Have you heard of sleepunders? The new trend changing up childhood

In Features, Motherhood, Stories by Nicole Fuge

Sleepunders are the latest thing in kids’ parties – combining the fun of sleepovers with the comfort of home.

If you’ve been on social media lately (umm yes) you’ve probs seen sleepovers pop up in your feed.

So WTF is a sleepunder anyway? Sleepunders are the clever twist to traditional sleepovers that keep the fun high but the stress low. It’s all about hosting a classic sleepover-themed party, but instead of a night away from home, the little guests return to their cosy beds at the end of the evening. Genius, right?
