Once upon a time there were two little girls, who were desperate to have a magical sleepover in a tent. Their dad put up their old, saggy tent in their playroom, but it kept falling over, as it was only made of beanpoles. The younger sister lasted about ten minutes before asking if she could sleep in her own bed. The older sister lasted a little longer. But within half an hour, they were both tucked up in their bunkbeds. The end.
Not a very magical sleepover, sadly!
Luckily, we set up a magical sleepover with tipis for the girls, as a back to school treat. And just look at how cute it all looks!
All About Magical Tipi Sleepover Parties
Teepee sleepover parties are a really cute, stress-free party idea, and I’d say they are ideal for tweens and younger. We just moved our sofas to the other end of the room, to make way for four teepees. It took around an hour to set up and the girls just needed PJs and their favourite cuddly toys! The lights are all battery-operated and don’t get hot, so they are ideal for kids.
Magical teepee parties make the perfect birthday party, for small groups.
Our Magical Teepee Party
We invited the girls’ cousin and Thea’s best friend for the afternoon, to enjoy the tipi party.
I think it’s safe to say they had an amazing time.
Check out those grins!
They particularly enjoyed the sweets and chocolate buttons.
Our Magical Sleepover
Ava and Thea couldn’t wait to go to bed, and were so excited for their magical sleepover. Ava got her teepee all ready with her favourite toys.
The girls were very eager to go to ‘bed’, and were tucked up nice and early at about 6.30.
I was a little worried they wouldn’t go to sleep very well, but Thea went straight to sleep at 7 o’clock (amazing!) and Ava nodded off about half an hour later.
The next morning, they were super happy to have free reign of the TV. Then they made the tents into a school for a couple of hours.
So this fairy tale had a happy ending, eventually!
How to Create Your Own Magical Teepee Party
If you want to hold your own magical sleepover, here is a hand list with links to where you can find them:
- You can buy an indoor teepee tent here, and choose from several different colours.
- Add a cot bed mattress, which you buy find here – it will stick out of the front of the tent like in my photos.
- You may need a waterproof sheet, if you have little kids.
- Buy LED battery-operated string lights covered in flowers here.
- Grab a couple of soft pink cellular blankets here.
- This vintage-style LED battery-operated lantern has a built in timer.
- The girls love the Sasse & Belle star nightlights that you can find here.
- And these cloud cushions are just too cute too.
