It's easy to send out great sleepover invitations to
all of your friends.
You can either buy great
looking invitations with pictures of sleeping bags,
flashlights, pajamas, fuzzy slippers, etc. or make
If you want to make your own - look
for fun clip art or coloring book pages to copy the
images you want onto colorful blank cards.
Buy plain pillowcases and write the slumber party
information on the pillowcase (not too large - in a
corner of the pillowcase or attach party information
separately) and ask that they decorate one side of
the pillowcase with their name and bring it to the
party. During the party have everyone sign each
others pillowcases on the back.
Get creative with
the sleepover invitation and cut out heads from
pictures of you and your friends and then paste them
to the invitations. Make it look like you are
sleeping in a sleeping bag, wearing big fuzzy
slippers or having a pillow fight.
Create little pillows by folding
squares of felt or craft foam in half to make pillow cases.
If you don’t sew, use a stapler, glue gun or fabric glue to
secure the side and bottom edge of the pillow case.
Stuff with a little cotton. Write the invitation on a
3x5 card and slip it into the pillow.
Text: WHAT HAS 12 LEGS, GIGGLES AND STAYS UP ALL

Sleepover / Slumber Party Games
Truth or Dare Game
Truth or dare game - Sit in a circle and ask each other
truth questions. If the person you ask doesn't want to
answer the question then they must do the dare. We've
made a fun list of free clean (rated G) truth or dare game
questions for you to print out for sleepovers.
Nail Spin a Color Game
Choose bright and bold nail polish colors for this game.
Start by removing everyone's nail polish so everyone's has
polish free fingernails. Put all the bottles of polish in a
pretty basket or container and set them in the center of the
circle of girls. The first sleepover girl starts by choosing
a color of fingernail polish. She lays it on it's side and
spins it around. When the polish stops spinning the girl who
the cap is pointing towards has to paint one of her nails
that color. (For a variation you can also have the girl who
the cap lands on roll one dice to see how many nails she has
to paint that color. ) When she is done painting her nail(s)
she chooses a color out of the polish basket and spins it.
Paint your toes too to make the game last longer.
Foil Project Runway Game
Make your most fabulous outfit out of aluminum foil and have
a Project Runway contest. Players each receive a roll of
aluminum foil for their creations. Set out a table full of
other items they can use to style their fashions such as
ribbons, plastic flowers, etc. Girls have to create a
complete fashion look (for fun you can set a theme such as
beach wear, evening dress, wedding dress, sportswear, etc. )
Anything can be crafted from the foil - dresses, skirts,
tops, shorts, pants, evening wear, sunglasses, tiaras,
belts, high heels, jewelry ... the options are limitless!
Have a fashion show and judge the fashion creations - be
sure to take pictures!
Blind Make Over Game
The first person puts on a blindfold and does the makeup
of the second person. Then when they are done the second
person puts on the blindfold and does the makeup of the
third person. Draw numbers to determine the order. Really
funny - take pictures so you can keep the memories.
Song Maker Game
- Pick one person at the
sleepover to go first for the game. Everyone in the
group decides on a title of a song and then the person
chosen first must make up a song to go with that title.
Example: Little bunnies on my pillow.
Drama In The Bag Game
Draw numbers to see who goes first. The first person
stands up and the number 2 person chooses an object from the
room. The first person then must make up a commercial
about the object and speak for 30 seconds about it.
Then #3 picks an object for #2's commercial and so on.
Fill shopping bags with 6 different items in
each bag. A shoe, hat, party favor etc. - each bag
should be filled with different items. Divide into teams and give
each team one bag. Go to separate rooms to make
up a skit
which includes all items in the bag. After 15 minutes
come back and perform. Variation:
Create a TV commercial or song.
Prize Auction Game
M Challenge Game
On the invitation ask everyone to
bring an inexpensive item or a "white elephant" (something
in good shape they don't want anymore) wrapped or sealed in
a bag to the sleepover. Give the everyone
$100.00 in play money and start an auction for the unwrapped
gifts. Hold up the first sealed bag and ask who will give $1
for it... and so on. For fun you can add food and gag
gifts to the auction items. Keep the items sealed and
don't let anyone know what is inside until the high bidder
opens the item. At the end you can trade bags or buy
each other's presents with their left over auction money.
With any other left over auction money you can bid on
who gets to pick where they want to sleep, what game you
play next, first dibs on the biggest piece of cake or who
chooses the music to listen to.
This sleepover game is played with m&m's, skittles or
any small candy that comes in different colors. Place
candy in a bowl. Sit in a circle and ask the guests to
choose 2 candies - without looking. Show them to
everyone and then put them in your mouth ... if they are the
same color then you can chew them, if not you have to hold
them in your mouth until your next turn when you can try and
choose 2 more of the same color. You can't chew until
you get 2 of the same color.
Oversize Board Game
This game really gets you involved ... because you are the
piece that moves around the board. On a large patio,
driveway or other cement area draw a VERY big board with
sidewalk chalk. Each square should be about 18". It
can be a circle, oval or figure 8. Inside each square,
beginning with the start square, write different things to
do if someone lands in that square. Some fun ideas are: Move
ahead 4 spaces, Jump back 3 spaces, Bark like a dog, Narrate
the game, twirl like a ballerina, etc. Use regular dice or
make your own from large boxes. A player rolls the dice,
then moves themselves (the girls are the playing pieces)
along the game board - when you land on a space then read
what it says and follow the instruction. This
sleepover game is also fun to play with flashlights at
Sleepover Ball Game
Buy a large inflatable beach
ball and in permanent marker write questions all over it.
Place everyone in a circle and throw the ball to someone.
The person who catches the ball must answer the
question that their right thumb is touching. After answering
the question they then throw the ball to another person.
Fun questions to write on the game
(The more questions on the ball the better!)
What is the
scariest movie you’ve seen?
What is your favorite color?
What are three adjectives that describe you?
Who is your favorite
your favorite movie star?
What is the nicest thing
anyone has ever said to you?
What do you say when you talk in your sleep?
What is your biggest phobia?
If you were invisible what would you do?
If you were an animal what
would you be?
your secret crush?
What was your last dream
one thing about you that no one here knows?
What do you want to do when
you grow up?
questions that you would want to be asked or things that you
would like to know about others.
Candy Hunt Sleepover Game
Pillow Fight Icebreaker
Ask everyone to bring a
flashlight (or provide them for everyone) to the slumber
party. Before everyone arrives at the party ask a
parent or sibling to hide candy all over the yard.
When it gets dark have everyone take their flashlights
outside and hunt for the candy.
For an icebreaker I usually just
have everyone start in my room and start a pillow fight whoever you hit
they must tell you something about them.
Think of fun
things that go with your slumber parties theme and write them down
on pieces of paper. Divide your friends into two
teams. The first team picks a player to act out a
word. The player chooses a word - but doesn't show
their teammates. The player then tries to act out the
word while her teammates try and guess what she is acting
out. If they guess the word the team gets 1 point.
Set a timer for 3 minutes - if the team can not guess the
word in 3 minutes then the other team gets one guess at what
the word is. If they are
right they get the point. Play to 10 points.
