Sleepover Invitation Ideas
It's easy to send out great sleepover invitations to all of your friends.
You can either buy great looking invitations with pictures of sleeping bags, flashlights, pajamas, fuzzy slippers, etc. or make them yourself.
If you want to make your own - look for fun clip art or coloring book pages to copy the images you want onto colorful blank cards.
Buy plain pillowcases and write the slumber party information on the pillowcase (not too large - in a corner of the pillowcase or attach party information separately) and ask that they decorate one side of the pillowcase with their name and bring it to the party. During the party have everyone sign each others pillowcases on the back.
Get creative with the sleepover invitation and cut out heads from pictures of you and your friends and then paste them to the invitations. Make it look like you are sleeping in a sleeping bag, wearing big fuzzy slippers or having a pillow fight.
Sleepover Invitation idea: Create little pillows by folding squares of felt or craft foam in half to make pillow cases. If you don’t sew, use a stapler, glue gun or fabric glue to secure the side and bottom edge of the pillow case. Stuff with a little cotton. Write the invitation on a 3 x 5 card and slip it into the pillow.
Text: WHAT HAS 12 LEGS, GIGGLES AND STAYS UP ALL NIGHT? MY SLEEPOVER PARTY, AND YOU'RE INVITED! When making the invitations for your party use the amount of legs for your invited guests and change MY to the Birthday girls name. Thanks for the great idea Movin Girl
What to Write On the Sleepover Invitation
Date and Day of the Sleepover: June 6, 2008 - Friday night
What to bring: Sleeping bag, pillow, bathing suit, towel, anything special that they will need for the party.
When the sleepover begins and ends: Example - 7:00 PM - 10:00 AM
Place of the Sleepover: Make sure to write in your address. Friends might know where you live, but parents will want to have this information. Hint: You might want to draw a map on the back of the invitation.
Telephone number and/or Email for RSVP: Make sure to write in your telephone number. Parents will want this too.
If you will be serving dinner, pizza or snacks (so your friends will know whether to eat or wait until they get to the party to have dinner). Example - We will be having pizza! As a courtesy you might want to ask on the invitation if the invitee has a food allergy - ask the parent to contact you so you can plan accordingly.
Sleepover / Slumber Party ActivitiesMake fun matching t-shirts to remember the sleepover
Buy inexpensive t-shirts or tanks (you can also ask on the invitation for each girl bring one from home) and provide lots of fun iron on letters in different fonts for everyone to use. It's fun to come up with crazy sayings and make matching t-shirts to remember the party. ** Make sure to wash and dry the t-shirts before guests arrive so the iron on's will stick.
Use permanent markers (you are able to sleep on them that night) or fabric pens and have guests sign each others' pillowcases during the slumber party. Decorate and doodle to create a masterpiece. You'll remember how much fun you had with your friends every time you go to sleep.

Song Maker Game - Pick one person at the sleepover to go first for the game. Everyone in the group decides on a title of a song and then the person chosen first must make up a song to go with that title. Example: Little bunnies on my pillow.
Fill shopping bags with 6 different items in each bag. A shoe, hat, party favor etc. - each bag should be filled with different items. Divide into teams and give each team one bag. Go to separate rooms to make up a skit which includes all items in the bag. After 15 minutes come back and perform. Variation: Create a TV commercial or song.
Prize Auction Game
This sleepover game is played with m&m's, skittles or any small candy that comes in different colors. Place candy in a bowl. Sit in a circle and ask the guests to choose 2 candies - without looking. Show them to everyone and then put them in your mouth ... if they are the same color then you can chew them, if not you have to hold them in your mouth until your next turn when you can try and choose 2 more of the same color. You can't chew until you get 2 of the same color.

Play Charades Think of fun things that go with your slumber parties theme and write them down on pieces of paper. Divide your friends into two teams. The first team picks a player to act out a word. The player chooses a word - but doesn't show their teammates. The player then tries to act out the word while her teammates try and guess what she is acting out. If they guess the word the team gets 1 point. Set a timer for 3 minutes - if the team can not guess the word in 3 minutes then the other team gets one guess at what the word is. If they are right they get the point. Play to 10 points.
