These are some of our favorite sleepover party ideas when it comes to activities for girls, so sit down, get comfortable and start reading.
1. MOVIE TIME
A movie is always a good idea, this one is a classic, a party pleaser if you wish. Set up a theater in your living room, take out all the blankets and pillows you have available in your home and put them in your couch, so you can have the perfect setup for enjoying the movie. And last but not least, choose a film that will keep a group of girls glued to the screen, here are some titles that can work: Pitch Perfect, To all the boys I’ve loved before, Mohana.
2. PILLOW FORTS: A MUST FOR ANY SLEEPOVER
No sleepover is complete without a pillow fort. The best part of this activity is that you don’t have to plan anything, you just have to use every pillow, cushion, blankets and sleeping bag you can find in your house and let the kids do the rest. It’s their job to build the biggest, strongest fort they can do, and when they finish, they can eat snacks, read, giggle (something that should happen a lot in a sleepover) and, if they want, they can also sleep in them.
3. BLINDFOLD MAKEOVER
It’s no secret most girls love playing with makeup, but how can we make that even cooler? Play with makeup while being blindfolded. The girls can work in pairs, the person that’s going to be applying the makeup will also be the one that’s blindfolded. We’re sure the results will make you, and the girls, cry with laughter. Also, you have to take pictures of every moment of it.
4. SPIN THE NAIL POLISH
Painting your nails can be a little boring, but with this game it won’t ever be again. This is how it works, you will arrange some bottles of nail polish, all of them of different colors, in a circle, and in the middle of it you will put a spinner, and whichever color it lands on, the person who spinned it has to paint one toenail that color. The game finishes when all 10 toes on all of the girls have been painted. You will love the results, very colorful feet.
5. SPA TIME
Another thing women love, both adults and kids, is skincare, taking care of themselves, and having some quality time for some self love. And, what’s better for this than some spa time, face masking, hair masking, some feet and body massages, just laying on the floor while pampering yourself and relaxing, everything at the same time. This activity, more than a game, could be a great way for the girls to chill out, finish the night, and prepare them for some sleep.
6. DECORATE YOUR PILLOWCASE
This activity not only will give the girls something to do, it will also leave them with an amazing souvenir of an equally amazing night. Give the girls some white plain pillowcases and some materials like fabric markers and some thread, so they can put their stamp on it, personalize it as unique as they can, have a great time while doing it, and keep it forever.
7. RUNWAY SHOW
Challenge the girls to bring out all their creativity and put together some looks for the best sleepover runway ever. They have to prepare the outfit, add some props, do their hair and walk on the catwalk showing their clothes. To make it more fun, you can tell them to have a talent show so they can exhibit what they do best.
8. LEARN A TIK TOK CHOREOGRAPHY
Take your phone and scroll through Tik Tok, look for the challenge and/or choreography that’s trending right now and dare the girls to learn the moves so you can record it and post it on Tik Tok, this will take them a while, trust us, but most important it will so fun for them.
