9 Fun Things to Do at a Sleepover

We’ve known it since we were kids—there's nothing quite as fun as a party that stretches joyously from dusk till dawn. If you’re the one who is looking to host a memorable event, whether it's a kid's party or a laid-back weekend night, there are countless creative twists that you can do to make your sleepover night memorable.

Who doesn’t like tucking all night in comfy silk pajamas, wearing cozy slippers, and wearing a face mask while watching timeless movie classics like When Harry Met Sally? Let's not overlook the delight experienced by children, teenagers, and adults alike as they wake up the next morning to indulge in the bliss of breakfast in bed, shared with dear friends.

Given this year's trend of staying in rather than going out, sleepovers have become the new go-to for gatherings. So, relax, laugh, and enjoy the company with these 9 fun things you can do at a sleepover.

1. Play “Celebrity”

Play “Celebrity”

Get ready for a unique twist on Charades! Each player writes down the name of a celebrity (real, fictional, or historical) and tosses it into a bowl. During the first round, players can say anything except for the actual celebrity's name to help their teammates guess who's on the paper.

In the second round, the same names return to the bowl, but this time, players are restricted to using only one word. Finally, in the last round, the names are back in the bowl, and the challenge is to act them out like classic charades. As the players improve, you can add more names to the bowl for even more fun and excitement!

2. Nail Art is the New Trend!

Take your usual manicure/pedicure session to the next level by adding a fun twist with a game of "Spin the bottle." Gather a variety of unique nail polish colors and have everyone sit in a circle.

Place the bottle of polish in the center and give it a spin. When it stops, the person it points to must paint their nails with that color. Paint only one nail with that color for an extra dose of laughter, resulting in a hilarious manicure by the end of the game! It can be an entertaining activity, especially for a girl's sleepover.
