Most teen girls look forward to organizing or being a part of a sleepover. After all, slumber parties give an unparalleled opportunity to them to be just themselves with their friends, without worrying about how they should look or behave (pajamas being the dress code). A slumber party can be made immensely exciting if the number of invitees is not more than ten and if some interesting, unusual, and fun things are planned.
One of the fun things to do with friends is to trade manicures, pedicures, facials, and other beauty treatments. Why spend so much on salon visits when you have friends to take care of you. So, relax and beautify each other, and present your radiant and rejuvenated selves the next day at your school or college.
Hold an event such as a talent show or a fashion show. Although it would need a little planning in advance, it will still definitely add a fun element to your slumber party. All you girls can get together and have a "red carpet" event, wherein you come dressed up like your favorite actress and then pose for photographs Hollywood-style. To make it even more real and exciting, click some photographs side by side. Another sleepover idea vis-a-vis events is to hold your own version of American Idol. Have three girls judge everyone else's 'performance'.
Give each other a makeover. Get hold of a beauty kit with eye shadows, eye liners, lipsticks, foundation, nail paints, etc. Search the Internet and learn how to apply make-up, and accordingly give each other different kinds of looks. Cute, scary, sexy, romantic, crazy - all these are actually looks that you can create by intelligently applying makeup on one another.
Speaking of sleepover games, truth or dare is the one which wins hands down in the amount of curiosity, fun, and interest that it can generate. To play this game, ask any of the girls to choose between truth or dare. If she chooses truth, ask her some fun truth questions to which she has to truthfully answer no matter what, otherwise she has to be ready to do some 'dares'.
If you girls enjoy it, plan a unique craft activity such as painting T-shirts with some cute, hilarious slogans and quotes. You will find plenty on the Internet. You will need some plain white T-shirts, painting colors, and brushes to conduct this activity. Another idea is to paint similar T-shirts and wear them together, on the same day, to your school or college.
If your idea of fun is slightly different from the rest and you want to do some scary things, here is a prank which will scare the daylights out of your friends. Plan to watch a horror movie at the sleepover. In the middle of the film, sneak away while none of your friends are looking. Make sure that the lights are switched off. Apply black shoe polish on your face and red lipstick on your eyelids and mouth. Cover yourself with a white sheet and as soon as a scary scene in the movie comes, jump from behind on your friends.
Besides these, other things to do at a sleepover are - discussing boys, sharing school or college gossip, watching movies, listening to and singing songs, dancing, cooking together, painting each other's nails, arm-wrestling, having pillow fights, etc. In between these slumber party activities, see to it that you do not go overboard. Keep the noise levels low and the excitement within limits so that you get permission from your parents for another exciting sleepover.
