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! Magical Sleepover with Teepee Parties

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. Treats for a magical teepee sleepover

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. Fun in the tent

So this fairy tale had a happy ending, eventually!
