Boys Sleepover Ideas

Got a boys sleepover party coming up, and wondering how to entertain them the whole night through? Here are our top boy’s sleepover ideas – guaranteed to keep the kids well occupied and out of mischief!

Party Food

For a sleepover party, you’ll be feeding the kids dinner, so you’ll need to provide something fairly substantial. DIY pizza making is a great way to satisfy the hungry hordes. Everyone can make pizza to their own taste, you don’t have to do much food preparation, plus it’s a fun party activity. All you need to do is prep and lay out toppings, including ham, chopped vegetables, grated cheese and tomato paste. Give all the kids a pizza base (which can be dough, flat bread or even open muffins), and let them get creative. You’ll need to supervise the cooking, but that’s about it.

Continue the DIY theme through to dessert, with a make-your-own-sundae station. Once again, lay out toppings, scoop the ice cream into bowls, and let the kids go to town.

Boys Sleepover Decoration Ideas

Have the kids camp out in the loungeroom with an amazing tent setup from  SleepoversRus. There are loads of boy-friendly colour schemes and themes to choose from – including ‘Into The Woods’, ‘Surfs Up’ and ‘Bootcamp’ themes. These setups come with strings of battery powered lights and fun details like nightlights, breakfast trays and lanterns, so you don’t need to buy anything more to make it look great. Plus, you can DIY assembly or have our staff do it for you.

If you would like to add your own finishing touches, how about sticking glow-in-the-dark stars to the ceiling? Or, to save your paintwork, cut star shapes out of a circle of thick card and cover a table lantern with it for a stellar night-sky projection.

Boys Sleepover Game Ideas

Torchlight Treasure Hunt

Before the party, hide treasures in the back yard, then give each of the kids a small torch and send them out in the dark on a hunt. You can hide gold coins, small toys or even glow sticks (remember to activate them before hiding).

Add a Torchlight Treasure Hunt onto your SleepoversRus party booking – we provide everything you need to keep the kids entertained for at least an hour.

Glow-In-The-Dark Bowling

Remove the labels from six small water bottles and drop a glow stick into each one. Make sure you crack and shake the sticks first to activate them. Tape lids shut, find a ball and voila – glow in the dark bowling!

Pom Pom Shooters

These shooters are easy to make and safe to fire at people. For each shooter, you’ll need a 10cm/4 inch length of pool noodle, a balloon, some duct tape and a few pom poms. Take a balloon, tie the end, then cut a slice off the round end. Stretch this cut opening over one end of your piece of pool noodle and secure it with duct tape. To fire your shooter, insert a few small pom poms, pull the tied end of the balloon back, and fire.

The boys will have great fun firing pom poms at each other, but you can also draw a target on a piece of poster paper and run a shooting competition, with prizes for hitting the target.

 

Boys Sleepover Party Favours

It’s a great idea to provide toothbrushes for all – they make an excellent non-lolly party favour, plus are handy if someone forgets their own brush. All SleepoversRus slumber parties come with a complimentary dental kit and a sleep mask for all guests. The sleep masks can also double as blindfolds should you wish to play the fun Chocolate Tasting Game.

Mini LED torches are also great party favours. The kids will have great fun using them in the dark, and they’re handy for middle-of-the-night trips to the bathroom through an unfamiliar house.
