Fun sleepover ideas!

Call up the girls and kick off your weekend with an awesome sleepover! Here are some fun ideas to make the night a success:


  • Backyard Campout - Set up a tent and have everyone bring their sleeping bags, warm clothes, and the scariest ghost stories they know! If your parents say it's okay, you could even get a campfire going and toast some marshmallows! 
  • Krazy for Karaoke - Sing it girl! Put on your own private concert with your friends, and everyone gets to show their star power! If you're feeling creative, you could even have a little award ceremony at the end with sparkling apple cider (but make sure there's a fun award for everyone!).
  • Movie Marathon - Your favorite flicks, lots of popcorn, and your friends - what more could a girl want?! Either take turns deciding what movie is on, or all agree on a series you could watch, like Harry Potter or all the Ice Age movies. 
  • Marvelous Makeovers - Get out the mud masks and curlers... it's time to get gorgeous! You can help each other paint your nails, teach your friends how to french braid, or have fun experimenting with crazy new hairstyles! Have a healthy snack for this sleepover, like veggies and dip, or fruit smoothies!

Do's & Don'ts:

  • DO ask your parents first, keep it to a small group, and clean up after yourselves!
  • DON'T force sleepyheads to stay awake, don't play games that lead to embarrassment, and don't play tricks on the first one asleep. You do not want any of your friends to feel uncomfortable at your sleepover!


Do you have any great sleepover ideas to share?!

My sleepover idea is to play Just Dance 4. It is really fun and can be great exercise too.

I did that over spring break. That was a great idea to share pink225!

An at home spa can be really fun at sleepovers! You and your freinds can do a face mask, manicure, pedicure, massages, hair styling, makeovers, and make your own lip gloss. You need a tiny container, Vaseline, and two Pixy Stix for everyone. First you put some Vaseline inside a tiny container, then you put two different flavored Pixy Stix in the container. Finally you mix the Vaseline and Pixy Stix real good, then put some on you lips. To make a face mask, you need to mix some oatmeal, plain yogurt, and honey together. Then you need to smear it on your face. Put a cucumber on your eyes, and then relax for 10 minutes. When your 10 minutes are over, you need to wash off your face mask and see how shiney your face is. For the manicure and pedicure, put out some different color nail polish (be sure to include glitter and clear), nail polish remover, cotton swabs, and nail art stickers. Let your friends pick out whatever color they want. If you accidently used a color you don't want or made a smudge, don't panic. Put a few drop of nail polish remover on a cotton swab, then you wipe your nail until the polish comes off. My advice for a shiny manicure or pedicure is two put a clear coat over your nails after you painted it. That would add some shine to your nails. If your nail polish is too sticky, don't worry. Just add a few drops of nail polish remover inside the bottle, now shake the little bottle. Now your nail polish won't be so sticky anymore. When you are painting your nails, remember to only paint one or two layers. Oh, I totally forgot, before you paint your nails, you need to clip and trim your nails, file it, buff it, brush your nails with a nail brush, and get all the dirt out from under you nails, then soak them in a tub of water for five minutes. That will keep your nails clean and soft, and will keep the polish from chipping. Now for the massage, you and your friends can form a line and give each other shoulder massages, after five minutes, the first person in line will have to go to the back of the line so that everyone will have a chance to have their shoulders massaged. For the hair styling, everyone will have a partner, you and your partner can style each other's hair by braiding, adding accessories, twisting, and many more! Just be careful not to pull or tangle your partner's hair. If your mom lets you do hair spray, then spread out a towel, and let your friend choose which color of hair spray they want, have a pair of goggles to keep your eyes from getting hair spray in them, and keep the door open so that the smell will stay out of your room. Then do a fashion show, in the middle of the hall way and show off your fabulous new look. Your family can be the audience and watch the show. Be sure to have some music on. For the party favors, give each of your guests a small gift bag filled with a hair brush, a small bottle of nail polish, a bath fizzer, sunglasses, a headband, a bracelet, a tube of lip gloss, a ring, and a nail polish. A spa slumber party would be a sleepover that you and your friends can remember forever!

Candy night!!!!! Yeah at school you and your friends aren't allowed to have candy but at home you can! Just get tons of candy and put it in bowls. Then have your friends make a candy mountain! That would be awesome!

you could make your own candy too!

OMG! So I did a combination of the both last year for my Bday! So first we did makeup and curled and straightened our hair and put eye shadow. I was a daredevil so I had my bff do it to me blindfolded. I looked like a clown but I kept it on anyways. Then we did our nails and did a singing thing. We had a bunch of kareoke songs burned on a CD so we each got turns standing on our table and dancing and singing. We had one throphy for the winner and halarious ribbons. We had a great time!

Is this the real Bella and Zendaya?? Can we be cyber bffs!! I love you guys!!!

It would be cool if they are the real bella and Zendaya I want to be cyber BFF's too!

I'd love to be your cyber friend because you seem so amazing! But no I'm not actually Bella and Zendaya. But I hope we can still be friends♥

Thanks DG!!! This is SOOOOO AWESOME!!!!:-):-);-)<3<3<3:-):-);-)

First you buy some cheep make up from your local dollar store. Then at the sleep over one person gets blindfolded (that person will give the make-over) while the other one gets the make-over! It is so fun! Some other ideas are you can paint nails,or you can dress up and sing into hair brushes. You can draw a picture of your friend once with your eyes closed and then again with your eyes open to see the difference! You can also watch chick-flicks and CRY YOUR EYES OUT! If you are a tom-boy. You can play glow in the dark foot ball! you take a glow stick,make it glow and toss it around outside! (safety glasses strongly advised.) You can also make up you own sport idea's and play them! or just play board games. or watch sports on TV! or your fav TV shows! Just make sure that your friend likes that show too!

Awesome ideas!

Say, you really like this movie/show but your friend is not allowed to watch it or does not like it watch something else that you both enjoy! You both want to have fun! So do stuff that you both are aloud to do! Ohhh!!!! You can also run around in the store with PJS on,singing or dancing all around the store! Try to make it as goofy as possible!

That sound super funny and awesome, I'm gonna try that!

That sounds great! You could also try a dinner party, make your own pizza party, a baking party, a dance party and a maybe even a video game party. C: the choice is all yours.

Ok so first, you'll need a lot of nail polishes (all different colors of course!). Next, you and your friends need to sit in a circle. Pick a random color, spin it and whoever it points to, that person has to paint one of there nails that color! You'll have funky nails! All your nails will be different colors!

Did this at my sleepovr and it was a lot of fun :)
