What to Do at your Ultimate Sleepover Party
So, you’ve planned your Ultimate Sleepover Party, you’ve packed and you’ve got everything you are going to be eating all sorted – but what are you actually going to do at your Ultimate Sleepover Party? Don’t fret, because I have all your party games set! Let’s get to it then!
I’ve separated these games into games you might do in the afternoon before you’re in your PJs and are suited for doing outside and games inside in your pajamas. Also make sure that when doing activities where pairing up is necessary that nobody is left out by themselves!
Suck it up
Do you think you have the lungs of an Olympic swimmer or the suck of a vacuum cleaner? It’s time to find out!
A timer or a phone to time
Some Maltesers (two small bags should do)
One straw for each person playing
Two plastic plates or a shallow bowl
Divide the players into 3 or more teams (with at least 3 players in each team).
Put all the maltesers in one bowl on one end of a table and another empty bowl at the opposite end of the table – aim for them to be about 3 or more meters apart.
Set the timer for one minute and let one team at a time try and suck up a malteser with their straw in their mouth, and carry it over to the other bowl and place it in there.
The team with the most amount of maltesers in the end bowl wins!
Toilet Paper Dodge
This one is best done outside in a clear space. Also make sure you clean it all up after playing!
Two rolls of toilet paper per person playing
Rope or cones marking where the line is
Set up an equal line across the lawn and split your party guest into two teams.
Unwind the end of each toilet paper roll a little and give two to each player.
Commence the game of dodge! Players have to try and hit the other team’s players while trying not to get hit themselves. If a player is hit, they must drop all of their rolls and go off to the sideline. They must do 50 star jumps to enter back into the game. The winner of the game is the team who gets all of the other team’s players out at a time.
This is the game for all of you thrifty fashion divas. It’s fantastic what you can create with just tape and newspaper. You can also do this with toilet paper, however it rips more easily than newspaper.
Old newspapers – each pair will need about 2 each
Some making tape - a roll per pair
Split your guests into pairs and give them two newspapers and a roll of masking tape each.
Tell them that they have ten minutes to come up with the best ‘headline’ outfit they can before the fashion show.
Let each pair elect a designer and a model.
After the 10 minutes, hold a fashion show on the ‘runway’ such as a rectangle marked out by rope or cones.
Get your ‘rents to judge the winner!
Spin the Nail Polish
This is the MUCH better alternative to the dreaded ‘Spin the Bottle’ game, which in my opinion is a terrible idea (who wants ‘boy germs’ anyway?).
12 or more colours nail polish bottles
A bottle of nail polish remover
Q tips or cotton balls
Arrange the nail polish bottles in a circle with the nail polish remover bottle lying down in the middle as the spinner.
Get your guests to sit in a circle around the nail polishes and one at a time, spin the nail polish remover bottle. Whichever nail polish bottle the cap end lands on, that guest must paint one of their nails that colour.
Continue around the circle until every girl has painted all of her nails.
Cucumber Face Race
This game is very much like the Cookie Game. If you want, you can always substitute the cucumber slice for a cookie instead.
A cucumber slice for each guest (usually you’ll need a lot more than one per player)
Place a cucumber on each player’s forehead. Everyone should be sitting up straight with their hands behind their backs.
On the word go, everyone uses their facial muscles to move the cucumber slice down their face and into their mouth without using their hands.
The first person who successfully gets the slice into their mouth, chews and swallows it wins!
This has got to be the most hilarious and my favourite theatre sports game ever! Set up a small stage area and get settled in for the laughs!
Two overly large zip-up jumpers or two big dressing gowns
A hat and some paper and a pen
Tear up strips and write scenarios for the game on paper and place them in the hat. Some ideas are:
- An interview with Oprah and a musician
- A football game report
- A marketer trying to sell a food blender
- A weather report at a tornado
- A famous actress interview
- An interview with a really lame comedian
Separate your guests into groups of four and let them separate into pairs.
Pull out one scenario from the hat for the group which they have to act out.
Each pair puts on a large jumper, the Talker at the front and the Mime at the back with their hands through the sleeves.
The Talkers then start the interview with the Mimes acting out their hand movements through the sleeves.
This one is ‘pretty’ simple and self-explanatory, but the results are hilarious!
Some make-up - I recommend:
A selection of colourful eye shadows
I wouldn’t recommend using eyeliner or foundation as you might poke someone’s eye out or it could get very messy.
You’ll also need:
A blindfold or eye mask
Some old sheets or towels
Place the old sheets and towels on the ground and pair off all of your guests.
Have each pair facing each other with all of the make-up in front of them.
Make one person of the pair place on a blindfold and let the madness begin!
The blindfolded person must feel the different types of make-up and apply it to the other person. The other person can also not help or talk to the other blindfolded person.
When done, on the count of three, let the blindfolded person take off their eye mask and see their ‘masterpiece’ and the made over person look in a mirror. The results will be hilarious!
There we go! Plenty of games to keep you entertained all night!
