Girls love to have their friend’s sleepover and boys are NO different! Just because they're boys doesn't mean they won't enjoy the excitement of a sleepover and all the antics that go with it. So throw your son a sleepover and watch all the boys have a great party!

Sleepover Party Ideas & Decorations

Decorating for a sleepover party is different than decorating for a more traditional birthday party, because there is LESS TO DO! All you need is to clear out a large space in your home by rearranging furniture. Then provide some pillows and sleeping bags, add a few remote control cars, some Hot Wheels and Legos for fun. 

There should be some decorations but it can be minimal such as:

  • A happy birthday banner for the birthday boy.
  • Glow in the dark balloons and glow sticks
  • Have party snacks readily available such as chips, popcorn, candy and punch.  As a fun element, but not essential, adda  couple of unique snacks such as a cotton candy machine, snowcone maker or fresh popped popcorn.


Goody Bag Ideas - Fill the bags with fun "BOY" items like plastic bugs, dinosaurs, superhero action figures, trading cards or fake tattoos. And don't forget the candy.
