Plan a Sleepover Fit for a King
President and Mrs. Roosevelt loved to be surrounded by family and friends and nearly always had house guests. In 1939, the Roosevelts invited the King and Queen of England to be overnight guests at their home in Hyde Park, and FDR and the King stayed up late into the night talking about shared interests and world affairs.
Why not plan a sleepover fit for a King?
Ask your parents if you can invite a friend or two over to spend the night.
- Who would you invite (it doesn’t have to be as fancy as the King and Queen of England)?
- What would you do – watch movies, play video games, tell scary stories?
- What special snacks would you serve?
- What would you and your friends talk about?
- How late would you stay up?
