As the host, you can provide the tent, sleeping bags, and pillows for your guests while they enjoy a relaxing evening in the backyard.

Cool Stuff to Do at a Sleepover
Whether you’re planning a sleepover to encourage guests to kick back and relax or get up and move, we’ve got some fun ideas for games and activities that are sure to be a hit.
Does it even count as a sleepover if no one gets pampered? At night, you and your guests can have a spa night by giving each other manicures or making face masks from kitchen ingredients. Mini pampering kits make nice party favors, so look for mini beauty items and tools available at My Sleepover Party Shop.
A slumber party is no exception when it comes to scavenger hunts. Make a list of items that the guests of your party must find and bring back to you, and reward the winning guest or team with a small treat. Putting together something like this can be a lot of fun, particularly if you are good at hiding the items. Would you like to take things one step further? You can base your entire sleepover celebration on the idea of being a detective by showing an old-school “whodunit” movie, having guests dress up as detectives, and hosting a number of trivia games.
DIY Sleep Masks
This is a great slumber party concept to try if your guests enjoy making things and being creative. Distribute blank sleep masks and have participants create their own designs. Make sure to give them a variety of accessories, such as fabric, stick-on jewels, and marker pens, so that they can truly make it their own. It’s not just something they can use that night, but something they can keep and use again.
A gaming night is the perfect party theme for a group of avid gamers. Play some card games or go for a casino theme if that’s appropriate for your audience, but don’t forget the classics like Scrabble and Ticket to Ride. Play video games instead. You can host a mini video game tournament and get competitive, or you can suggest some party staples like Mario Kart or Just Dance for everyone to enjoy.
Here’s a fun and sweet-filled game idea for your sleepover party! Hide candy canes and let the kids look for them. If you wish, you can also use individually wrapped Christmas candy.

They can use these bags to take their party treats home.
Crafting Pretty Pillowcases
If your guests are looking for a creative way to unwind, this is a great option to offer alongside our personalized sleep mask idea. Offer everyone a white or pastel-colored pillowcase and a stack of markers, and watch the creativity flow. Finally, they’ll have a one-of-a-kind memento that’s guaranteed to put a smile on their face every time they look at it.
Party Food That Everyone Will Enjoy
Food and drink are the lifeblood of any good party, and slumber parties have a lot of tasty sweet, and savory options that go well with the relaxed, homey atmosphere. You may be planning a sleepover to celebrate a birthday or a wedding, and need some suggestions for what to feed your guests.
Throwing a Pizza Party
One can never go wrong with a pizza party. This is a quick and simple idea for slumber party catering, especially if you order it. Give your party guests the option of ordering pizza from a local joint or making their own at a pizza-making station you set up in the kitchen.
Donut or Cupcake Decoration
Setting up a station where guests can decorate their own cupcakes or donuts is a safe bet. Have a table set up with a variety of donuts, cupcakes, and cake pops, both homemade and store-bought, so that your guests can decorate according to their own imaginations. You can decorate your cupcakes in any way you want by offering different kinds of frosting, sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, and other edible decorations.
Disney Themed Cookies
If your child loves Christmas, Mickey mouse, or sweet things then these Christmas cookies are the perfect treat idea! Check out more tasty and fun treats by The Partiologist.
Homemade Ice Cream Cones
Who doesn’t have a sweet tooth for ice cream or sorbet? It’s a tried-and-true favorite at sleepovers. Make sure you have a lot of different flavors and the option to serve them in cups or cones. Then, let your guests serve themselves their favorites so they can eat them while watching a movie. Do you want to take this indulgence to a whole new level? Make sure you have some soda on hand so that guests can create their own soda floats at your party.
Little Cereal Boxes
Consider what you’ll do to satisfy the appetites of your party guests the day after the celebration. Get some of the cute little boxes of cereal and set them out on the breakfast bar or table with a few spoons, bowls, and a glass of milk for a quick breakfast or late-night snack. If mini boxes are unavailable, self-serve cereal dispensers can be easily substituted.
