Fun Sleepover Ideas: Camping Inside & Out

The beloved sleepover, or slumber party, is a childhood rite of passage that all kids should have the joy of experiencing. There is nothing quite as exciting for a little one as donning their favourite PJs and partaking in an evening of yummy snacks, fun games and late-night chatter with their best friends. This excitement is often doubled when the novelty of camping in a tent is added to the mix!

Ignite your little one’s sense of adventure with the Hip Kids teepee play tents! Perfect for indoor and outdoor use, your little explorer will be able to enjoy an indoor sleepover or an exciting outdoor campout with their friends. Whether they are venturing into the great outdoors or enjoying a cosy indoor pyjama party, prepare your little one for the campout of a lifetime with these fun ideas.

The Cosy Indoor Campout

Movie Marathon

Nothing says sleepover like a movie marathon! Prepare the snacks and stock up on popcorn for a screening night of all of your child’s favourite flicks. You can even encourage your guests to submit film requests with their RSVP to ensure you please the whole crowd with your selection of films.

Get Crafty

Opt for a relaxing spa theme with DIY facemasks and a manicure station, or help your guests make their own glow-in-the-dark slime! Whatever the kiddies are interested in, there are endless creative activities to keep them entertained.

The Adventurous Outdoor Campout

Playtime Fun

An outdoor sleepover is the perfect opportunity to whip out everyone’s favourite classic schoolyard games. From stuck in the mud to red rover and tag, little ones will love having a good run around before it’s time to crash under the stars.  

Bust a Move

Get the tunes pumping for a fun karaoke and choreography competition. Have your guests form teams and create a song and dance routine to perform in front of the other kids. You can coax shy kiddies to get involved by offering a small prize for the winner, but always make sure each guest feels comfortable and supported.

Does your little one have a birthday on the horizon, or are they just wanting to have some fun with their friends? Make their party extra special by turning their sleepover into a campout and taking inspiration from our sleepover ideas!
