The perfect boys pjs for sleepovers
What To Pack For Little Boys Sleepovers
Pack up your little boy’s pyjamas, it’s time for his first ever sleepover!
Sleepovers are great fun for little boys! It’s the chance for your little man to hang out with his friends, eat lots of sugary snacks, watch silly movies and stay up late. It’s also his big chance to be his own man away from his mum and dad! That’s a big big thing for a little boy!
To make sure he has a good time, you should pack all the things he’ll need so he’s comfortable… but you don’t want to over pack! You certainly don’t want him to be THAT KID, a laughing stock with way too much stuff his mum packed for him! So to help you nail the packing, we’ve compiled a list of what to pack for sleepovers. Have a read through and bookmark the page for future reference too!
• Pyjamas! Make sure your little boy has a nice fresh pair as the boys are sure to play about in their pyjamas before bed. And if your child is occasionally wetting the bed, it’s a good idea to pack an extra pair of pyjamas and some pull-ups, just in case!
• Pack two pairs of clothes for the next day. It’s a good idea to pack clothes your little boy can layer up in case the house is colder or warmer than yours. A couple of T-shirts, long sleeved T-shirts or hoodies are a great ideal. Find out if you need to bring any clothes for specific activities eg swimming.
• Decide if your little boy will be most comfortable in a sleeping bag or with a doona. And don’t forget a pillow!
• Pack his towel and facecloth.
• Put his toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, comb and soap all in a resealable plastic bag. That way if they get squished in his bag he won’t end up with toothpaste all over everything!
• Depending on his age, you can add his favourite stuffed animal or toy or anything else he may need to fall asleep. You want to make sure he is comfortable as he drifts off to sleep. Even if he’s all grown up and big now, the first night away from mum and dad can be tough, a much loved companion goes a long way to being a big kid.
• Write a list of numbers to reach you in case of an emergency. You probably have exchanged phone numbers with the parents of the child having the sleepover before, but it won’t hurt to do it again.
• Let the parents know if your child has any allergies or prescribed medication, and any specific instructions. Make sure you hand the medicine over when you arrive and your child knows where it is.
Fun Sleepover Extras – Just for Boys!
• Find out beforehand if you are expected to bring any items for the party eg. A mask for a Halloween themed party or play clothes for any messy activities.
• A fun idea is to pack some goodies for your little boy to share with the group. Perhaps a special snack or even some little toy cars.
• If girly sleepovers are always about makeovers, boy’s sleepovers are generally about ghost stories!
Sending your boy with some spooky tales or props can make for an extra scarrrrrrrry night!
