Girls Sleepover Activities + Games

These games and activies are a few o our favorite sleepover ideas for teens.

13. Truth or Dare: Truth or Dare will always be fun! It’s just one of those games that make you laugh, scream and be surprised! It’s a great way for everybody to get to know each other better and to have a good time.

14. Balloon Charades: Grabs some paper and write down ideas for Charades. Fold the paper up into skinny rectangles, slide it inside a balloon, blow it up, and use it as a party decoration. When you are ready to play charades give each guest a balloon. Have her pop it – sitting on it is the most fun, read it, and act it out for the other guests to guess.

15. Spin the Nail Polish Bottle: Each girl takes a turn picking out a color and spinning the bottle. This works best on a table. Whoever the bottle points to when it finishes spinning paints a nail with that color.

16. Fun Fact: Each person just has to say a random fun fact about themselves. There’s a catch- you can’t use the same fact twice! It gets more challenging and more fun the more often you do it.

17. Fruit Roll-up Game: Teens LOVE this game! To play, you take a fruit roll-up, hang it out of your mouth, and without using your hands you have to eat the fruit roll-up as fast as you can!

18. Battle of the Oranges: This teen party game is simple but hilariously fun! Two opponents face off each holding a plastic mixing spoon with an orange in it. The object of the game is to knock your opponent’s orange out of their spoon without losing yours.

Minute to Win It Games for Teens

19. Wrap Around: Two players must use colored streamers and wrap the streamers around another player to wrap the player up like a mummy. Teams have one minute to completely wrap the other player up or to make the best overall mummy.

20. Face Cookie: If you’ve ever played minute to win it games before, you’ve probably played this one! Players must put an Oreo (or any other kind of cookie) on their forehead and get it to their mouth using only their face muscles (no hands). I’ve seen this done by using face muscles or by popping the cookie up and catching in your mouth – the former is definitely easier but not as fun!

21. Marshmallow Toss: One person has to throw mini marshmallows one at a time to their teammate who is standing about 4 feet away.  The catcher has to catch them in an empty paper cup.

22. Starburst Stack: One person puts a popsicle stick in their mouth.  The other person stacks as many starbursts as possible onto the end. Once your starbursts are stacked, you must hold for 3 seconds to win!

23. Junk in the Trunk: Wiggle a box that is attached to your waist filled with ping-pong balls until the box is empty. When the clock starts, players may begin moving their bodies to shake the ping-pong balls out. The first one to empty all their ping pongs within 60 seconds or empty the most, wins!

24. Skittle Sort: Pick up the speed, this quick game is super fun! Sort a pile of about 75 skittles into the corresponding colored cups with one hand!

Tasty Sleepover Snack Ideas for Teenagers

25. Midnight Snacks: When you’re staying up late with your besties gossiping about the cute new guy in school there’s gonna need to be a midnight snack!

26. Popcorn Bar: What is better than popcorn at a party or sleepover? Nothing! But, not just any popcorn, though, you can spice your popcorn up a bit using these fantastic recipes:

27. Build Your Own Pizza: Is any sleepover or slumber party complete without pizza for dinner? Including a pizza dinner party allows each guest to customize their own personal pizza toppings as they’d like.

28. Individual Movie Night Snack Box

29. Make Homemade Slushies: Got some Ziploc bags, rock salt, lots of ice, and various juices? Perfect – your teens can use all of this to make their own slushies.

30. French Fry Dipping Sauce Competition: Have each teen create their own dipping sauce, bake up a big bowl of French fries, and let everyone judge their favorites. Here’s a recipe for inspiration, or these recipes.

32. Pancake Bar: Perfect for the morning after a night full of memories and fun.

33. Make a Candy Charcuterie Board: For everyone to nibble from throughout the evening!

34. Tasy Taco Bar: This is usually a hit with teenagers and is something that each teenager can customize on their own. This can be made in both vegetarian and non-vegetarian preferences. The main ingredients required would be the Taco Shells (soft, crunchy, or both), a couple of meat options, diced peppers, tomatoes, onions, salsa, grated cheese, cilantro, etc.

35. Slipper Shaped Desserts

39. Pillow Fight. A classic game. As part of the swag bag items, create mini-pillows. You can often find little pillows at the dollar store or use travel pillows. Decorate them as mentioned above. When it is time for bed, be a cool party host. Tell the girls to grab their mini-pillows. On your mark, set, pillow fight! Just watch out for the lamps 🙂

40. DIY Personalized Pillow Cases: Making personalized pillowcases as a memento from the party can be a huge hit!
