Are your kids enjoying the winter vacation?

The holiday hustle and bustle is over and it's time to relax and unwind. Well, it's the same for the kids from school. One thing children really love is to get together with their friends and family for the almighty sleepovers. It's almost like a rite of passage - a part of growing up that we always remember.

Here are a few tips on planning a child's sleepover, no matter what the age. Keep the time frame and activities age-appropriate and all should go well. Also look into craft kits and supplies to keep the kids entertained and get their creative juices flowing. OK, mom and dad, it may be one long night, but your children will be forever grateful for this experience!
