD player for music, board games and more. Be sure to have water and healthy snacks nearby. See the Zellers flyer on Flyerland.ca for deals on CDs, DVDs and games.
  • Create edible art. For an amusing activity and meal all in one have the kids make their own food. Pizza is an easy choice—simply buy or make pizza dough, roll it out and let the kids create fun shapes. Load up with sauce, cheese and healthy toppings and they can feast on their masterpieces.  Check out the deals at Loblaws, Save-On-Foods or Metro and stock up.
  • Pick out new PJs. The perfect pyjamas are an important part of the ultimate slumber party, so choose new ones for the occasion. Or give each guest new jammies instead of a loot bag. Visit Flyerland.ca for special savings from Sears and The Bay.
  • Organize a “big girl” slumber party. Just because you’re not a kid anymore doesn’t mean you have to give up sleepovers! Plan a fabulous evening with friends—have everyone bring their favourite food, do manicures and pedicures, and watch all the best chick flicks. Or check out travel deals on Flyerland.ca and escape to a resort complete with a relaxing spa and delicious dining.
