Check out our top tips on how to host the best PJ party. We have fun activities for the kids, games and arts and crafts to bring out their creative side. Why not get the kid's involved in our fun PJ party activities below...

How To Build A Blanket Fort

  • 1. Firstly find a safe place with lots of space to start building your blanket fort.
  • 2. Gather as many blankets, pillows and sheets to create the den.
  • 3. Find some chairs or other objects to hold the blankets up.
  • 4. Drape the sheets or blankets over the chairs and pin in place with safety pins or pegs .
  • 5. Now add some cushions and more blankets to make the inside even more cosy.
  • 6. There you have it, a blanket fort! You can even add a door by draping the sheets across the front.

How To Play Sleeping Lions

Gather the kid’s together to play a game of sleepy lions. This game will help them wind down after a fun filled sleepover and get them ready for bedtime.

  • 1. Pick 1-2 kids at random to be the hunters whilst all the other players lie still on the floor with their eyes closed pretending to be asleep (snoring optional!)
  • 2. The hunter’s prowl through the room attempting to make the sleeping lions laugh by telling jokes, making silly noises etc. However the hunters are not allowed to touch the lions!
  • 3. If a lion moves they are tapped on the shoulder and must get up to join the hunters
  • 4. The last child on the floor wins!
