Girls Sleepover Activities + Games
Some of our favorite teen sleepover games and activities are listed below.
13. Truth or Dare: The game of “Truth or Dare” is always a good time. You’ll be laughing, screaming, and genuinely surprised by this game. All participants will benefit from this opportunity to socialize and have fun.
14. Balloon Charades: Get out a piece of paper and start jotting down your best Charades strategies. The paper can be folded into long, narrow strips, which can then be inserted into a balloon before being inflated and used to decorate for a party. When it’s time to play charades, pass out balloons to everyone. Tell her to sit on it and get it to pop. Then read it, and then act it out so the rest of the guests can figure out what it says.
15. Spin the Nail Polish Bottle: The girls take turns spinning the bottle and selecting a color. This is most effective when done on a flat surface. When the bottle stops spinning, the person to whom it points paints a nail with the color indicated.
16. Fun Fact: Simply share an interesting anecdote about yourself with the group. However, you are not allowed to reuse the same fact. The more you do it, the more challenging and enjoyable it will become.
17. Fruit Roll-up Game: This is a huge hit among teenagers. Take a fruit roll-up, hang it from your tongue, and eat it as quickly as you can without touching it with your hands.
18. Battle of the Oranges: Teens will have a blast at this easy-to-play party game. Two challengers face off, both holding an orange in a plastic mixing spoon. The goal of this game is to dislodge your opponent’s orange from their spoon without dropping your own.
Minute to Win It Games for Teens
19. Wrap Around: Wrapping one another like a mummy with colored streamers is an activity for two players. Each team has one minute to wrap up the other player as tightly as possible or to create the best mummy.
20. Face Cookie: You’ve probably had the pleasure of playing a game like this one before. In this game, players compete by passing a cookie from their forehead to their mouth using only their facial muscles (no hands).
21. Marshmallow Toss: A member of each team stands about 4 feet apart, and the first person throws mini marshmallows to the second player. The catcher must collect them in an empty disposable cup.
22. Starburst Stack: The popsicle stick is inserted into the mouth of one participant. To add to the pile, the other player stacks as many starbursts as they can. After collecting three starbursts, you must maintain your grip for three seconds.
23. Junk in the Trunk: Swing around a box full of ping pong balls attached to your waist until the box is empty. After the clock has started, players may start moving around to release the ping pong balls. The winner is the player who, in 60 seconds, empties the most or all of their ping pong cups.
24. Skittle Sort: Speed up; it’s a lot of fun to play this game in a short amount of time. Place seventy-five skittles of varying colors into their corresponding containers.
Tasty Sleepover Snack Ideas for Teenagers
25. Midnight Snacks: You can’t stay up all night with your best friends and talk about all the new gossip without having something to eat.

30. French Fry Dipping Sauce Competition: Have the teenagers come up with their own dipping sauces, then bake a large batch of French fries and hold a taste test to see which ones everyone likes best. This recipe, or these recipes, should serve as a source of motivation.
31. S’Mores Upgrade: Allow the teenagers to make s’mores, but give them a new spin by letting them add their favorite dessert toppings like caramel sauce, chopped nuts, or anything else they can think of.
32. Pancake Bar: Just what you need to wake up to after a night of unforgettable experiences.
33. Make a Candy Charcuterie Board: For everyone to nibble from throughout the evening!
34. Tasy Taco Bar: Teenagers enjoy this because they can make it their own, making it more unique. Either vegetarian or non-vegetarian options are available for this dish. Taco Shells (soft, crunchy, or both), two kinds of meat, peppers, tomatoes, red onion, pico de gallo, shredded cheese, cilantro, etc., would be the main ingredients.
35. Slipper Shaped Desserts
