Part 1 of 3: Organizing Wearing Clothes and Bedding

Step 1. Get a backpack

It can be your school bag or a purse, as long as it's the right size to store all your belongings. If the invitation is last minute, you may not have time to pick up a suitcase, so use whatever you have on hand.

  • If you're using your school bag, take out everything you won't need. This way, you won't run the risk of losing your school supplies and will make better use of the space inside.
  • If you don't have a sleeping bag, get some blankets to lay on the floor. You can also ask another friend who is going to the party if she has a spare sleeping bag.

Step 2. Bring a sleeping bag or blanket and pillow

Check with the party hostess for plans to accommodate everyone. If you are going to sleep on the floor, bring a sleeping bag. If sleeping on a bed or sofa, bring a blanket and pillow.

Send a message to your friend or call to find out how everyone will be accommodated. Maybe your friend's parents already have blankets and pillows. In that case, you won't need to take it. Leave any room left in your backpack for snacks and games

Step 3. Choose your best pajamas

Maybe your favorite pajamas are a little frayed. Prefer the newest pajamas you have or any other pajamas you have on hand. If you're bringing used pajamas, make sure they're clean.

If you'd like to bring a pair of pajamas that aren't clean, check with your parents to see if you can wash them quickly before the slumber party

Step 4. Choose your best clean clothes for the next day

You'll probably need something to wear in the morning, especially if you and your friends are going to do something like going to school or eating breakfast. Pick a clean pair of clothes from the closet to wear the next day.

  • Fold the clothes carefully when putting them in the suitcase to prevent them from being crushed.
  • Store clothes away from drinks and snacks. It might be a good idea to put them in a plastic bag before putting them in your backpack.

Step 1. Think about everything you wear at night and in the morning

It can be helpful to do a mind scan of your routine before you pack your backpack. That way you'll be sure you won't forget anything. See what you use in your routine before bed and when you wake up to ensure you have everything you need.

It can be helpful to have a pen and paper handy to jot down items as you remember

Step 2. Get the hygiene products you use in the morning or before going to sleep

You will need a toothbrush and toothpaste to brush your teeth before bed and upon waking up. Also, if you perform any face care procedures, such as washing your face before bed, bring the products you use. If you are going to take a shower, take your shampoo, conditioner, soap and any other product in your routine, including deodorant and towel.

If you have takeout packages, put your shampoo and conditioner in them as they take up less space

Step 3. If you wear glasses, take the products you usually use for eye care

If you wear glasses or contact lenses, you will probably need to go without them overnight. Take the case where you keep your glasses or lenses, in addition to the sanitizing solution you use.

As it's easy to lose contact lenses, bring an extra pair if you can

Step 4. If necessary, take medication

If you take medication, it's essential to remember to put it in your backpack. With the excitement of going to the party, it's very easy to forget essential but boring items like medicine. However, if you take medication every day, you need to put it in your backpack so your parents don't have to take it to you later in the middle of the night.

Step 5. Remember to bring your device chargers

If you're taking your cell phone or computer to the party, pack the chargers in your backpack as well. Otherwise, if you're playing something on your cell phone, you'll end up on your side if your phone runs out of battery.

However, it's good to check with your friend first. Some parents may not authorize the use of cell phones at sleepovers and it is important to respect the house rules

Step 1. Bring snacks

If the sleepover was scheduled at the last minute, chances are your friend's parents didn't have time to prepare things for you to eat, so contribute to the party by bringing some snacks. You can take some packets of biscuits, bisnaguinhas, chocolate or even something simple, like a bag of snacks.

It's a good idea to check with the hostess first. See if she needs any food or drinks and be prepared to bring what you order

Step 2. Bring your makeup

A beauty session can be a fun program for a sleepover. Take your makeup bag so you and your friends can get dressed. Bring along a few different items, if you have one, like glowing eyeshadows or brightly colored lipsticks.

Step 3. Take your favorite game

Sleepovers can get boring if you don't have any fun activities to entertain everyone. Group games are great for these times, so pack games that can include all the party guests.

If you don't have space to take board games, bring at least one deck. Most card games are made for multiple players
