5 Ideas for a Tween Girl Sleepover
Tween girls love to get crafty but they may have short attention spans when they are at a sleepover. Offer these super cool no-sew tied pillow kits and see what happens.
Unplug & Play Games
A simple game like Charades offers a chance for lots of laughs and bonding. There are other games that don’t require anything except a few instructions.
The Sign Game (Signal Game, Pass the Sign): Summary: Signs is a simple party game involving stealth, silliness, and not getting caught! Players seated in a circle attempt to “pass” a sign (hand motion or gestures) to each other while a guesser tries to catch the person who currently has the sign.
Host a Bake Off
Most girls love to bake and create specialty desserts. Sometimes we will have all the ingredients available so the girls can bake cookies and have some fun decorating however they want!
Pull out Classic Movies
Most tweens have seen all the same movies. They have seen the latest releases and all have the same collections. So when my daughter has sleepovers, we usually pull out a classic movie. I am always amazed at how many have not seen these family favorites.
Adult coloring is definitely trendy now, but tweens love it too. When the girls are too tired to do anything major, a little coloring may be just what you need. Small coloring bookmarks are perfect for doodling while everyone enjoys a late night snack. Just make sure you have several good markers sitting out ready for everyone to be able to enjoy their favorite colors.
