Default Mommy's Sleepover Survival Kit

My neighbor is having a sleepover b-day party for her 6 year old. She expects about 14 kids to be there. I thought it would be cute to send a survival kit for her. I am having creative block. Here's what I have thought of so far...

Ear Plugs- To help drown out the noise of excited over-sugared children.
KitKat- For when you need a break.
Rum- For a nightcap to help you sleep.
Toothpicks- To hold your eyes open in the morning.

Please help me think of a few more.

Thanks.

An appointment with a psychiatrist to get her head examined - 14 kids for a sleep over - she must be crazy.
Anyway, cleaning supplies is a good suggestion. They will make a mess. A fun DVD for the kids to watch and maybe allow a little bit of quiet. Hand sanitizer so they all remain healthy. A notepad to write parents phone numbers down for that 2 am call when little Susie is homesick and wants to go home. A spare teddy bear, because someone will forget theirs and won't be able to sleep without one.
Oh and coffee for the morning, she will need it.

I'm enjoying this thread because my DD is having a birthday sleepover tonight. Only five girls and they are 11 years old so I don't anticipate much trouble, but I will keep a spare teddy just in case!

Kleenex

I just helped with my best friend's daughters first overnight party and by the time I left (11:00 pm) I wanted to cry. The girls were all fighting over who was going to sleep by who. Oh my!!!

Well, it is the morning after and except for them staying up half the night, all went well. They are still sleeping (no kidding!).

Haven't heard how the sleepover went, but no calls in the middle of the night to pick up any of my children. The survival kit was a hit. Everyone got a good laugh, so it served it's point. Thank you for all the ideas. The favorite item in the kit was the toothpicks- to hold your eyes open in the morning.

It is so odd to wake up in a house with no children. I could have slept in and yet I was awake at 7:00 am.

Default Forgotten Ideas....

How about some Tums or Pepto Bismol for the tummy ache these girls are going to be giving her.

1 Kit Kat bar is not enough. How about a Mr. Goodbar to help her during the night. Hey....he wont talk back. lol

A vacuum bag/bags for the mess they are going to make. Any cleaning supplies would be funny.

Hope I helped a bit.
