A sleepover is truly one of the most wonderful activities in
the life of a young girl. It’s a chance for her to come together with a few of
her best friends and take part in overnight activities (under the supervision
of parents, of course), all with the added excitement of more fun the next day.
If you have a little girl who’s just aching to have a
sleepover then, it’s important you show up with a few sleepover activities to
keep the fun going all night. And if you need some ideas, try these seven fun
activities for girls before you shut off the lights:
1. Make a Pillow or
Making a pillow or blanket fort is a great activity for
girls that requires nothing more than a few sheets, some furniture, and a wild
imagination. Set up the fort and let the girls sit inside telling ghost stories
and eating snacks.
2. Pop the Balloon
To mark the passing of each hour, blow up one balloon for
each hour until bedtime (10 o’clock, for example). On the balloons write down
subsequent numbers (for example, 7 o’clock, 8 o’clock, etc.), and stuff each
balloon with an activity. When the clock strikes the number, pop the balloon
together, and perform whatever activity is inside.
3. Tie-Dye a T-Shirt
This is a great way to keep the girls busy, as well as
provide them with a fun memento of the night. Get some shirt dyes, and pick up as
many white t-shirts as there are girls. Spend part of the evening making the
shirts, and they should be ready to wear the next morning.
4. Do Your Nails
Many girls love to paint and glitter their nails at home. During
the sleepover then, have your little girl and their friends paint their own
nails with the Mega Nail Salon. This fun new kit from Imagine Toys®
comes with everything the girls will need to make beautiful nails in just a few
5. Play Board Games –
or Make Your Own
Board games are fun activities for girls that can keep them
entertained for hours. If your daughter has a wild imagination though, consider
increasing the fun by getting all of the supplies you need to make your own
board game at home. Let the girls draw a board, create pieces, and craft
anything else they need to make their own working game.
6. Question Ball
To have the girls get to know each other better, grab a
giant beach ball, blow it up, and write different questions all over the
surface. Then, have the girls sit in a circle and toss the ball back and forth,
and have them ask whatever question they choose.
7. Throw a Dance
Girls love to dance, and there is no better time and place
to get groovy than at a sleepover. Pick some of your daughter’s favorite tunes,
pick up a plastic disco ball if you can, and turn off the lights for a night
full of dancing fun.
