Games are actually not needed at a pajama party, because most of the time is spent in giggling and pillow fighting, and the remaining half in sleeping! However, games are a sure shot way to keep each child entertained, which also means less chaos. One classic pajama party game is passing the pillow. To make this game more interesting, present a small gift to the girl who is holding the pillow when the music stops. However, make sure that each girl does get a gift! Another interesting game is Test Your Taste Buds. As the name suggests, the participants have to taste certain foodstuffs and recognize them, but the catch is that the participants are to be blindfolded. Have a variety of foods, like milkshake, mustard sauce, tea, etc., for the test. The girl who recognizes most of the items, wins.
Murder mystery is another fun pajama party game. For this, make one chit of the murderer and the rest of the chits of the murdered, and make the girls pick one chit. They are not supposed to disclose their identity. Whenever the murderer comes across a murdered player, she is supposed to wink at her. As soon as the murderer winks, the murdered person has to lay down, i.e., has to act dead until the game ends. Anyone can make an accusation. However, if the participant is wrong, she too has to be dead till the rest of the game.
The host of the pajama party has to arrange for dinner as well as breakfast of the invitees. You do not need to have any exotic dishes for this kind of party. You can just have different kinds of cookies and pizzas served. You can also serve popcorn, crackers, and pretzels, especially if it is a movie-themed party. And , ice creams are of course a must! For breakfast, you can serve bacon, sandwiches, cakes, fruit salad, etc. Just make sure that the breakfast is healthy, as the dinner generally consists of junk food.
This was all the information you will need to host a rocking girls' pajama party. Girls tend stay in small groups so make sure that none of the invitees feel left out.
