Growing up, the most exciting words my parents could utter were “slumber party.” It meant inviting over a few friends, renting a few movies from Blockbuster Video, and of course, having loads of slumber party snacks. The food was an important component of the unspoken battle between me and my friends for best-sleepover-house (personal pizzas with a toppings bar were always tough to beat).
Obviously, the sleepovers kids have now are a little different than the ones I had as a kid (RIP, Blockbuster), but the non-stop giggles and midnight munchies haven’t changed. We’ve put together some foolproof kid-friendly dinner, late-night snack, and breakfast ideas to help you and your young chef(s) host the best sleepover ever. Plus, we’ve thrown in some DIY projects and experiments sure to entertain kids of all ages.
