Girls sleepover parties are a part of growing up, having a girly night in can sound like an awesome idea (for girls) but for parents it can be a stressful event, we have some great sleepover party suggestions, tips and ideas to make sure your girls slumber party is the best ever!
Sleepover parties usually don’t involve a lot of sleeping, there is likely to be a lot of giggling, rummaging for food in the fridge and tinkering about until the early hours or straight through til morning if the girls decide to do the all nighter competition to see who can stay up the latest! (yawn)
You need to make sure you leave out plenty of snacks for the girls to give the girls something to munch away on while they are catching up on their chick flicks and exchanging girly gossip about their crazy little lives.
Hot Chocolate, crisps, muffins, popcorn and Doritos with dips are great for the girls to pick at as the night goes along. If you want to prevent hyperactive kids and your looking to have a peaceful nights sleep then your crazy but we recommend you provide the girls with only savory snacks rather than sugary snacks, savory food usually makes the girls feel sleepy rather than hyperactive! You can get some really cool items to help you present the snacks in a fun girly way.
Putting your cakes and snacks on cake stands can make your party snacks look really cool, and you don’t have to blow your budget on the snacks you provide, kids don’t like the fancy things us grown ups do so keep it simple.

This way you can set the boundaries. Here are a few of our truth or dare spin the bottle ideas for your pieces of paper:
|1. Stuff marshmallows in your mouth and sing “twinkle twinkle little star”

A good movie
Whatever your age, a sleepover’s not a sleepover without a good old movie to keep you entertained. Here are a few good movie ideas to choose from!

If you really do want to put an emphasis on relaxation and girly time then buying some face packs and slicing up some cucumber will work a treat. You can leave the girls with them and they will put on their face packs all together without help usually, you can always sneak in when they have it on to take some embarrassing photos of them.
We recommend the Montagne Jeunesse Basket Full of Goodies from argos which has everything the girls will need to have a fun night in with some pampering and it’s only £9.99, you could even get the girls one each to take home and their party bag or one for the birthday girl as a special pamper yourself present.
