Late night special: celebrating longer days with your little ones

Celebrating longer days with your little ones during late summer nights can be a magical and memorable experience. You know you enjoy it just as much as they do! Here are some ideas for a late-night special with your kids:


Take advantage of the clear summer skies to go stargazing with your little ones. Lay out a blanket in your backyard and open up a constellations app to show your kids the names of stars and stories behind what's right in front of you.

Nighttime picnic

Pack a picnic basket with your kids favourite snacks and have a late-night picnic under the stars. Bring a flashlight for added fun and a few games to play too! Make sure your kiddies are comfy and warm with our Mini PJ range available for boys and girls!

Campfire & s’mores

Light up the brazier, fire pit or open fireplace at home. Find some sticks for your marshmallows and set up a s’mores station with bikkies and chocolate - once your marshmallows are toasted to perfection, sandwich them in between your biscuits with a square of chocolate and smush them together for the ultimate treat they’ll never forget!

Outdoor movie night

Set up an outdoor movie screening with a projector and a white sheet in your backyard. Bring out some blankets, pillows and a mattress to make it that much more comfortable. Enjoy a family-friendly movie under the stars with your favourite post dinner snacks.

Pyjama party

Set up some treats and a comfy space for a little pyjama party. Put on some funky music and dance around in your PJ’s. Get matching with your little ones thanks to The Sleepover. Our Mini Sienna Short PJ Set in Dusty Rose/White is the cutest fit for your girl and even has a matching set for mum!

The night before Christmas

With Christmas coming in hot, gather around the Christmas tree with your little ones and share stories about Santa and maybe even open one present early. Make sure your kids look the part for your family Christmas Eve photo with our Mini girls PJS and our Mini Boys PJS.
