Pack for a sleepover by placing a change of clothing, pajamas, a comfort item, toiletries and a flashlight in a small bag with a pocket. Pack a separate packet with emergency information for the hosts.
- Select a small bag
Use a backpack, a duffel bag or a small suitcase that is easy for the child to carry but large enough to hold everything she needs. Choose one with small interior pockets to keep the items organized.
- Add clothing for the next day
Let the child select a comfortable outfit to wear the next day. Include an extra pair of socks and an extra shirt.
- Add pajamas
Let your child select season-appropriate pajamas for the sleepover. Encourage your child to choose a comfortable pajama set, or purchase a new one for the occasion.
- Put a comfort item on top
Place a small pillow, blanket, doll or favorite stuffed animal at the top of the bag where it is easily accessible.
- Pack the pocket
Put your child's toothbrush in a toothbrush holder, and stick it in one of the bag's small pockets. Add travel-sized toothpaste, a comb or brush, and a flashlight for your child in case she wakes during the night.
- Pack a separate bag for the hosts
Place your emergency numbers and any special information about allergies and medications in a large resealable plastic bag. Give it to the host parents when you arrive.
