No Mirror Make-up:
Give each girl some makeup without a mirror
Give them five minutes to put the makeup on
Don't tell the players!  (the  person who did the worst wins)  Truth Or Dare

 I dare you to sniff everyone’s feet in
the room and tell who’s feet smell the worst!
Pool Tag:
Okay so me and my friends always play this game at sleepovers. It really keeps you awake! So one person is it (it’s usually played with like 3-4 people) and the rest have to run away from that person, obviously, but the tricky thing is, its tag around a pool table. But its super fun, even though it sounds really stupid, trust me, it’s not! Rachael Louisiana

Get everyone to sit n a circle with a big bar of chocolate in the middle. Get a hat, scarf and gloves and knife and fork and put them in the middle of the circle too. Everyone rolls a die, and the first one to get a 6 has to put the clothes on and eat the chocolate with the knife and fork! While they are trying to eat it, the die still goes around the circle and the next person to get a 6 has to take over. This carries on until the chocolate is gone. Plenty of fun guaranteed! Meredith

Unwrap It!
Before your party guests arrive wrap a small item (ex. coloring book, keychain) about 7 to 10 times with wrapping paper. It can be the same pattern or different! When you start to play turn on some music and pass it around. When the music stops whoever has it unwraps one layer of wrapping paper. Keep on doing this until someone unwraps the last layer and whoever does keeps what's inside!!! Anonymous

Hang upside-down for 20 seconds Heather

This game is called Cold Spaghetti.
It's a real fun game, but it takes some preparation. You must cook about a pound of spaghetti and then leave it in the refrigerator for about 1 hour. Once it's nice and cold (and slimy), toss in some cheap prizes (lip gloss, key chains, $5 gift card, ect.) and the girls must reach in the cold, slimy spaghetti to get a prize. P.s. Really funny to watch the reactions when they feel it! Ave

Would you rather?
One person asks someone two crazy things like " would you rather eat 20 pizzas or tell or deepest secret?" That person has to pick one thing that they said and explain why. If they can't pick one, dare them  to do something like do the chicken dance. Keep on asking everyone until everyone has had a turn. Rachel

13th Birthday Party Idea
At my 13th birthday this year, I am doing a Chinese take out birthday. we are ordering from the local take out and having a buffet. All my friends love it so i thought it would be a great idea! Don't for get chopsticks! Brandi

Have A Shaving Cream fight. Wear Your Bathing Suit Or Clothes You Don’t Mind Getting Messy. Get  Bottles Of Shaving Cream Not Hair Removal And Spray It On Your Opponent Without Getting Sprayed Yourself, But That's Tough. Note: This Can Get Messy So Do It In Your Backyard Not Around A Pool, A Grassy Area, Or Out In The Street.
Or you can make t-shirts with your last name on the front and a number on the back. Then decorate it Ace

Dare a person to stick out their tongue for the next 5 minutes!! nikki

Hide and Seek in the Dark
What I always love to do at a sleepover is to play Hide "n" Seek in the dark. So on the invitation is to ask everyone to bring a set of clothes that is black or darkly colored. Now go in to a room that has a door to close then, pick one of the girls to be it, then have her count to 60 outside of the room, and while she is counting the other girls hide and when she's done she looks for the other girls. It's a big hit at any sleepover, no matter if you're 5 or if you're 14 it's still fun! Anonymous
For a scavenger hunt.
Take a picture by your movie theater, horses, a cross, picture of the birthday boy/girl, a playground, population of your city or town! Leesaaaa


Ice Breaker this game is called.
You need- Balloons according to how many people. If there's 10 people get 10 baloons..
How it works-
Blow up the balloons and put a spoonful of glitter in each and write on a piece of paper[small piece] Truth or Dare. Give everybody a balloon without telling them what's inside. Everybody dances to music. This is similar to freeze dance. Then when the music stops, everyone freezes. Whoever moves, they have to pop there balloon with their bottom.   And answer either the truth or dare. Ivana , Texas

Tween Spa Party ideas
Put popcorn, nachos, assorted candy etc. on a table (I got this form here about the snacks in table) And you might get thirsty so it’s time for a yummy smoothie!  To make smoothies, put 1/2 frozen fruit (try strawberries, blueberries, or bananas), 1/3 cup orange juice, 1 single serving container yogurt, and 4 or  ice cubes in a blender. Cover and ask an adult to blend until smooth. Serves 2.

After movies it's time for a little hair fun! Get ready to make some Cool American Curls You'll need Fabric Strips and Spray bottle of water. Cut an old t-shirt or pillowcase to make several  1-inch-wide strips about 2 inches longer than your hair. Use spray bottle to lightly mist hair.
Pick a small selection of hair. Hold one of a fabric strip close to head and run it alongside the hair section.  Wrap hair around the strip, then bring  the other end and tie at the scalp. Sleep on the curls, then in the morning, untie for a headful of soft curls.

After you finished with your curls go and play truth or dare get good truths and dares form the Truth and Dare page for great ones. You can make a great gift in memory of the party here is how. Get a poster Board and write Happy Birthday and whoever is the birthday girl. Then make each girl who attended to the party sign their name in the poster board. In the center put a pic of you and the girls in the party and then decorate the board with glitter and rhinestones. Becky

M & M Straws!
Need: Straws (1 for each person at the party) Paper/plastic cups (1 for each person at the party) M & M's (1 or 2 bags). one at a time each person sits down and sees how many M&M's they can get into their cup in a Minute.  Suck in the air on the straw and pick up the M&M’s with the end.  It is fun for everyone this game!


Who Sleeps Where Game
Put numbers in a hat 1-however many people at your sleep over. Everyone, without looking draws a number. The person with number 1 gets to pick where she sleeps first. The girl with number 2 picks next. Then so on. Tracy

Truth :what is your dream job?
Dare :pour a cup of ice cold or hot water on yourself outside

Musical- a lot of people like to sing and act. Well at your sleepover with all your friends get some clothes you don't wear and decorate them with the theme of your sleepover. Then decorate and paint designs on your face. Next write a song all about your friends. Make a video of you singing that song with all your friends in a wacky costume.

You must have heard of this game, but it isn't on your website. We play it adults and kids together: Tie a half blown balloon to each guests ankle with an arms length of string. At the word Go! everyone tries to stomp on each others to pop. Loads of fun! We love playing it on the beach, the sand makes it more challenging!
