Sleepover for 8 year old boys!

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
For Riley's birthday i said he could have a sleepover. Now i'm kicking myself.

What should i do with boys? They won't be dropped off til 6. We are going to do make your own pizza. We have a movie and video games...They each get a small Lego toy to build.

What else would they like to do?

Help!!!

They are boys. They will probably entertain each other! I wouldn't worry to much about having a lot of activities planned. Have fun!

I've never had to do a lot of 'planning' in terms of activities for sleepovers. My kids and their friends just do their thing. Whether it's outside, inside etc I wouldn't worry about it too much. Maybe ask your child what he'd like to do in terms of planned activities (if any)?

My dd is the sleepover queen (ugh) and I never have planned activities. Occassionally I'll rent a movie for them, but that's it. Like everyone else said, I just let them do their own thing and entertain each other. What you already have lined up sounds like enough.

I just do not want them to get bored!!!!! That would not be good. My house isn't that large and i don't want them tearing it apart. KWIM?

Only thing I can think of to mention is to just get some take and bake pizzas from somewhere. Make your own pizzas with a bunch of boys sounds a little messy to me. Maybe it's not. As for other activities, unless is it really cold out, you could kick them all outside and they could play football or something. Anything where they are running around outside and not in, plus something to get them warn out too. Other than that, movies and video games sound great.

I agree. Just let them play and have fun. The best times at sleep overs aren't mom planned or led activities, but just the boys playing. My only advice from having zillions of sleep overs is to let them be outside and doing something active as long as they can. Wear them out before they come inside. Otherwise they'll have too much energy and drive you nuts. Good luck. My kids LOVE having sleepover bday parties and remember them fondly so you're doing a nice thing for your kids.
