How to Plan Your Own Sleepover

You could plan your very own slumber party like Alexa Vega did in the 2004 movie, Sleepover!
Plan Your Own Sleepover

You wanna have some friends over to your place this summer for a sleepover, but you certainly don't want it to be some lame party hosted by your mom. So, what do you need to make this the slumber party of the century? Kidzworld's got your guide to planning the coolest sleepover ever.

The Pre-Planning Stage

First thing you need to take care of when planning a slumber party is to decide who's going to be invited. While a movie night with just your best bud can be fun, a real kickin' sleepover requires at least a few peeps. Try to aim for between four and six people (including yourself). Once you've made your list of guests, hit the mall to grab some funky invitations - if you have time, you should try to make them from scratch with a little construction paper, felt markers, sparkles and glue.
*Note: Remember to remind your guests to bring a sleeping bag and a pillow to the party!

Getting Prepared

Once your guests have been invited, it's time for you to start preparing for the big shin-dig. Talk to the 'rents about getting snacks - stock up on finger foods like chips, veggies and dip, popcorn, five-cent candies - whatever you think you and your pals will want. Make sure you have a bunch of great tunes ready to go, even if that means throwing together your own sleepover compilation. You'll probably want to rent a couple videos, even if watching movies isn't going to be the main event of the party, its good to throw in a flick just before everyone is getting ready to go to sleep.

Games and Activities

The point of a sleepover is to get all your pals together to have as much fun as possible. Plan at least three to four activities that you can all do throughout the evening to ensure that no one is going to get bored. You can give each other make-overs, play truth or dare or take an idea from the Sleepover moive and plan a scavenger hunt! Of course, if a scavenger hunt ends up being one of your sleepover activities, make sure that your 'rents know about it - no sneaking out of the house like the girls in the movie!

An Outdoor Adventure

If you wanna kick your party up a notch, why not plan to sleep outside? A tree house is the perfect place to host an outdoor slumber party, but if you don't have one, a tent in the back yard, or even on your deck works just the same. Once you're all settled in your sleeping bags, get your friends to take turns telling ghost stories! And don't forget to bring a flashlight - after some of those stories, you'll need 'em!

Dear dish-it, Ok, so there's this guy. We have been friends for 7 years now and I have had a crush on him ever since. And I think he might know that. But what I want to know is, does he have a crush on me. He is always making me laugh and smile. He always makes sure that I am ok. Sometimes I catch him looking at me but he looks away when he sees that I saw. We are always talking. When he draw pictures he always shows me. We are near each other a lot. And he is always poking me. I'm fine with it but he is poking me a lot. And just yesterday we had a meeting in the gym and he was sitting behind me, he put his feet on the part of the bench that I wasn't on (which was right behind me), and he was leaning forward towards me. Please help me, Avatar-me
